Frequently Asked Questions

What are self cleaning filters and how they work?
These filters are designed to remove oversize and contamination from liquids. The mechanism of the automatic filter allows liquid to be filtered through the machine in a continuous flow, while the mechanical scrapers on the inside of the filter removes oversize materials. These industrial filters work by utilizing a wiper system on the inside of the strainer to continuously remove and discharge oversize and contamination. The SpiroKlene™ wiper system is a cylindrical filter element that rotates and cleans the inside of the filter, simultaneously pushing good material through the screen and moving contamination down to be collected and discharged.

Are these filters automated?
These filters continuously remove contamination, with the discharge of the collected debris being manual or automated. The automatic filtration process involves the Russell Filter Management System™ which releases the valve automatically, allowing the process to be fully operator free. The inline filtration system becomes fully automatic with the connecting pipes continuously filtering and discharging the liquids.

How fine can you filter?
The mesh inside of these filters can be as fine as 10 microns without compromising flow rates and end-quality. These filters can filter out fine contamination and agglomerates from difficult liquids such as high-temperature and high-viscosity products.
