The backwash filter pureliQ:RD is designed for the filtration of drinking and industrial water. It may be used in the pressure as well as in the negative pressure range. A backwash, however, can only be performed if the filter is used in the pressure range. Solid substances, such as rust flakes or sand grains, may cause serious corrosion damage to pipes and fittings. The backwash filter pureliQ:RD makes sure that it does not come to that. It represents the important first stage of water treatment and effectively protects water installations in households, trade and industry from malfunctions and corrosion damage.
The unfiltered drinking water flows into the filter from the inlet side and then from the outside in through the filter element and to the pure water outlet.
Depending on the filter element, foreign particles the size of > 100 µm (DVGW version) are thus retained.
Our new backwash filter pureliQ:RD ensures reliable filtration day for day thanks to the manually operated backwash that has to take place every 6 months. During the backwash process, the water flows through the filter element in the reverse direction. The particles retained in the filter are washed out via an outlet, together with the backwash water.
In addition, the pureliQ:RD version features a pressure reducer. The backwash filter pureliQ:RD is designed according to the stipulations of DIN EN 13443-1 and intended for installation into the drinking water pipe according to DIN EN 806-2 (installation immediately downstream of the water meter).
Please observe local installation directives, general guidelines and technical specifications.
The installation site must be frost-proof and ensure the filter’s protection from chemicals, dyes, solvents, vapours and direct sunlight.
The installation site must be easily accessible for maintenance purposes.
