NEW! AquaPLC® Intelligent™ Controls (IC)

Intelligent™ Controls technology, licensed exclusively to Integrated Aqua Systems, maximizes the capacity of HEX drum filters to offer the most efficient and economical operation available on the market today. With IAS’ new AquaPLC® for Intelligent™ Drum Filter Controls (IC), HEX models F2 filters and larger can be set-up and programmed for economical use by responding dynamically to changes in TSS loading. Intelligent™ Drum Filter Controls allow the buildup of filter cake on HEX microscreen drum screens, which will allow finer solids capture and also prolong intervals between backwash events. Intelligent controls minimize backwash water usage, electrical consumption.
