Commercial & Industrial Water Treatment

Side Stream Filtration

Balba Technologies supply a range of side stream filter systems which incorporate the Viking series of cyclone separators, which are ideal for removing heavy particles with a specific gravity in the range 2.2 to 2.8. They are particularly well suited for the removal of rust and corrosion products and are widely used for cleaning closed circuit heating systems, cooling water circuits and other systems susceptible to solids ingress.

How it Works

Liquid enters the unit tangential,
which creates a centrifugal flow


A special top inlet construction
accelerates the centrifugal flow


Centrifugal force moves particles
to the sides of the separator chamber


Solids slowly drop along the sides to
the quiet collection chamber


Cleaned liquid is drawn up through the
vortex and leaves the separator by the
top outlet


Solids are either periodically or
continuously purged from the collection
chamber

Side Stream Filtration


Systems can be installed inline or in a side stream and our standard range will treat flows from 2.0 to 3000 m3/hr

Balba Technologies offer standard ranges and custom built filtration systems to suit your requirements. The Viking ranges are offered with auto purge for the removal of solids and a continuous purge system with dirt collection and water recovery specifically designed for systems where even small water loss is not acceptable

  • Our BMS option allows pumped systems to be linked back to the main control centre.
  • The Viking units are available in carbon steel or stainless steel.
  • Removal of 98% of solids with a specific gravity of 2.4
