Self Cleaning Filters – Gravity

Baleen Filter

Product Overview

The Baleen Filter is a highly-efficient non-pressurised self-cleaning solution for separating solids from wastewater streams, and offers several compelling benefits and advantages over conventional systems.

It was designed to overcome problems with traditional systems of treating industrial and municipal wastewaters, which typically involve segregation of contaminants by less effective settling or flotation methods, which can create adverse effects like increased odours, and significant maintenance issues, such as sludge handling.

From a commercial perspective, Baleen Filter based solutions for industrial wastewater treatment typically provide a payback within 12-24 months, with much reduced costs for maintenance of wastewater treatment systems, increased water recycling/reuse and easy recovery of by-products.

The Baleen Filter:

> Is environmentally friendly (reduced or no chemicals required);

> Has a small physical footprint thus saving valuable land;

> Is simplicity in industrial wastewater management.

Filtration and separation equipment may be divided into two classes; those that offer a “process” use, and those that offer a “utility” use. Most “process” applications are very-specific to industry, whereas “utility” applications are simply characterized by the nature of the fluid, and are relatively independent of industry. The Baleen Filter falls into the “Process” filter category.

How It Works

The Baleen Filter uses a double act of high pressure, low volume sprays, one which dislodges material caught by the filter media, whilst the other spray sweeps the material away for collection.

This process removes even the most troublesome of constituents such as grit, suspended and fibrous matter, grease and oil from water without blocking the filter to enable smooth continuous operation.

As water flows through the filter media, solids initially suspended in the water are left behind. But before they accumulate to block the screen media the second spray transports these contaminants away from the filtering zone, enabling the filtering process to continue without disruption.

Product Name

The name ‘Baleen’ is the anatomical name for a particular whalebone belonging to the group of filter-feeding whales. The baleen is essentially the filter mechanism that enables the whale to collect krill and other marine organisms during feeding; whilst a sweeping action of its tongue and the reversal of water-flow as the whale dives and re-surfaces enables the straining of food, and cleaning of their baleen prior to next meal. The Baleen Filter technology is an engineered adaptation of this natural technique used by the Baleen whale.

Custom Design

The scalable, modular Baleen Filter technology and supportive components are custom designed to meet individual client needs. Solutions depend on the industry, and relevant occupational health and safety or process considerations, the application and treatment objectives, and expectations, and the scale and number of units required.
