Solid – Liquid Separator Filters
Liquid enters the unit tangentially creating a centrifugal flow, which is accelerated by a special top inlet construction. The tangential inlet and the special construction in the top dome of the separator gives an optimal centrifugal action, which is required to achieve efficient and continuous separation.
Centrifugal force moves particles to the sides of the separator chamber. Solids slowly drop along the sides to the quiet collection chamber. Cleaned liquid is drawn up through the vortex and leaves the separator by the top outlet. Solids are either periodically or continuously purged from the collection chamber.Read more

- Many sizes available to provide broad range of flow rates (upto several hundred m3/hr)
- Can be supplied inline or sideline
- Larger separators can be mounted at 25o to limit installation height
- Can be fitted with optional inspection port
- Can be manufactured from a variety of materials to enable use in broad range of applications
Bespoke Stainless Steel Mesh Filters
Allied Filter Systems Ltd manufactures bespoke filters from stainless steel woven wire mesh or perforated plate. Example products include stainless steel mesh panels, filter baskets and discs cut to size. All items are precision manufactured to be dimensionally accurate and can be produced in small volumes as well as in larger batches. Finished articles range in size from just a few centimetres to several metres.
IBF Series Strainers (Inline Basket Filters)
IBF series fabricated strainers are the ideal solution for removing solid particles from a liquid stream. Applications include protection from debris of pumps, meters, valves, nozzles and heat exchangers. The IBF series features inline connections, enabling easy pipeline installation. Standard connection sizes are 1” to 12” flanged (ANSI or DN), with bigger vessels available on request. Fabricated strainers have a bolted lid fitted with a lifting handle and ½” vent valve.
Self Cleaning Filters
The liquid flows from the outside to the inside of a wedge wire screen and leaves the filter housing through the higher placed outlet. A seal is located between the lower placed inlet and the upper outlet, limiting any cross contamination between lower (dirty) side and upper (clean) side. Particles are retained on the outside of the screen and are continuously removed from the filter element by a flexible scraper blade. The contaminants are directed to the sump by a laminar flow in the filter and collected in the bottom section of the filter housing.
