Golf Course Irrigation

Recreational green fields like golf courses need to be maintained in a certain level of quality to make them appealing for people to come back.

Attaining a smooth grass surface on golf fields isn’t easy. The type of grass, cutting height and mowing frequency, fertilizing, and sand topdressing are all very important steps to achieve that perfect look. One of these important key steps is a properly working irrigation system. Uninterrupted operation of the irrigation system requires proper water filters. To prevent clogging of sprinklers and irrigation lines, Filternox® developed self cleaning filters which are designed as per system’s requirements and suitable for water sources such as well water and lagoon water.

Filternox® filters offer protection of system components, less maintenance requirement, low footprint and continuous, user friendly, efficient operation. Contact us today for a custom solution.

Great success of Filternox filter with 20 micron during Shanghai test

HIGH TSS FILTRATION IN 20 MICRON

As an automatic self-cleaning filter manufacturer, Filternox® has designed patented new technology products to guarantee continuous filtration under high TSS conditions.

The sea water quality varies widely in various ports around the world and some of them, especially in Shanghai and Hamburg, where there is intense traffic, includes excessive high particle load. This situation causes serious problems especially in terms of ballast water.

Very high amounts of suspended solids cause two main problems if they cannot be effectively filtered out of sea water.

  • Organic and inorganic particles, which form suspended solids, accumulate in the ballast tanks of the vessels and cause a serious additional weight. The additional weight created by the accumulated sludge increases the energy costs and causes operational difficulties resulting from sludge removal operations. The disposal of the removed sludge  is also a serious problem, while it is only possible to clean it in dry dock.
  • The second problem is that most Ballast Water Treatment Systems (BWTS) outlet water quality is not able to fulfill the IMO and the US Coast Guard standards due to the continuous failure of the automatic filter, which cause severe operational distress, damage and loss of time.

As is known, the filtration level of the filters used in ballast water treatment systems should be very low, since it is necessary both to reach the above mentioned standards and to increase the efficiency of the disinfection system, which is applied after filtration.

In the light of this information, the Filternox® R & D group applied for the test of their specially designed filter with double-action cleaning system, developed in 2018, in an accredited test facility in the Netherlands.

The test includes two objectives:

  • The first objective is to ensure the highest possible removal of living organisms.

As a result of the 20 micron filtration test, the rate of living organism removal in the Filternox double cleaning system was 99%.

  • The second objective is to perform the highest pollution concentration test where the filter can perform all functions without interruption.

For this purpose, the so-called test “Shanghai Test”, the synthesized sludge was dosed into the filter inlet water to adjust the water to be filtered to the SS value of 1850 ppm. As a result of this test carried out with a 20 micron filter screen, the Filternox® filter has successfully completed uninterrupted operation by providing perfect cleaning on the screen surface after every automatic backwash with all its functions.

 

The tests were carried out for 5 days and were registered with a detailed result report. Those interested can request a detailed report of this test from info@filternox.com.

The success of the tests is the result of in-depth experience of Filternox® staff,  contributing to the design of Filternox® products over 30 years.

As Filternox® team, we invite everyone who have problems in ballast water filtration and in other filtration applications to contact us for meeting their needs in the most appropriate way and to experience the comfort of our internationally patented solutions.

Like sea water, surface water also contains a wide variety and sizes of contaminant particles. To effectively meet this challenge, filtration units require both coarse and fine automatic filtration. Sediment build up and the consequent loss of efficiency is one of the main problems in heat exchangers, nozzles, ion exchange systems, seals, membranes and other sensitive equipment.

To prevent unscheduled and unforseen system shut downs for cleaning, the installation of Filternox® Automatic Self Cleaning Filters will remove suspended particles from the incoming water source such as lake water and river water, thus providing uninterrupted operating conditions.

The use of Filternox® Automatic Self Cleaning Filters helps maintain optimum pumping conditions by preventing pressure drop caused by sediment build up.

Filternox recently designed an enhanced new filter model especially for surface water treatment applications.

The size of dirt particles contained in sea water varies widely. Therefore sea water filtration needs more care than other fluids. A very special filtration solution is required to remove particles from 10 mm at one end of the spectrum down to 50 micron particles at the other. It requires filtration of both coarse and fine particles at the same time.

Filternox® offers special models, KFH, KTW and KQR which have both coarse and fine filtration stages in one body and both featuring an independent automatic self-cleaning system.

Filternox® automatic self cleaning filters are used for sea water filtration on oil platforms, the protection of heat exchangers, ultra filtration and Reverse Osmosis units as well as recreational uses.

Another important consideration in the filtration of sea water is the corrosive effect it has. Filternox® offers the best permanent solution with a rubber coating over its stainless steel body.

