Reliable Water Filtration
Hellan’s self-cleaning, tier-one quality products provide the most reliable water filtration available. Filtration down to the 100-micron level is available.
Instead of trapping solids in a basket that must be removed for cleanouts, the unique design of Hellan strainers remove solids from the water flow without the need to stop the flow or disassemble the unit. Water passes into a strainer and through a screen, while a deflector rib protects against large objects; the screened water flows through for use in the fire protection system. A manually-rotating or motor-actuated wheel moves the screen against a special scraper which deposits debris in the sump where it can be removed during periodic flushing operations.
Hellan Strainer products are ideal for not just fire protection systems, but also industrial applications, hydroelectric dams and power generators, irrigation systems—any application where debris large and small must be removed from large volumes of water.
