1. Overview

TEQUATIC PLUS Fine Particle Filter

Clean Filtration Technologies | 2014

1.1 About the TEQUATIC PLUS Fine Particle Filter


The TEQUATIC PLUS fine particle filter, with its innovative and patented design,
combines the power of continuously cleaning, cross-flow filtration with centrifugal
separation and solids collection into one device. The TEQUATIC PLUS filter is designed
to process a wide range of difficult-to-treat feedwaters with very high or highly
variable total suspended solids (TSS). It provides a cost-effective, reliable solution to
traditional filtration technologies, facilitating high uptime, consistent performance
and a smaller footprint. A smaller footprint can be achieved, for example, via high
water recovery (typically >99%), less disposal of consumables, less space required and
low to no chemical use.
The TEQUATIC PLUS filter is ideal:
In applications ranging from nonpotable industrial wastewater treatment and reuse
(such as food and beverage, pulp and paper, and textiles and laundry), to produced
water for oil and gas, to power generation
As a primary filter, a prefilter for ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO), and
as a postfilter following water reuse technologies like moving bed bioreactor (MBBR)
and dissolved air flotation (DAF)
As an alternative, or a complement, to traditional filtration systems
Key components of the technology include:
Self-propelled cleaning assembly (non-motorized)
Cross-flow filtration of lighter solids
Solids collection chamber that removes particles in real time within
the recirculation loop
Centrifugal separation for heavy particle removal
The TEQUATIC PLUS fine particle filter combines the capabilities of many filtration
technologies into one unit. The filter tolerates very high and highly variable TSS of up
to 10,000 mg/L. Typical uptimes are >99% due to continuous filtrate and minimal filter
fouling. The high uptime can result in low operational expense.

TEQUATIC PLUS Fine Particle Filter

1.2 Filter Process


1. Feedwater enters the unit. Centrifugal force pushes heavy particles outward. Lighter solids are removed by cross-flow filtration.
Filtered water exits as filtrate.
2. The vortex chamber houses the filter unit, which continuously cleans the filter. Filter cut-offs are from 1050 m. Pressure drop
across the filter is typically <1 psi.
3. Solids enter the recirculation and solids collection chamber. Other particles flow into the recirculation line.
4. Solids settle at the bottom in the collection chamber and are purged as concentrate for disposal or further processing. Unit
recovery is typically >99%, minimizing disposal volumes.

1.3 General Safety


Do:
Read, understand and follow every part of this document. Failure to take every precaution may void the warranty and could
result in equipment damage.
Install in an area where water leakage resulting from vessel or piping malfunction will not damage sensitive equipment, such as
electronic components.
Verify all seals and internal components are properly installed.
Wear personal protective equipment (PPE). Steel-toed shoes, safety glasses and long sleeves are recommended as minimum PPE
during installation, operation and maintenance of the TEQUATIC PLUS filter. Additional PPE may be required depending upon
application environment and materials being used.
Avoid electrical hazards and damage to equipment. Minimize splashing and water leaks.
Always open and close valves gradually. Auto actuated valves should open and close in such a way as to minimize water hammer.
Ground liquid and housing according to code applicable to the material being used.
Install proper safety devices in pipes and equipment carrying hot water to avoid thermal burns.
Do Not:
Operate at pressures and temperatures in excess of the specified rating.
Operate without verifying filter assembly and cleaning assembly are properly installed.
Operate or start up system until all air is expelled from the housing and piping.
Operate or start up system with filtrate line open. This will result in premature plugging of the filter membrane.
Tolerate leaks.
Operate system without required and calibrated instrumentation. Refer to Filter Details section for more information.
Over-tighten swing bolts when securing lid. Do not exceed 80 ft-lb of torque.
Allow force in excess of 8 lb to be applied laterally to any connection on the TEQUATIC PLUS filter housing.

