The Cricketfilter technology has been developed to separate solid particles from a liquid in such a way that the solid particles can be discharged if dry matter or a slury. Liquid losses are kept to an absolut minimum.

  • Side outlet, ensuring a completely drainable septum.
  • Improve safety by reducing the use of bag filters.
  • The risk when opening bag filter housings is eliminated. 
  • Space saving through an excellent surface/volume ratio because of unique Cricket element design.
  • Improved cloth mounting thanks to use of the proven Cricket type I element construction.
  • Easy to connect several filters, saving space and investment.
  • Easy to automate, therefore low maintenance required.
  • Very high cleanability due to less internal parts.
