The automatic back-flush filter AutoFilt® RF3 is a self-cleaning system for extracting particles from low-viscosity fluids. In process technology, the automatic back-flushing filter, AutoFilt® RF3 series, has been highly successful.

Its flow-optimized design is impressive. It has the further advantage of conical, slotted tube filter elements in stainless steel which provide consistent flow characteristics, optimum filtration and unbeatable "ideal" filtration and back-flushing characteristics.

Thanks to automatic back-flushing, the filter is cleaned independently without interrupting the ongoing filter operation. The HYDAC AutoFilt® RF3 is therefore very low-maintenance. Its robust design, specially developed for retrofitting, makes installation in both existing and new systems fast and cost-effective. Numerous operators of power stations, district heating, sewage treatment plants and manufacturing plants have relied on this dependable filter for many years.
