Mechanically cleaned filters

Eaton’s range of mechanically cleaned filters, the MCF 824 Series, dramatically reduces product loss, requires minimal operator intervention and improves flow consistency. The MCF features an innovative design driven by a magnetically coupled cleaning disc. Designed specifically for the most challenging process liquids and conditions, it features the fastest cleaning action of the mechanically cleaned family.

Eaton’s disc cleaned filter range, the DCF Series, operates at a consistently low differential pressure and delivers simple, reliable operation in which a low initial investment is a key driving factor.

Mechanically cleaned strainers

Eaton’s range of mechanically cleaned strainers, the new patented High Flow MCS Series, is engineered to help conserve valuable process water while protecting costly equipment from debris. This new strainer design offers minimal purge volumes in fresh water applications, which saves on the cost of make up liquids and heating energy.

Automatic self-cleaning strainers

The Eaton automatic self-cleaning strainer is a motorized strainer designed for the continuous removal of entrained solids from liquids in pipeline systems. It has performed successfully in industrial, process water, and wastewater applications.