Reduction of available fresh water sources has become a major problem in recent years. The consequent reduction in water volume has also increased the concentration of contaminants and pollution. Because of this problem, modern irrigation systems, using either underground or surface water are requiring more efficient filtration systems.

Automatic irrigation filters protect irrigation and fertilizing systems from all kinds of particles and assure years of continued operation without letting drippers and sprinkler nozzles clog by suspended solids such as algae, sand, leaves, molluscs, etc.

Filternox® auto clean filters are the perfect solution for golf courses, agriculture, gardening and all applications wherever water economy and flawless operation is required.

Automatic backflush filters offer a special hydraulic control system which triggers the back-flush without requiring any extra energy other than the pressure of water.  Also during the back flush, there is no interruption of water flow with this hydraulic control system.

We produce double stage automatic self-cleaning models to be implemented directly to the surface water ahead of the irrigation system which require no additional investment.

    Cooling towers act in a similar way to air scrubbers by collecting all particles from the surrounding environment into the cooling water. These particles, such as dust, sand, algaes and pollen easily attach to hot surfaces during circulation inside the cooling system and cause clogging, fouling and reduction in efficiency of the process, which results in the shut down of the system for cleaning. Efficient filtration is very important for maintaining the continuous operation of the cooling system.

    By using Filternox® filters in your HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) or  cooling tower water treatment systems, either as sidestream or full flow applications, you will avoid all of these problems.

    By filtering the cooling water, you will also decrease chemical material consumption for water conditioning. (chlorine, biocides, algaecides, etc.)

    A decrease in efficiency due to the accumulation of particles is one of the main problems with heat exchangers. Even a minor layer of scale causes a dramatic decrease in the transfer of heat which can result in the unforeseen shut down of the system for cleaning.

    Filternox® automatic self cleaning filters, by removing all suspended solids and particles, provide uninterrupted working conditions for heat exchangers.

    As well as protecting heat exchangers, Filternox® automatic self cleaning filters will also provide protection for nozzles, ion exchangers, seals, membranes and other sensitive equipment installed in your system.

    The use of Filternox® automatic self cleaning filters help maintain optimum pumping conditions through the prevention of pressure drop caused by sediment build up.

    Dam water used for the cooling of the turbine bearing and sealing equipment of the hydroelectric power plants, contains different sizes of particles as all the surface waters creating fouling in the pipes and heat exchanging surfaces and damaging the turbine bearings and seals.

    The continuous operation of the turbines has vital importance for the hydroelectric power plants.

    Filternox® automatic self-cleaning strainers provide a solution to this filtration problem with two stage filtration models, which offer a convenient and cost effective way to address water treatment challenges in hydroelectric power plants, extending the life of bearings and seals equipment and reducing maintenance and operating costs.

    Well water filtrationFiltration of well water is becoming one of the most important forms of filtration in the environmentally changing world. High carbon emissions along with the increasing greenhouse effect have dramatically reduced underground water supplies. This in turn, increases the amount of both organic and inorganic contaminants in the well water that is pumped through pipelines and other systems, creating the need of filtering well water.

    Along with this, fluctuations in weather patterns have limited the availability of surface water in certain locations, increasing the demand for water from wells. As a result, the filtration of well water is becoming a very important challenge in today’s environment.

    Filternox® automatic self cleaning well water strainers provide an effective filtration to reduce operational costs of many applications.

    Experts in Water Reuse & Recycling

    The world will begin running out of clean water!

    Global clean water shortages to be expected at alarmingly increasing rates in the near future.

    Clean water has become a major problem since water usage has increased with the increasing population and the development of the industries. Water shortage brings people to seek for alternative water sources for irrigation.

    The problem is: “How do municipalities, especially the municipalities in the Middle East, continue to irrigate green fields? How are they going to build new green zones? How are we going to maintain recreational areas such lawns and gardens?”

    The answer is to reuse wastewater! Especially in the Middle East, water shortage has led people to use treated sewage effluent (TSE) as a water source for landscaping. With wastewater recovery, it is possible to supply the amount of water used in landscaping. In this case, filtration and disinfection become important together with a properly operating water treatment plant.

    At this moment Filternox® Filters are on the scene.

    Why Filternox?

    As Filternox® we are involved in many landscaping & irrigation projects worldwide and specifically, we have many filtration applications which were held by UAE. Depending on the water quality, Filternox® recommends its high technology SPT-WBV-MR filters which can handle high dirt loads.

