Self-Cleaning Filters – Cut Costs and Improve Filtration
Croft Filters Ltd are a leading UK manufacturer of over 32 years who specialises in manufacturing customised filtration solutions and supplying Self-Cleaning filters. The Company supplies a range of market sectors that including the Food and Beverage Industries.
In 2013 Croft became distributers for HiFlux Filtration A/S, a Danish manufacturer backed with 50 years experience within the filtration industry.

With different models available for a wide range of applications such as: Cooling, Refining and Filtering, the Self-Cleaners use a plunger or a series of scrapers to remove waste caught on the filter element inside the process. This improves the flow through the filter and the lifetime of the element. The captured particles are then be ejected from the system without the need to stop the process or change the element, saving on downtime within the system.
Croft and HiFlux have supplied a range of different customers; some have used the Self-Cleaning units to filter dairy, specifically melted cheese; whilst other Customers have used the units to process Whey and chocolate.

Filtering to sizes ranging between 30-1000 micron, the Self Cleaning filters are available with an electronically automated, a pneumatically operated control system or a manual system in order to operate the Cleaning cycle.
