Q-Filter® is used for the filtration of aqueous fluids and uses filter cloth from a roll, in combination with vacuum, to remove particles from aqueous media. As the dirt builds up on the filter cloth, the vacuum in the clean tank is increased to continu filtration. When the vacuum reaches the maximum, the filter cloth is indexed to make some new filter cloth available for filtration.
Q-Filter® creates an underpressure of up to -200 mbar and continuously increases and decreases the vacuum, in response to the process conditions, for optimal performance. The system automatically adjusts to fluctuations in the amount of fluid coming, the nature and amount of dirt in the fluid and the fliter cake build up on the filter cloth.
The following features are characteristic for the Q-Filter® systems. As a result of these features it is possible to filter down to very low particle sizes without high filter cloth usage and filtration cost. This makes Q-Filter® the perfect solution for applications like high pressure deburring, high pressure cleaning, aqueous cleaning baths, machine coolants and emulsions and many more.

The Q-Filter® is provided with its own dedicated controller which is an essential part of the Q-Filter® system. The controller software includes the special routines and algorithems which are responsible for the dynamic behaviour and self-adjusting feature of the Q-Filter®.
For the controller hardware a standard Siemens Logo! is used. To ensure maximum availability and warrant optimal performance, the software has been protected and is not user accessible. For the same reason it is not possible to make any changes to the software or add functionality or use different hardware.
All equipment is mounted behind the covers to protect it. The covers can easily be removed to provide free access to all items for maintenance and trouble shooting.
The Q-Filter® can be supplied with various options.
