A Tekleen water filter not only saves you time and money replacing cartridges and bags by automating the cleaning cycle, but is also more advanced and cost-effective than other water filter options available. Below is a comparison of a Tekleen water filter with a separator / hydrocyclone filter.
|Tekleen Automatic Filter||Separator / Hydrocyclone Filter|
|Positive Filtration||Physical - Stops particulates larger than mesh opening and separates the dirty side from the clean side of the filter (inlet from outlet).||There is no true barrier between the inlet and the outlet of the filter. Due to flow changes, dirt will pass through. Result: dirt in system and plugged spray nozzles.|
|Absolute Filtration||Focused backwash. Cleans the entire screen area from impurities. 100% efficient in particulate removal.||Not 100% absolute filtration. It is "separation" and is determined by the velocity of the water and dirt load.|
|Organic Matter||Screen filter will remove 100% of all organic matter from the water including pulp down to 10µ.||Will not remove organic matter since it is lighter than water.|
|Inorganic Matter||Screen filter will remove 100% of all inorganic particulates down to 10µ.||Can remove only up to 98% of dirt load if the dirt is 75µ and larger. Result: clogged spray nozzles.|
|Pressure Usage||Uses approximately 2-3 psi.||Uses approximately 10-15 psi.|
