Precisionscreen have designed a water filter system to help condition the feed water to various types of sand washing plants. Water is sourced from a dam/pond through the suction hose that has a foot valve or gauze filter on the intake, this allows for the water to pass through quickly and restrict larger elements/organics from entering the pump. This however still lets fine particles of organics to pass through and sent to the wash plant (anywhere up to 10mm particle sizes).
Most wash plants are generally fitted with a number of fine spray nozzles that scrub and turn the fine particles of sand to help liberate it from the silt/clay before moving downstream. Over the years Precisionscreen encountered a problem in keeping these nozzles clean which effectively left the bottom deck spraying (most important) inefficient.
To combat the problem Precisionscreen have introduced a standalone water filter System that can go in line with your water feed, generally located close to the spray bar water entry point. The fully galvanised housing is fitted with a specially designed 500micorn metal wedge wire filter. The filter capacity allows for water flows up to 3000 Litres per minute.
The filter housing has two pressure gauges fitted to the lid to help identify a variance in water flow indicating filter blockage. The hinged filter lid simply opens up allowing the operator to quickly and easily hose out the filter from the inside without the need for removing the actual filter. The tap on the bottom of the housing allows the water to escape with the organics leaving a clean filter in minutes. The lid is closed and the process is ready to start again.
This is a must have filter for anyone washing Sand where they run fine nozzles.
