EATON DCF 3000 Mechanically Cleaned Filters

Eaton DCF 3000 Mechanically Cleaned Filters’ dual cleaning disc and twin actuator design can be fabricated in a variety of materials and options with temperatures up to 400°F. It is ideal for highly viscous, abrasive or sticky liquids with flow rates of up to 500 GPM. For water-like liquids, it can handle flow rates up to 1500 GPM.

When processing high viscosity liquids for demanding applications, the Eaton DCF 3000 filter’s twin actuator, dual disc models deliver tremendous benefits. It is available in a wide range of flow rates up to 1500 GPM (341 m³/hr) with retentions of 15 to 1,100 microns. Utilizing the proven features of the DCF 1600 twin mechanically cleaned filter, yet designed with 2.5 times the capacity, the Eaton DCF 3000 filter is compatible with a wide range of fluid process conditions. A maximum operating pressure of 150 PSI along with a maximum temperature of up to 400°F allows for multiple seals and cleaning disk materials options. Two actuators isolate the actuation mechanism from the filtrate with a bridged system. The benefit is a long operating life for high pressure, high temperature conditions.
