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.
