    Interesting to see a rotating disk mechanical filter. Thanks for the post.

    Our club's Treasurer runs a robotics company and built a DIY rotating drum filter. An article about it was in the last issue of KOIUSA.

    nice work

    the difference with this system is especially the volume reduces of the device, in Europe we don't have a lot of place, it is for us a very important point

    It is a pleasure to inform you, I would probably have quite a lot of novelties to present following GAFA in Germany

    GAFA it is the next WE

    maybe we can get someone to import a sieve from Europe that will do more than 4000gph flow rate. I see them in European mags...but one importing them that I have seen.

    Even better...someone in the States make a sieve that will do up to 8000gph with flow rates that vary with screens from 100-500 micron.

    Anyone remember the Mars orbiter that crashed because a navigation error? Apparently, the engineer inadvertently used English units instead of Metric!

    Anyway, the actual recomended maximum flow rate for a Cetus Sieve is 4750 US gph... the original 4000 gph was calculated in Imperial gallons (UK gph). Still nowhere near the 8000 gph MCA would like to see, but well above flow rates typical of a gravity-fed 4" line.

    Albkoi in Germany constructs this type of filter to order
