Manual Steel Strainers General Information
With their various ﬁlter elements, Timex’s all purpose steel ﬁlters are made for wide range of ﬁltering applications and ﬁltration degrees and are easy to install and maintain. They are made of carbon steel with high quality polyester coating along with stainless steel housings that are also available.
Timex steel ﬁlters need no tools for dismantling or for extracting the ﬁlter element from the ﬁlter housing for rinsing, also visually monitoring the status of the ﬁlter element without disrupting the water ﬂow is easily done with Timex’s innovative clogging indicator connected to the ﬁlter’s pressure check points.
Timex steel ﬁlters can be upgraded to semi-automatic operation by adding one of Timex’s exclusive Turboclean, Brushaway or Scanaway assemblies.
Timex supplies various ﬁlter elements for its steel ﬁlters in order to cover wide range of ﬂow rates, multiple ﬁltration degrees and applications:
Stainless steel Screen elements: (1)
These screen elements are constructed of molded plastic ribs that support a stainless steel weave-wire screen for ﬁltration degrees of 50 to 800 micron.
Perforated stainless steel elements: (2)
Suitable for coarse ﬁltration (straining) between 800 and 3,500 micron The direction of ﬂow in these screen elements is from the inside out along the element, therefore the suspended solids accumulate on the inside surface of the screen while the O-rings incorporated to the cylinder ends provide perfect sealing of the element inside the ﬁlter housing.
This arrangement allows:
• Easy removal of the screen element from the ﬁlter housing for rinsing
• The accumulation of inorganic suspended solids at the end of the element to be easily removed by means of a ﬂush valve
• Effective separation of inorganic particles
• Very low pressure loss
Disc Elements: (3)
The disc elements are made to provide high retention of organic substances and are constructed from plastic discs that are stacked onto a telescopic core. The discs are grooved on both sides and intersected to form the ﬁltration element when compressed on the telescopic core. The direction of ﬂow in these elements is from the Outside In along the element, therefore the effective ﬁltration area is comprised of both the outside surface and the channels formed by the intersected grooves. Suspended organic particles adhere to the grooved surface adding depth to the ﬁltration process.
Cleaning the disc element is made simple by the unique design of the telescopic core which allows the discs to separate during the cleaning process while maintaining perfect sealing when the element is in the ﬁlter housing.
