The Alfa Laval automatic lube oil filter (formerly called the Moatti Filter) is designed to operate for an average of two years, or 12,000 hours, between services. Continuous back-flushing ensures constant pressure and long intervals between inspections.
Alfa Laval automatic filters offer considerable man-hour savings due to their high level of reliability and the fact that they require virtually no supervision.
The Alfa Laval automatic filter is continuously back-flushed with clean oil, column-by-column, ensuring constant pressure in the lube oil system. There are no pressure drops during back-flushing. Contaminants are effectively flushed away from the mesh which stays clean for thousands of operating hours. Manual cleaning is reduced to an absolute minimum.
