Time Tested Mechanical Filtration with Drum Screens
Water containing solids enters the rotary drum in the front of the system. Water passes through a micro-mesh filter, which filters out solids. As the mesh filter becomes increasingly loaded with solids, the water level within the drum increases to the point that it triggers the cleaning process. As the drum starts to rotate, spray-bar nozzles scour the mesh filter with high-pressure water, returning the screen to its original permeability. This design allows the internal water level to drop and stop the cleaning process. Solids are collected in a trough and transported away from the drum screen filter.
DSF Series™ Drum Screen Filters
Our DSF Series™ drum screen filters follows the simple, robust and time-tested principles of drum screen filter operation. Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems offers a wide range of models, sizes and micron ratings to meet the needs of nearly any aquaculture application. PC models are installed directly into a concrete water channel. CE models offer integrated tanks and inlet/outlet ports for connecting directly to pipes. Hybrid models with pipe inlet ports and channel outlets feature an inlet port for connecting directly to pipes, while water leaves the filter by pouring into a channel.Learn more

PR Aqua RotoFilter™ Drum Filter
Rotary microscreen drum filters are ideal for the removal of fine suspended solids in recirculating systems in zoos, aquariums, greenhouses, aquaculture systems and wastewater treatment plants. Designed with the needs of the commercial operator in mind, the filters are inexpensive to operate. Rotofilters are either fully enclosed or frame mounted. Flow rate capacities range from 50 to 7,000 gpm (11 to 1590 M3/HR) and micron ratings from 11–80. Custom sizes are available upon request.
