The filter is equipped with a coarse screen that protects the finer screen from stones and larger particles. The coarse screen can be periodically cleaned manually. Automatic flushing of the fine screen is activated once the pressure differential (ΔP) in the filter reaches a pre-determined value (up to 0.5 bar). During the flushing cycle, the flushing valve opens, pressure is released from the hydraulic piston and debris-laden water is discharged through the flushing valve. Pressure in the hydraulic motor chamber and the dirt collector is significantly lowered causing the dirt collector nozzles to move along and rotate cleaning the whole internal screen surface. The flushing cycle takes 5 seconds. The flushing valve closes at the end of the cycle, pressure reapplied to the piston, moving the nozzles back to their rest position, and the filter is cleaned. During the whole process water supply is uninterrupted.
