Hydrotech Disc Filter

The Hydrotech disc filter is a mechanical and self-cleaning filter that offers a large filter area in a small physical space.

How it Works

The water to be treated flows by gravity into the filter segments from the center drum. Solids catch on the inside of the filter panels mounted on the two sides of the disc segments. As the solids catch on the inside of the filter media impeding the flow of water through the disc, the water level inside the discs begin to rise, triggering a level sensor to start the disc rotation and a backwash cycle begins. High pressure rinse water washes the solids off the filter media into the solids collection trough.

Hydrotech offers several different series of disc filters, ensuring you can find the features that are just right for your aquaculture system, whether it is lower weight and greater filter area, the patented moving backwash spray header, quick-access panels, and more.
