Abstract: Clean water is a basic need of every individual. Today in numerous cities of India large number of waste water is produced. Such waste water is polluting natural water bodies like rivers, lakes etc. Hence waste water filtration & waters final purification is need of hour. In conventional type of filters, when strainer gets clogged we have to manually clean it, which takes time & filtration processes stops during cleaning process. While in ‘Self-Cleaning Basket Strainer’ when strainer gets clogged, a pressure difference is created between inlet & outlet nozzle, which is sensed by the differential pressure gauges. A differential pressure gauge activates backwash assembly which automatically cleans the strainer. Hence ‘Self-Cleaning Basket Strainer’ is used to save cleaning time & it automates the filtering process.
