"SAF"
automatic filters
for flow rates up to 400 m/h

The SAF filter series are sophisticated yet easy to operate


automatic filters, with a self cleaning mechanism driven by an
electric motor.
These Amiad automatic- self-cleaning electric filters are
suitable for more applications than ever, and were designed to
work with various types of screens.

How the SAF filters work

Operation principle
The water enters through the inlet pipe into the coarse screen from outside in, and through the
from inside out. The Filtration Cake accumulates on the fine screen surface and causes head loss
The coarse screen is designed to protect the cleaning mechanism from large particles.
Self-cleaning process
The SAF filter starts the self cleaning process when the pressure differential across the screen re
set value or a predeterminated lapse of time.
Cleaning of the filter elements is carried out by the suction scanner which rotates in a spiral mov
removing the filtration cake from the screen and expels it out through the exhaust valve, during
cleaning process, which takes approximately 40 seconds, filtered water continues to flow downst
Control-system
Two types of control boards are available for the SAF filter, PLC type and Relay type enable you

large filter, simple construction


reliable operation mechanism
ideal solution for filtration of low quality water
minimal flushing flow rate required
minimal quantities of flushing water - allows operator in continuous flushing mode without
water, or interrupting the water supply downstream