     

     

    Patented technology SPT-WBV-MR filters have many advantages for the municipalities such as;

    • Less maintenance requirement in the irrigation system with our non-clog filter
    • Saving regular maintenance time and labor cost due to blockages in irrigation equipment
    • Low footprint with its compact design even in high flow rates
    • Easy installation horizontally or vertically, both inline and online
    • Low installation cost
    • The lowest head loss with its special design
    • Simple design, at least 50% less parts (spare parts and consumables) compared to the old technology filters
    • Easy control of all operations from the control panel
    • Optional remote monitoring and control available
    • Adjustable duration and the speed of the back-flushing to minimize the amount of drainage water

    One of the most important features of Filternox® Filters is that they are non-clog type. In order to test this characteristic and prove it, our double cleaning technology filter has been challenged with the “Shanghai Test” in Holland. During this test, our filter with a filtration level of 20 microns has faced with 2000 ppm (suspended solids) artificial mud and eventually it continued its normal operation after each back-flush.

    Municipal maintenance directors, consultants, and contractors are welcome to contact us and let us begin solving their problems to reduce maintenance costs together. With our more than 30 years of expertise in the field, we are ready to make tailor made designs for your applications with no extra cost.

    Below photos show the difference between before and after Filternox® Filter applications. The irrigation system protection was improved dramatically and can be clearly seen on landscaping greenery area.

    FILTERNOX® IN SOLUTION MINING

     

    soda ash - mining

    The Solution Mining Research Institute (SMRI) defines solution mining as “mining of underground, water-soluble minerals, usually using one or more drilled wells to dissolve the minerals with water”. Minerals such as salt, potash, trona, and magnesium salts may be produced by pumping saturated fluid from underground caverns. The caverns are created by pumping out the saturated ‘brine’ while pumping in fresh water as a controlled production process. The minerals are then recovered from the saturated fluid by recrystallization.
    Filternox® played a big role in the second biggest trona reserve in the world. Trona reserves are meant to be dissolved with hot water injection by production wells, which then forms trona solution (brine).  This mining facility provides the trona solution (brine) which is the raw material of the process plant.

    PROCESS

    The trona (sodium sesquicarbonate Na2CO3 NaHCO32H2O) is mined by solution mining, a safe and environmentally friendly mining technique. The trona solution, i.e., brine which is subjected to monohydrate process in the production lines of process unit is converted into Dense Soda Ash and Sodium Bicarbonate products, and 2.5 million tons of Dense Soda Ash and 200,000 tons of Sodium Bicarbonate is produced annually.

    DENSE SODA ASH (SODIUM CARBONATE)

    Dense soda ash produced from trona at the plant is used in a wide range of industrial areas such as glass industry, paper production, and detergent production. Sodium Carbonate is a basic salt. Its aqueous solution is clear and colourless, and its chemical formula is Na2CO3.

    SOLUTION TREATMENT

    In the solution pretreatment unit, suspended solids are removed from brine, which come from the mining wells. The suspended solids are removed with Filternox® filters. 16 units of Filternox® filters remove particles down to 25 micron. After the whole filtration process, the filtrated brine is stored in the raw brine tanks.

    Filters for Ballast Water Treatment Systems

    New regulations require for almost all types of vessels to implement filtration systems of maximum 50 microns followed by a UV system for disinfection of ballast water. Filternox® engineers developed a new model designed specifically for ballast water treatment.

    As the ballast system requires high flows, and to meet the 50 micron filtration requirement, filtration surface areas have to be large. The technology used in Filternox® ballast water treatment systems provide the optimum surface area for efficient filtration.

    Filternox® also offers models that combine two stage filtration within one unit with automatic self-cleaning of the coarse screen structure integrated into the fine screen body, making it ideal for management of ballast water.

    For a more complete and safer ballast water filtration system, Filternox® can also implement the BMF-TW filter to eliminate larger particles and protect the pump.

    Automotive Industry

    Sprinkler System

    su-testi1Filternox® filters are widely used in the automotive industry as well as in different processes and units of many industrial plants such as iron and steel, paper, textile, plastic and chemistry.

    Automatic Self-Cleaning filters are preferred for water recovery and spray nozzle clogging prevention in the sprinkler system where the vehicles are tested for leakages.

     

    su-testi2The vehicles are contaminated with sand, gravel, silt and other pollutants during the various tests carried out at open-air environment after their production. Following these tests, the vehicles are subjected to a leakage test. For that, the water sprayed on the vehicle is contaminated with pollutants on it and collected in a pool. The water in the pool is fed back to the sprinkler system to provide a continuous circulation.

    These types of contaminants and particles must be removed before they pass to the water sprinkler system in order to prevent clogging at the spray nozzles and also to prevent scratching on the vehicle paint and make the test more efficient.

    Filternox® SPT-WBV-MR model filtration system has a patented design that enables effective filtration of water containing coarse and fine particles. SPT-WBV-MR, which has a double-effect cleaning system with brush and vacuum nozzle, is automatically cleaned from coarse particles on the surface of the screen by brush and then fine particles from the surface of the screen by vacuum nozzle. cleaning.

