Auto-Klean 15JP

auto-klean® 15JP self-cleaning filters are of all-metal plate-type construction and operate on the edge-filtration principle. The filter is cleaned without interrupting the flow of liquid by one complete turn of the handle attached to the element spindle. This action deposits all the solids accumulated around the element into the filter sump. Magnetic inserts are incorporated in the sump drain plugs to give additional protection against ferrous particles. 15JP filters can be supplied with either an electric motor or ratchet-drive for fully automatic or continuous cleaning. Special steam-jacketed designs are available for high temperature service.

FLOW RATES

The flow rates listed below cover only a limited range of applications. Capacities for other liquids and filter meshes will be quoted on request. For discharge filters the capacities are based on a pressure drop of 0.1 to .015 Kg/cm2 (1.5 to 2lb/in2) across a clean element. Maximum flow rate for any conditions 16 metres3 (3,500 gallons) per hour.
