Arkal™ Manual Disc Filters - Light - 8 bar

Arkal™ Manual Disc Filters - Light - 8 bar

Manual Disc Filters are engineered for efficient operation year after year with minimum maintenance.

Colour-coded discs are grooved on both sides to a specific micron size. A series of these discs is then stacked and compressed on a specially designed spine. When stacked, the groove on top runs opposite to the groove below, creating a filtration element with a series of intersecting grooves which traps the solids.

The stack is enclosed in a corrosion and pressure resistant housing. During filtration, the discs are tightly compressed together by a combination of the spring's power and the differential pressure, thus providing high filtration efficiency. Filtration occurs while water is percolating from the outer diameter to the inner diameter of the element. Depending on the micron rating, there are from 18 (in 400 micron discs) to 32 (in 20 micron discs) stopping points in each track, thus creating the unique in-depth filtration.

Manual filters can be used as a stand-alone unit or combined to form modular filter batteries.

Available sizes
50mm and 80mm inlet/outlet diameters with filtration grades from 400µm down to 20µm.
  • Protection of irrigation systems from clogging and or abrasion
  • Flow rates from 1 to 24 m3/h
  • Filter size available 50mm and 80mm
  • Temperature range 1 to 60oC
  • Maximum pressure 8 bar
Product Features
  • Engineered for efficient operation with no maintenance
  • Flat, grooved, plastic rings stack together to form filter element.
  • Depth filtration - increasing filtration efficiency
  • Greater holding capacity as water is filtered through the entire ring depth, not just the surface
  • During filtration, pressure increases and compresses the rings increasing efficiency and protecting the system from clogging
  • Constructed of the highest quality UV protected reinforce polymer plastic
  • Degree of filtration is easily changed by replacing the disc rings with the desired grade size
  • Available in a range of sizes, degrees of filtration and flow capacities
  • Can be operated as stand-alone units or combined to form modular filter batteries
  • Robust design
