The V-SeriesTM design is the most recent, state-of-the art self-cleaning screen filtration technology available today.  The complexity and cleaning efficiency of any self-cleaning screen filter is in the mechanical system that drives the cleaning process.  The V-Series patented Bi-directional Hydrodynamic Drive (BHD) mechanism is the most efficient and simplistic design resulting in:

  • Fewer moving parts (electric motors, gear boxes or pistons are not required to reverse the cleaning mechanism)
  • Simpler controls (no limit switches)
  • Lowest flush flow available
  • Greater cleaning efficiency
  • Lower maintenance requirements

The V-8000 requires a 12 to 15 second  flush time for each of up to four flush valves.  The flushing cycle is automatically initiated when a pressure differential across the filter increases to 0.5 bar (7 psi).  The filter remains on-line and the filtration process is uninterrupted during the brief cleaning process.  The flush discharge is the lowest available resulting in minimal waste.

The V-Series filters are available with ASME Section VIII certification.  The filters are available in a broad range of materials, pressure ratings, and temperature ratings to suit any need.  VAF custom manufactures filters and skids that simplify installation and meet specific requirements.
