EATON MCF 824 Series Filters features up to 200 GPM throughput with virtually no downtime. The magnetically coupled self-cleaning technology allows for quick and easy access for maintenance, reduces potential leaks, and requires few moving parts while providing a long service life. The simplified design uses only 25 total parts.


  • Permanent media retains valuable product otherwise lost by media change-out
  • Simple design with very few wear parts – for reduced spare parts stocking needs
  • No external shaft or drive seals – eliminates downtime and disposal requirements
  • Easy no-tools access for routine maintenance and service
  • Continuous operation – even during cleaning cycles

EATON MCF 824 Options

  • EPT/EPDM (Nordel™) or Viton® seal material
  • Advanced programmable microprocessors
  • ASME code and CRN design units
  • Automatic pressure transmitters

  • Multi-station configurations
  • Air bleed capability


How the MCF works

Filtrate flows from the top down and from the inside of the media toward the outside to increase retention of contaminants. The unique design uses a spring loaded cleaning disc that travels top to bottom inside the filter media – removing collected contaminants. The cleaning disc and flow continually drive undesirable solids downward, where they are concentrated in the purging chamber for easy expulsion. A hollow shaft at the center of the system contains a piston with powerful rare earth magnets. These internal magnets are coupled to external magnets housed in a carrier connected to the cleaning disc.

Pneumatic actuation moves the inner magnet up and down the shaft, with the outer magnet on the cleaning disc following. The result is powerful actuation, without the need for a physical linkage passing through the vessel.