    Plastics Industry Filters

    Filternox® offers a wide range of filtration solutions in the plastics industry. Plastic Injection Mold Cooling Water, Extrusion Mold Cooling Water, Process Water Filtration are the main usage areas in plastic industry.

    Pollution that may be found in the plastics industry cooling water system is as follows:

    • Pollution that may come from raw water source
    • Plastic particles from the production process
    • Rust and metal particles coming from the cooling water line
    • Contamination from the atmosphere in the cooling tower

    These impurities negatively affect the operation of units such as cooling water lines, stilling basin, cooling towers which cause increase in operating-maintenance costs and low operating efficiency.

    In addition, these impurities cause blockages in the molds beign therefore damaged. This interferes with the cooling required at the desired level (heat transfer) and affect production and product quality seriously. Contamination on the molds causes deformation and scratches on the surfaces of the plastic parts produced, thus reducing surface quality.

    Filternox® filters remove coarse and fine particles from the water source with its automatic backwash cleaning system to secure the line and process.
    Filternox® filters save water by reducing the amount of waste water and, thus reducing operating costs and enabling a more environmentally friendly system.

    Oil Refinery Applications

    Filternox® provides efficient and easy-to-use solutions in the fields of Heat Exchanger Cooling Water and Sea Water Filtration.

    Contaminants in your cooling water cause heat exchangers to get blocked. In this case, filtration is very important because this blockage will cause problems in your system by preventing cooling (heat transfer) at the desired level.

    Filternox® filters filter both coarse and fine particles in your water and prevent clogging problems in the heat exchangers. In this way, you will increase your operating efficiency and reduce your operating and maintenance costs.

    Filternox® filters save water by reducing the amount of waste water you discharge. Thus it reduces your operating costs and enabling you to have a more environmentally friendly system.

    Filternox® filter models suggested for sea water filtration in oil refinery applications have special technology that can perform filtration for both coarse and fine particles in the same filter body. The filters have a double effect cleaning mechanism.(see video) In the first stage cleaning, coarse particles are removed from the drain by sweeping the surface of the screen with the aid of a brush. The second stage cleaning is realized just right after the brush cleaning which fine particles on the screen surface are sucked out of the drain by the help of a vacuum nozzle. The backflush drainage of the brush and nozzle systems are independent from each other. This cleaning process will be selected in two stages or three stages depending on your system pollution.

    Greywater Applications

    In recent years, water has become the biggest global concern due to depletion of water sources and global warming. This issue led people to find alternative solutions to preserve water sources and make benefit from water as much as possible. To reduce the domestic waste water discharged, new approaches have revealed. These new approaches aim to reevaluate domestic waste water by separating streams at the source with stream segregation as black water and greywater. Black water which can be basically defined as toilet wastewater and greywater is any domestic wastewater but toilet wastewater.

    In conventional wastewater management systems, domestic wastewater is collected by a sewer system which mixes less polluted wastewater with the high polluted. This is ending up large investments on both drinking water supply and wastewater treatment systems. In recent years, domestic wastewater has been accepted as a source to be reevaluated.

    Greywater is composed of anything (wash basins, bathtubs, laundry and kitchen sinks) but the toilet wastewater. Greywater is rich in organic matter but less polluted than black water. Greywater can be reused for cleaning, irrigation, toilet flushing and car washing.
    Considering the amount of black water and greywater, 75% of domestic wastewater is composed of greywater.

    Since greywater has no remarkable pollution and has no toilet wastewater inside, it has less amounts of pathogens and low concentrations of nitrogen and phosphorous. Hence, the treatment and the reuse of greywater are easier to apply and cost-friendly.

    How Filternox® Filters are used in Greywater Applications?

    Filternox® filters play a big role in Greywater Applications to remove solid particles like hair, dust, sand, mud and other suspended solids for various applications. For example in drip irrigation systems, tubing has very small drippers. These drippers get clogged very quickly by particles in greywater. In order to achieve a great success in greywater use, drip irrigation filtration is required to prevent clogging of outlets. Filternox® Automatic Self-Cleaning Filters provide solution in this case by removing these solid particles and prolong drip irrigation system’s life.

    Another example, in car washing, it is needed to get rid of the solid particles in the greywater.

    Otherwise these particles scratch the car paint and cause damage on the car surface. Car washing companies prefer Filternox® Self-Cleaning Filters to avoid any damage to their clients’ cars.

    In domestic greywater use like toilet flushing, it is important to prevent clogging in the pipes and prevent accumulation of solid particles in the toilet to avoid bad, unaesthetic view.
