Efficiency of a Hydrotech Drumfilter as Particle Separator in a recirculated system
The efficiency of Hydrotech´s filters in aquaculture applications are proven in several tests. However, different mesh sizes have not been emphasised enough. One of the most extensive investigations has now been carried out at DIFTA in Denmark in a recirculated eel farm as part of a "blue" label project supported by the Commission of the European Union (Fair CT-9158).
HYDROTECH Saving Energy on Rinse Water System
In 1997 a Hydrotech Drumfilter model HDF2007-2S was installed at a trout farm in Denmark. The Drumfilter was installed with a standard control box for high level control of a rinse water system flow averaging approximately 350 l/s filtration at 60 microns. Inlet water quality at this location is generally very high, but in the Spring and Fall the levels of suspended solids increase considerably, causing increased downstream loading on the Drumfilter.
WMT's Deluxe Belt Feeder Conversion Kits
WMT's Deluxe Belt Feeder Conversion Kits employs superior belt material! Many of our customers informed us that over time old belt material has a tendency to develop a "memory"; The belt stands up after being rolled up tight on the dowel all year. When spring arrives and only small amounts of feed are required to feed fry, this belt problem is a nuisance to fish culturalists.
