The Scanaway assembly consists of a suction-scanner, a hollow pipe with suction nozzles, that is facing the inner side of the screen.
Outside the filter a handle is connected to the “suction” scanner, allowing turning the scanner in a spiral movement so it rotates inside the screen surface without touching the screen mesh. Opening the exhaust valve at the filter lid creates low pressure conditions in the suction scanner, which cause the scanner nozzles to suck-in the dirt particles from the screen surface and expel the dislodged particles out through the exhaust valve. Scanning is done during the filtration process without having to stop the flow of process water through the filter.
