Each independent media plate is made up of two rectangular cloth panels which face each other within a stationary framework. Influent enters the filter, then is directed to the bottomside of each plate. Suspended solids collect on the interior surfaces of the cloth plates or settle to the bottom of the channel, with clean, treated water collecting in the filter's main tankage area.
As solids accumulate on the cloth surface, water level in the influent channel begins to rise, eventually initiating a backwash operation. Each independent cloth plate is cleaned in sequence by allowing gravity to force flow in reverse. Backwash flow is produced entirely by gravity, by simply opening each plates associated backwash valve. Air is injected within the interior of the plate during backwash to enhance cleaning.
Fluidyne FFP™ Cloth Media Filters feature an innovative fixed panel design that uses simple gravity to produce filtration and backwash flow. This high performance, low-operating cost, tertiary cloth media filter is suitable for both large and small wastewater treatment applications.
