Eriez HydroFlow STAR Filter
Eriez' innovative HydroFlow Star Filter is a patented, automatic system using a centrifugal pump to draw liquid through a permanent media element with an optional feed of cellulose filter-aid for extra fine filtration. The Star Filter system eliminates problems common with rotating vacuum drum filters. Typically, Star Filters are installed as central systems with flow rates about 80 GPM and nominal filtration of 1-3 microns.
Applications requiring this level of filtration include grinding, machining, superfinishing and rolling mills working steel, carbide, glass, ceramic, aircraft allows, cast-iron and aluminum. Filter operation is simple and is very easy to service making it deal for blinding applications where roll media filters are challenging.
