FilterSmart is simply an EchoSmart interface level analyzer that incorporates a turbidity sensor but is configured to the unique requirements of filter applications. Built on the EchoSmart digital technology platform, FilterSmart has a different user interface and outputs results that are specific to gravity filters, namely media level and turbidity.
The FilterSmart sensor is located in the top of a gravity filter just below the top of the wash trough. During a backwash, the ultrasonic sensor tracks the level of the media and the turbidity sensor measures how clean or dirty the wash water is as it flows into the wash trough. These two simple measurements produce trends that together provide an extremely accurate profile of the backwash, allowing the operator to ‘’see’’ into the process like never before.
FilterSmart virtually eliminates media loss and mud ball formation and leads to better filter health and efficiency.