Normal: In normal operation, raw water can be pumped to parallel TEQUATIC Plus filters, with each filter connected as a manifold to the feed line. As filtrate is being produced, each individual filter will go into Zero DP Clean and Purge cycles as set up in the
controls on a time basis. Additional concentrate flow can be sent back to the raw water tank. This will provide higher flow at the
inlet and higher cleaning assembly rotational speed around the filter. It also allows the solids concentration to reach a steady state
vs. continually concentrating until purged.
Standby: If filtrate is no longer needed for the process (for example, filtrate tank is full or raw water tank is low), the feed pump
can continue to run. (Individual recirculation pumps should also continue to run.) With the individual auto actuated filtrate valves
closed, raw water will be pumped through the continuous concentrate line back to the raw water tank.
Shutdown: Shut down the system for maintenance or troubleshooting. Maintenance includes replacement of filter and cleaning
assembly. Avoid shutting down the system for brief disruptions in the process. Instead, operate in standby mode with the existing
water recirculating back to the raw water tank or with just the recirculation pumps running.
Flushing (Closed Loop): Similar to Standby mode, a flush system is recommended for processes where solids tend to build up on
the cleaning assembly or internal components in the housing or system. Flushing diverts filtered water through the system, which
can be sent back to the raw water source.
Cleaning (Open Loop with Purge): Clean in Place (CIP) loops are recommended for processes where solids tend to build up on
the cleaning assembly or internal components in the housing or system. Cleaning diverts filtered water through the system and
can be combined with chemical dosing to more effectively remove particle build-up. The chemically dosed filtered water can be
recirculated internally and periodically flushed to drain.

CUSTOMER SPECIFIC PROGRAMMING

The EPPHS sensors provide one digital output that is normally OFF and turns ON when a magnetic field is present. Note that
OUTPUT ON means LOW for NPN sensors and HIGH for PNP sensors. The EPPHS is a programmable Hall Effect sensor which will
trigger from either magnetic pole at the programmed gap.
The distance between the sensor face and either pole of a magnet that operates the switch (turns the output transistor on) is referred to
as the 'Operate Air Gap'. This gap is determined by looking at the magnet's flux density vs. air gap curve. The distance that produces
the magnetic field equal to or less than 'Release Point' specified on this sheet is the Release air gap. The must operate air gap is the
distance at which the magnet produces a field equal to the MAX operate point of the Hall switch. The must release gap is the distance
the at which the magnet produces a field equal to the MIN release point. Note that magnets produce weaker fields as the temperature
increases.
In addition to the EPPHS, we offer a variety of South Pole and Either pole Hall Effect and Magnetoresistive sensors including multiple
programmable sensors, North and South Pole output sensors, latching sensors, and sensors with speed/count and direction outputs.
Check our website or contact us to discuss all of our magnetic speed, count, and position detection sensors.

3.3 Critical Measurements


There are two critical measurements needed to monitor operation of the TEQUATIC PLUS filter.
Differential Pressure is measured across the filter and is used to determine several operating parameters, including filtrate
flow rate and frequency of Zero DP Cleans. The TEQUATIC PLUS filter operates at low differential pressures with typical values
ranging from 0.25 to 0.45 psi. These lower pressure values should remain relatively stable. Higher differential pressures indicate
that the filter is being fouled with suspended particles. If the differential pressure does not decrease after closing the filtrate
valve, this could indicate that the cleaning assembly or filter needs to be replaced or cleaned. If the cleaning assembly and filter
are relatively new but the system experiences frequent high differential pressure events, this is most likely due to nonoptimal
operating conditions. The filtrate flow should be decreased to provide the highest flow at a low and stable differential pressure.
Cleaning Assembly Rotational Speed (rpm) is measured with a magnetic sensor that picks up a signal from a magnet that is
installed in the cleaning assembly. This measurement verifies that the cleaning assembly is spinning. It is important to confirm
that the rotational speed is within the specified range. The rotational speed of the cleaning assembly should remain stable
and be within the speed ranges described in the Startup and Operation section. Higher speeds could indicate that the cleaning
assembly is worn and not making sufficient contact with the filter. If this occurs, the cleaning assembly should be replaced.
Lower speeds are most likely caused by insufficient flow or velocity at the inlet of the TEQUATIC PLUS filter.
Depending on the application, additional instrumentation to measure parameters like temperature, flow, pressure, TSS
and turbidity should be considered. The TEQUATIC PLUS filter is used in a wide variety of industrial applications as either
pretreatment to other processes or as stand-alone filtration. In a pretreatment design, using the minimum number of critical
measurements is most cost-effective and easiest to integrate. For a stand-alone application, additional measurements might be
necessary to adequately evaluate system performance.

