Heco Auto-line filters are designed as compact self-cleaning automatic filters made from stainless acid-proof EN 1.4404 steel with a wide range of applications. The robust construction of the filter makes it suitable for cleaning practically all liquids, including paint, lacquer, lubricating oil, bitumen, HFO, grease, paint, toothpaste, water, fermentation liquids, petrol, syrup, condensate, CIP liquids, antibiotic suspensions, many types of waste water etc.
In the cleaning process the dirt is scraped into a sludge chamber from where it is drained away from the filter at appropriate intervals. This results in a defined and absolute cleaning of the filter.
The drainage of the filter takes place through the bottom valve, which can be set to be activated after a certain number of scrapings. Due to this the sludge is being concentrated before it is pushed out of the filter. This means that product loss is reduced to a minimum.
