Operating Principle

  • The SCAMDISC filter, also called disc filter is made of stacked discs and metal stars (or mesh). The thickness of metal stars determines the micron rating.
  • During rotation of the filter element, trapped impurities are removed by cleaners and fall to the bottom of the body.
  • Then, they are discharged by regular draining through manual or automatic valve.
  • SCAMDISC is available in standard version or ATEX filter which comply with the safety procedures in EXplosive ATmospheres.
