EZ Clean MEC automatic, liquid filtration system

Some processes require both magnetic separation and a barrier filter. Your process stream may contain both magnetic and non-magnetic material, such as steel and aluminum.

Why purchase two separate systems?

The MEC combines the capabilities of Maggie and EC900 into a single system with one set of valves, one set of controls, and the footprint of a single system.

Reduce system complexity and floor space requirements and save money. The MEC is the ideal solution in steel mills, tube mills and paint pre-treatment systems.

The MEC is the only permanent media, in-line filter that combines magnetic and barrier filtration in a single system.

Refer to Maggie and EC900 for additional information pertaining to these two products.

EZ Clean EC series filtration systems are available with two control options:

  • Proprietary, Solid-State, Printed Circuit Board (PCB) control system – for use EC100, 1-Pod, EC100, 2-Pod and EC100, 3-Pod systems. The PCB controls are housed in a NEMA 4, painted steel enclosure with a membrane keypad and LCD display that allows the user to configure timers and displays operational status. An LED stack light provides system status (i.e. power on, backwash and fault / alarm).

    The control system features three modes of backwash initiation.

    • Automatic based upon differential pressure
    • Automatic based upon time interval
    • Manual

    The ZGF PCB controls also provide some interface capability with other control systems

  • Logic Module (Siemens LOGO!) – for use with any EC Clean EC series filtration systems. The controls are housed in a NEMA 4, painted steel enclosure or a NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosure. A door mounted user-interface allows the user to configure timers and displays operational status. An LED stack light provides system status (i.e. power on, backwash and fault / alarm).
