|SAMCO Tubular Backwash Systems (TBS) are used in a host of
applications for the removal of particulates from liquid
streams. Various filtration materials from slotted wedge-wire,
wire mesh, cloth and cast membranes are used depending on the
specifics of a given application. Individual tubes are available
in a range of sizes and materials of construction.
Single tube units are often used for batch processes.
However, by periodically backwashing a filter element with a
clean liquid, a Tubular Backwash element can be regenerated in
place. Tubular Backwash units can also be used in continuous
flow applications by using multiple tubes that are arranged in
manifold to form a system. When a predetermined differential
pressure or amount of time is reached, each tube is isolated by
valves and backwashed individually thus allowing for reuse even
when a continuous filtered liquid flow is required.
|Internal backwash systems use a portion of the filtered
liquid as the backwash supply. If the filtered liquid is not
desirable to use in this capacity, an external backwash design
can be specified allowing for an alternate backwash supply
source to be used.
