Integrated Aqua upgrades drum filter technology

June 19, 2020  By Hatchery International staff

Integrated Aqua Systems Inc. has released its latest effort to refine drum filter technology.

The AquaPLC controller with Intelligent Controls technology is the company’s most advanced drum filter controller. It is designed to maximize the operational efficiency of drum filters used in aquaculture facilities.

The controller can be programmed to respond to increases in TSS level, exposing the full surface area of the screen during normal operation. This can save power and reduce rinse water by at least 50 percent compared to traditional controls.

It is also designed to promote buildup of filter cake on drum filter screens, prolonging intervals between rinse cycles and allowing finer particle capture than the rated screen size.


The AquaPLC controller also boasts new intelligent features to improve overall system safety. It has built-in “handshake” programming which confirms proper equipment switching and operation that is used to alarm equipment failures. The AquaPLC accepts two analog inputs and includes ethernet communications for any type of drum filter application. It also has a 4.3-inch backlit LED touchscreen for easy, guided programming and data analytics display.
