Pranger is proud to be the U.S. distributor of Hydrotech microscreen filters for the aquaculture industry, including the Drumfilter. The Hydrotech Drumfilter is a mechanical and self-cleaning filter specially designed for high performance in systems where it is essential to prevent particles from fragmentation.

How a Hydrotech Drumfilter works

How it Works

Water is filtered through the periphery of the drum and particles are carefully separated from the liquid through the special cell structure of the filter panels. As solids build up on the filter cloth, the automatic system starts rotating the drum and initiates the backwash. Solids are gently rinsed off the filter cloth and collected in the waste trough and discharged. The filtration continues on clean filter cloth during the backwash, thus allowing a continuous filtration process. Hydrotech’s unique design of the filter panels prevents fragmentation through careful handling of the solids. This high filtration efficiency is essential in optimizing water quality parameters.

Hydrotech's patented microscreen filter design for drumfilters

Patented Filter Design

Hydrotech’s unique, patented filter panels greatly simplify both the replacement and change out of the filter. The drum is constructed in sections, each with up to six filter panels depending on diameter. With over 20 different drum filter sizes, this modular design facilitates maintenance and makes it easy to adapt the filter to the actual needs of flow capacity and filtration performance requirements.
