ProfiDrum Stainless Drum Filters how it works:
The water enters the profidrum through the inlets on the dirty side of the drum, the water contains mechanical waste that flows through in to the centre of the drum where the 70 micron screen catches the mechanical waste until the water level on the clean side of the drum drops past two probes that trigger the drum to rotate and at the same time trigger the high pressure pump to jet the dirt trapped on the screen down a stainless steel waste chute to waste. The water level on the clean side of the drum returns back to its normal clean level.
The innovative control panel gives you access to a fully adjustable duration of the rinse anything from from 12 seconds to several minutes depending on the amount of food and time of year.
Full control is also available for the duration of the gearbox to rotate the drum. During the flushing process, the high pressure pump is powered up so that the drum can be cleaned using the integrated nozzles on the spray bar.
The dirt is caught in elongated slots composite screen panels a little like how a water wheel works inside the drum this lifts the dirt out the water up and over the chute and ejected to waste through the waste chute. This cleaning process uses about 1.5 ltrs of water.
As soon as the probes detect that the water level is reached this stops the rinsing process meaning the screen is once again clean and whole process starts again.