4.4 Securing Housing Lid


1. Make sure the housing seal of the TEQUATIC PLUS filter is clean, lubricated with silicone or white grease and properly
positioned in the seal groove of the lid before securing the lid.
2. Using the alignment pins, lower lid and hand-tighten swing bolts (Figure 30).
3. Tighten swing bolts first to approximately 40 ft-lb of torque at opposite ends of the circular face. For example, assuming the first
one is at the 1 position, tighten in the following order: (1, 2), (3, 4) etc., as shown in Figure 30.
4. Following the same order, tighten the swing bolts to approximately 80 ft-lb of torque. To avoid damaging the housing, do not
exceed 80 ft-lb.

4.5 Installing Piping and Recirculation Pump Connections


1. All connections use IPS groove (Victaulic) style couplings (not included). Always
lubricate clamping seals with silicone or white grease.
2. Connect a pressurized water source to the inlet feed connection of the TEQUATIC
PLUS filter. Use flexible lines that can be easily removed for future maintenance.
Inlet pressure should not exceed 100 psi. Always open valves slowly. Recommended:
Feedwater should be regulated to provide constant pressure (either with a variable
frequency motor drive or with a mechanical pressure regulator).
3. Connect the filtrate line to a product storage tank or a downstream process. Use
flexible lines that can be easily removed for future maintenance. Connect in such
a way as to minimize static back pressure (2 psi). Avoid static filtrate-side back
pressure at all times.
4. Connect the recirculation line back into the feed line and tee into the feed just
upstream of the inlet connection (Figure 31).

Example of Victaulic Coupling

Important
Do not have more than 2 psi
back pressure across the filter.
Avoid static filtrate-side back
pressure at all times.

5. Connect the concentrate purge line to an open drain to prevent back pressure. In
some applications, the concentrate can be connected back to the source water to
increase system water recovery.
6. Make sure that the installation location allows for access to all swing bolts and takes
into consideration maintenance requirements, such as space for taking the lid on and
off (or using a lifting device to remove the lid) and installing replacement components.
7. Recommended: Use flexible hose connections to and from the TEQUATIC PLUS filter.
Do not install any rigid piping connections to the housing.
8. Connections to the TEQUATIC PLUS filter have a 0.030-inch tolerance for alignment.
9. Design interconnecting pipe to include piping supports. Support interconnecting
piping so that it is self-supporting. To avoid damaging the housing or connections, the
total weight of piping run and fittings supported by the housing should not exceed 5 lb.
43

Important
Piping must be independently
supported.
Do not exceed 5 lb load on the
housing.

4.7 Installing Auto Actuated Valves


1. Install auto actuated valves (not included) in the filtrate and concentrate lines. See Figure 3.
2. Install the valves as close to the connection point as possible.
3. Valve material should be compatible with fluid that it will contact (i.e. aggressive industrial water sources).
4. Recommended: Use a motor-actuated valve, not a solenoid valve. A motor-actuated valve will open and close
slower than a solenoid valve. This will help minimize water hammer.

