We have developed unique design S.S. wire-mesh cleanable filter. The compact design filter has advantage of in built cleaning. The filter can supply for the flow rate of 1000 M3/hr for water. In built backwash design is effective up to pore size of 25 micron. The Compact design has its own advantage of very high filtration area, which gives longer service life of filter. This can be given as a very good pre filter- prior to disposable cartridge filters to enhance the life of cartridge.
