Waterco has produced a filtration device that is capable of saving water and reducing filter maintenance.
The MultiCyclone works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration. There are no moving parts to wear and tear, and no filter media to clean or replace.
Incoming water is guided by a diverter plate so that it enters multiple hydro cyclones tangentially, generating a strong centrifugal effect.
This spins the sediment out to the hydro cyclone’s wall and then spirals it down to the sediment sump, while the cleansed water spirals upwards.
The accumulation of sediment can be visibly monitored through the MultiCylcone’s clear sediment sump. The MultiCyclone is cleaned by simply opening the purge valve. Only 15 litres of water is discharged to clean the MultiCyclone of sediment.
The MultiCyclone is ideal as a pre-filter to extend the life of your existing filter. The MultiCyclone will filter out up to 80% of the incoming sediment from your swimming pool.
Reduce backwash frequency
MultiCyclone + Sand (granular) filter = Reduction in backwash frequency + Extends the life of the filter media
Reduce filter cartridge maintenance
MultiCyclone + Cartridge filter = Reduction in cleaning frequency + Extends the life of the filter cartridge
The MultiCyclone works together with a sand, cartridge or DE filter to polish the water.
The MultiCyclone allows the installation of finer filtration systems, such as cartridge filters with finer cartridges and the sand filters with finer filter media. Finer filtration systems can be installed without the burden of extra maintenance.
The pool water ends up clearer with less upkeep.
The MultiCyclone can be easily retrofitted between the pump and existing filter. The existing filter can also be upgraded with finer filter media, such as zeoplus and garnet or a finer filter cartridge.
DE Powder tests on the MultiCyclone.
DE powder was fed to the MultiCyclone and amount of captured DE powder was measured at various flow rates. The graph illustrates that the MultiCyclone is capable of capturing 60% of DE powder at 40 litres per minute and up to 80% at 350 litres per minute.
The MutliCyclone is under world-wide patent pending and is due for release in September.
