The Shearing Nozzle

The key feature of the K Factor Filter is the shearing action produced by the unique shearing nozzle. The liquid to be filtered flows into the header box and then is evenly distributed across the filter media via

"The Shearing Nozzle"

The filter media is on a steep slope to create the shear. The flow of liquid from the nozzle impacts on the media creating "The Shearing Action". The unwanted solids are pushed to the bottom of the sealed basin and the clean filtered liquid flows through the selected filter media. This unique feature reduces the footprint, reduces the amount of media used and improves the filtration.

The shearing nozzle is situated close to the filter media to create a shearing action on impact. The flow enters the header box and impacts on the media to push the solids to the bottom of the sealed basin to:

  • increase filtration
  • reduce the amount of filter media used
  • smaller footprint
  • smaller particle removal

The K Factor Filter "Removes all the solids" regardless of:

  • Size
  • Shape
  • Specific gravity
  • Concentration of dirt
  • Type
