Top 3 Benefits of Having An Automatic Filter

An automatic filter is one that cleans itself, meaning the trapped dirt and waste doesn’t have to be manually removed. This type of filter can have some significant advantages, particularly for systems that involve large flow rates and high-pressure systems. Automatic filters eliminate the hassle of cleaning and waste disposal, and they tend to save time. An automatic filter may be a no-brainer, so if you are considering whether a self-cleaning filtration system would be best for you, take a look at the following four benefits they provide:

1. Requires No Regular Maintenance

An automatic filter is self-cleaning, so it doesn’t come with the need for regular maintenance and all the costs and difficulties associated with it. Maintenance means costly downtime and paying someone to carry out the labour. Filter element disposal also comes with a set of regulations that are inconvenient and time-consuming. With an automatic filter, all of this takes care of itself.

2. Optimises Filtration Efficiency

The self-cleaning properties of an automatic filter mean it always functions at optimal capacity. Choosing an automatic filter will maximise both uptime and the long-term efficiency of your filtration system.

3. Energy Costs Are Low

As disposable filter media captures the debris from the fluid passing through it, the differential pressure across the filter increases and the rate of flow decreases slightly. If the filter assembly is fitted with a by-pass valve then on reaching the by-pass valve setting, the by-pass valve will open allowing unfiltered fluid to pass. When this happens, the filter consumes the same amount of power but does less work, meaning the fluid cleanliness levels will increase significantly very quickly. An automatic filter will clean itself on reaching a differential pressure setting, so the filter stays effective, working at the same capacity for the same cost.
