Correct disassembly of a BOLLFILTER Automatic Backflushing Filter Type 6.18

Through regular contact with our customers/operators we often find that BOLLFILTERS Automatic Type 6.18/6.19 are taken apart in a way which can cause internal damage.

Through regular contact with our customers/operators we often find that 6.18/6.19 filters are taken apart in a way which can cause internal damage. The correct method is particularly important with larger size filters because if incorrectly disassembled, when reassembling it is difficult to locate the shaft correctly on the bearing.

The incorrect method is removing the cover nuts and lifting the entire unit, motor cover and filter element assembly as one piece. This can cause damage to the flushing arm(s), connector shaft and as mentioned above can cause damage on reassembly.

When taken apart incorrectly like this it is not possible to access all of the filter elements for cleaning, resulting in an incomplete clean which will then lead to more frequent manual cleaning.

You can read the correct way to take apart the filter, which is described graphically, by clicking the link below.
