High Flow Mechanically Cleaned Strainers

 

MCS-500MCS5002Mechanically cleaned strainers are based upon the MCF-824 filter design, except they are built for  water-like fluids and coarser levels of particle retention, typically no finer than 150 microns.

The fast cleaning magnetically coupled actuation improves performance and reduces costly maintenance and downtime. This actuation method eliminates the need for cover thru-holes and their associated seals.

 

Principle of Operation

Fluid flows into the top and down through the center of the strainer element, passing through the element walls and exiting through the outlet port.  As material collects within the ID of the strainer element, a spring loaded cleaning disc travels the length of the element pushing this material towards the bottom of the housing and into the purge chamber.  The hollow shaft at the center of the system contains rare earth magnets; an internal magnet is coupled to an external magnet.  Pneumatic actuation from standard shop compressed air injected through the base of the center column pushes the internal magnet up and down.  The outer magnet within the cleaning disc to follows the internal magnet.  This patented design eliminates physical linkage passing through the vessel.

 

spring discThe concentrated solids within the purge chamber are easily flushed form the housing in a matter of seconds because it contains no horizontal surface.

 

The quartered and spring loaded cleaning disc is designed to ensure even and consistent force against the element to maximize cleaning efficiency.

 

Mechanically cleaned strainers cost from $22,000 to $35,000 depending upon size and features. Please fill-out our inquiry form which will prompt for the design criteria required to provide a detailed proposal.
