Heavy Sludge Filter

The K-Factor Heavy Sludge Filter is a reliable upgrade to the standard K Factor Filter and specifically designed to accommodate heavy solid loadings. This separation filter is ideal for filtering paint sludge, phosphates, and other dense solid applications. The deeper filter bed and extended settling intervals translates into less media consumption and delivers uninterrupted flow.

How the K-Factor Heavy Sludge Filter  Works

  1. The liquid flow enters the K-Factor Heavy Sludge Filter via the header box which evenly distributes the stream across preselected and appropriate media.
  2. The contaminated liquid is confined between two sealing wheels employing the media to capture the solids.
  3. As the liquid level between the two sealing wheels rises, a fluid level float sensor initiates the cleaning cycle. During this sequence fresh media is automatically introduced and the soiled media exits the filter.
  4. Throughout the process, solids-free filtered liquid is returned to the process for reuse.
