The Mecana AquaDiamond is a unique combination of two proven technologies: Traveling Bridge Sand Filter and PCMF. The Mecana AquaDiamond has two to three times the hydraulic capacity of Traveling Bridge sand filters with the same footprint. This technology offers the same advantages as the Mecana Disk Filters. It contains vertically diamond sidewalls and a movable platform.
How Mecana AquaDiamond® works
Operation of the Mecana AquaDiamond is identical to Disk Filters. The water flows through the fully submerged filter structure from the outside to the inside, passing the pile layer and retaining the solids. Filtrate passes through the diamond grid profile and flows over the rising chamber and through the outlet weir. For filter cleaning, the platform runs along the filter surface. The cleaning system touches the filter medium directly and the solids are removed. The platform only moves during filter cleaning. The entire filter surface is cleaned within one cleaning cycle. Suspended solids are intermittently removed from the bottom of the filter.
