The filter is removing the particles from the seawater during intake. It is therefore only in use during ballasting. The filter screen is 40μm. The filter has a self-cleaning function by reversing the flow direction and flushing the untreated water back into the sea.

Optimarin offers three different 40 micron filters:

  • FilterSafe basket type
  • Boll & Kirch candle type
  • Filtrex basket type filter
  • All three filter types have automatic back flushing and are self-cleaning.

Key features include:

  • Removes large particles and organisms
  • Low pressure loss of only 0.1 – 0.5 BAR
  • Horizontal or vertical installation
  • Bypassed during de-ballasting