4.8 Installing Manual Valves


1. A diaphragm valve should be installed close to the filtrate connection point to control flow. See Figure 3.
2. A check valve must be installed on the filtrate line to prevent backflow.
3. If the recirculation pump is installed to pressurize the feed, a diaphragm valve should be installed to regulate the recirculation
flow. Install the valve close to the recirculation connection point.
4. A manual drain valve should be installed on the concentrate line.
5. Air relief valves should be installed at high points in the system such as the differential pressure input ports.
Note: No valves are included.

5.1 Startup and Operation


1. Make sure filtrate and concentrate lines are closed.
2. Fill system with water. Purge air out of the system by opening the air relief valve.
3. Once all air is expelled from the system, run the system in Zero DP Clean mode.
Filtrate valve is closed, concentrate purge valve is closed and recirculation pump is on.

5. Monitor the differential pressure and slowly open filtrate valve, which will allow
feedwater to flow into the system. System is now in Normal mode. The filtrate line
is open and producing water, the recirculation pump is on and the concentrate
purge valve is closed.
6. Verify differential pressure is not above specified range. Typical initial differential
pressure is between 0.25 and 0.45 psi.

49

Important
Perform Zero DP Clean combined
with purges if the differential
pressure exceeds 2.5 psi. If frequent
high differential pressure events
occur, reduce filtrate flow.
Operating with the cleaning
assembly rotational speed outside
of the specified range can result in
damage to the equipment, premature
failure or performance loss.
Operating with differential pressures
above the specified range can result in
damage to the equipment, premature
failure, or performance loss.
Do not start producing filtrate until
the cleaning assembly rotational
speed is verified.
Producing filtrate without proper
cleaning assembly rotation will result
in premature failure.

TEQUATIC PLUS Fine Particle Filter

Clean Filtration Technologies | 2014

NOTES: Periodically purge the concentrate on a time basis (for example every 5 to 15 min for approximately 5 s). This is a
momentary opening and closing of the concentrate auto actuated valve. During the purge, a volume of water in the housing will
be displaced depending on the model in use (F-50 = 12 gal, F-75 = 812 gal, F-150 = 7090 gal).
If the feedwater has problematic or high concentration of solids, a continuous concentrate purge is recommended. The continuous
flow can return back to the feedwater tank. This will create a steady-state concentration within the housing and increase cleaning
assembly rotational speed (rpm).
If a continuous concentrate purge is implemented, make sure the continuous concentrate pipeline connects to the feedwater tank
at a point higher than the feedwater inlet and that the feedwater tank level is always higher than the feedwater inlet. If this is not
possible, an additional auto actuated valve will need to be installed on the continuous concentrate line and will close if there is no
feedwater being supplied to the system (Figure 6).
Perform periodic Zero DP Cleans on a time basis (for example every 1 to 3 h for approximately 60 s).
To prevent potential solids build-up inside the unit, it is recommended to keep the water moving through the system. Avoid
system shutdowns except in cases of filter replacement or maintenance. When the process does not require filtrate, run the system
in STANDBY mode where the recirculation pump continues to run and optionally the feed pump can continue to run with water
purging through the unit and returning to the feed source tank.
If the feedwater has problematic or high concentration of solids, combine Zero DP Clean and Concentrate Purges periodically into
one step so the filter is being cleaned while concentrate is being purged at the same time. The Concentrate Purge should occur at the
beginning of the Zero DP Clean cycle. Extending Concentrate Purge durations and Zero DP Clean durations will help clean the screen.

5.2 Data Logging


1. Keep a log of the system operation. An example is shown in Figure 35.
2. After initial startup, data should be collected several times a day to verify the
system is operating as intended.
3. If there are any outstanding fluctuations in the initial performance, such as
unstable or rising differential pressure, operating conditions or system design
should be adjusted (i.e. lowering the filtrate flow rate) until system stabilizes and
can run continuously.
4. Once optimum operating conditions are established, data should continue to be
collected at least once per day.
