Membrane filtration is essential to any industrial facility that produces wastewater, but these membranes are fragile. While the purpose of these membranes is to filter out unwanted elements, larger particles can damage the membrane if uninhibited. Many units will remedy this through filters and manual strainers, which are designed to catch those larger particles. Those strainers often need replacing, as they can become clogged and stall. It is at this point that a maintenance team will need to open up the filtration system to replace the strainer, taking time and money. Fortunately, innovations have created a solution for this issue.
Automatic scraper strainers are built to clean themselves with brushes and blades, drastically increasing the lifespan of these strainers. They work to dislodge contaminants and keep the water flowing smoothly towards the membrane. Innovations like these are almost invisible to the naked eye, yet their presence saves thousands of dollars in maintenance. The automatic scraper strainer creates efficiency in water filtration, and efficiency innovations are the beating heart of the manufacturing industry.
