Sea water deep filtration with Filternox NTU Terminator

Sea water deep filtration with Filternox NTU Terminator to improve the inlet quality of UF & RO

We have performed another test with Filternox® NTU Terminator at a customer’s facilities, for one week. They extract seawater where occasionally there is heavy traffic of ships. The test was however carried out during a period with low ship traffic.

Filter 1 with 5 micron filtration level and Filter 2 with 2 micron filtration level were placed before UF and RO to improve working conditions and extend the life of UF and RO systems plus minimising the use of chemicals.

Test Flow Chart 1

Test Flow Chart 2

Filter 1 Drainage Water Filter 1 Drainage Tank

 

As a result of the filtration tests performed, it was observed that inlet and outlet waters appeared relatively clean. The filters performed very efficient deep filtration and the drainage waters from both were significantly dirty, with a high level of turbidity.

 

Filternox® pilot filtration system Water from main filter inlet line and filters 1 and 2 outlet water

 

Filter 1 and Filter 2 drainage water Filter 2 drainage water sample image of particles hold

 

At the outlet of the sea water treatment, turbidity removing efficiency Filternox filters was 41% at the first stage and 68% at the second stage, on average. On the other hand, TSS removing efficiency in a single stage was over 70%.

Using Filternox® NTU Terminator filtration system as pre-filtration before a UF system, we can conclude:

  • The system can filter out peak or high dirt loads that may occur, especially during periods of heavy sea traffic, before they reach UF and RO systems and keep them protected.
  • Performance of UF systems and service lifespan of UF membranes will increase.
  • Thanks to the increase in UF system performance, the dirt load on the RO membranes will decrease and the service life of the RO membranes will also increase.
  • There will be no need to use the cartridge filters after the UF system, before the RO system; or if used, the cartridge life will be much longer.
  • Reduction in the amount of chemicals used in the system.
  • Decrease in maintenance time and expenses.
  • Decrease in the amount of wastewater discharged for the backwashing of UF and RO systems.

Keep your UF and RO systems safe and healthy. Save water and our world!

Is your well water this clean?

Another filtration test has been performed with process well-water at a food company.

After 1 hour of filtration, it was observed that the drainage sample was dark in color and contained a large amount of particles.
Filternox® NTU Terminator is capable of trapping extremely small particles, even smaller than 1 micron.
At the end of this filtration test, Filternox® NTU Terminator decreased the TSS level from 20 ppm to 8 ppm and turbidity from 25 NTU to 3.29 NTU.

Three days after the system was commissioned, the customer wanted to keep the pollutants accumulated in the line by chemical cleaning and remove them from the system. For this reason, a filter bag was placed in the filter drainage outlet at the same time with the chemical cleaning. Within about 3 hours, as can be seen clearly in the pictures, the high amount of pollutants were removed from the drainage through the automatic backwashing of the filter and they were kept in the bag filter. During this cleaning, the pollution was removed from the system with the successive backwashing of the filter and the customer’s system has become fully functional as it should be.

Well water filtration requires technical quality and capability

In general, prominent problems in well water filtration are grouped under three main headings:

  1. With the first start of the pump, heavy pollution comes in and sudden blockage occurs in the filter.
  2. Turbidity in the water.
  3. Iron and manganese in the water.

The solution to the first of these problems is challenging as it requires a special filter with backwash system. Usually a tank is installed after the well. This increases investment cost and adds the need to be cleaned periodically.

Filternox®, has developed solutions to these three problems mentioned above without the need for adding a balance tank.

With the first activation of the pump, all the sand, silt and other organic or inorganic particles accumulated in the well can suddenly enter the filter, cover the surface of the filter screen and block it. In this case, Filternox® patented double cleaning filter is the definite solution. The double cleaning filter discharges first all the coarse and cleanable particles, swept with a brush, via its drainage line. Immediately after this process, the remaining particles left on the screen surface are removed by the vacuum suction system.

 

 

If there is turbidity in the water and this is a problem, then Filternox® NTU Terminator takes over the solution. NTU Terminator incorporates a deep filtration screen specially developed by Filternox R&D division and significantly eliminates turbidity thanks to the adsorption property of this screen.

Thirdly, if there is iron and manganese in the water, since they are dissolved, first, chlorine is added to oxidize these metals to form rust particles. Filternox® NTU Terminator retains these particles within its special screen.

Finally the hardest issue: what should be done if the first and second problems coexist?

Our patented double backwash system Filternox® filter can also be manufactured as NTU Terminator as a special design, to suit the specific needs of your facility or industry.  This way, very poor-quality water coming from the well is rid from particles and turbidity.

At Eskisehir 3rd Regional Directorate Irrigation Project, a large fish reached one of Filternox® automatic backwashing filters that have been in operation since April 2017. This happened in spite of the coarse intake strainer where water is abstracted from the nearby dam. The automatic backwashing system of our filter has discharged the fish through the 2″(DN50) diameter drainage. The purpose of our filters is to remove such large contaminants from the system by means of our internationally patented dual cleaning device (brushes & vacuum nozzles). Otherwise, this kind of large contaminants may remain in the filter, eventually causing mechanical damage. Moreover, they may reach the irrigation system and damage hydrant, counter and other elements.

Filternox® The best patented filter for all surface water irrigation!

Incoming water that looks limpid may not be as clean as you think. Only after 12 minutes of filtration process, drainage water can be 50 times dirtier than the feed water.

The pictures below illustrate a well water filtration application to fill a swimming pool, household use and irrigation. Filternox engineers have developed a compact filtration unit called Filternox® NTU Terminator featuring a 5-micron Filternox® designed screen, extremely effective to improve water quality.

You can reach the desired output quality by using only the Filternox® NTU Terminator for domestic use (well water, public water network, etc.), swimming pools, recreational pools or to extend the life of RO cartridges, where turbid water is filtered and stored before use.

Compared with the incoming water’s dirt load and type of debris, Filternox® NTU Terminator achieves

  • TSS removal is up to 60%
  • NTU removal is up to 80%

These performance indicators can improve with different, tailor-made filter configurations, specific for your water quality.

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.

Fish farms use either sea water or fresh water as a source of water for fish production. Because of the requirement of sufficient fresh water, a water purification system must be integrated in the fish farm.

As well as the supply water being filtered, the water inside the tanks and basins should also be continuously filtered by side stream to maintain the necessary sanitary water conditions.

The complete stainless steel structure of Filternox® automatic self cleaning strainers provide the most convenient and hygienic treatment for the removal of suspended solids and particles for aquafarming with minimal maintenance costs.

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.
