v-series automatic filters

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 simplest and most efficient in design resulting in:

  • Fewer moving parts (no limit switches, motors, or pistons reversing the cleaning mechanism),
  • Simpler controls,
  • Lowest flush flow available,
  • Greater cleaning efficiency, and
  • Lower maintenance requirements.

The V-Series' 12 to 15 second flush cycle is automatically initiated when the pressure differential across the screen increases to 0.5 bar (7 psi).  The filter remains on line and the filtration process remains uninterrupted during the cleaning process. The flush discharge is the lowest available resulting in minimal waste.

The V-Series filters can be designed to ASME code and are manufactured in an ASME facility.  The filters are available in a broad range of materials including those that are seawater compatible, as well as pressure ratings and temperature ratings to suit any need.  VAF custom manufactures filters and skids that simplify installation and meet specific requirements.
