Pool filtration world first from Hyclor Commercial

Pool filtration world first from Hyclor Commercial
May 3, 2021

After two years of extensive testing, Granville Harris of Hyclor Commercial has announced a world first for commercial filtration.

Harris explains “two years ago, we floated the idea of making commercial sized filters from Food Grade Poly.

“Being told from many sectors that it couldn’t be done just made us even more determined and finding an engineer in the UK with more than 20 years experience in this material eventually led to success.”

Mindful that “we needed the filter to withstand the exacting expectations of Australian Standards and harsh conditions of climate”, Harris advised “after much testing, have now produced a filter that not only is engineered to 400kpa deadhead pressure but is pulse tested to last beyond 30 years with minimal maintenance”.

Outlining why the filter uses ‘food grade’ material, Harris explained this choice was made because

Hyclor wanted to produce a filter for aquaculture that didn’t require expensive vinyl-ester lining to protect the animals being grown. As a result, pure, Food Grade material was the answer.

Harris added “pure product also comes with the advantage of saving on maintenance, as there is no need for expensive relining throughout its life, which translates to less down time - another saving.

“The design also has the advantage of being able to take standard bed or deep bed depths without change.

“These benefits not only work for aquaculture but are equally relevant in the swimming pool industry.”

Being climate care conscious, the filter is also designed with environmental considerations in

mind and the pure food grade poly is fully recyclable at end of life, unlike traditional fibreglass filters that end up as non-degradable land fill.

Harris continued “when married to our Climate Care Certified, K+ Filter Media, it’s the ideal combination for efficient and effective filtration that offers significant savings on power costs and thousands of litres of water - something that continues to be a valuable but mis-managed resource in Australia and requires saving whenever possible.”

The filter is immediately available in K+ or Standard Media models in 1200mm diameter size but the complete model range will shortly extend from 620mm through to 2500mm when fully compiled.
