- AstralPool’s new self-cleaning filter has nanofiber technology that improves the quality of water.
- NanoFiber’s exclusive filtering system prevents the build-up of limescale and increases the product’s service life.
AstralPool has added to its range of filtration systems for residential pools following the launch of its NanoFiber filter. The new self-cleaning device developed by the brand belonging to the Fluidra group has nanofiber technology and an operating system exclusive to the company, all of which ensures top quality filtered water in pools of up to 90 m3.
With the aim of delivering a degree of filtration never seen before in the residential
pool sector, AstralPool’s R&D team designed a sophisticated network of nanofibers exclusive to NanoFiber. This material enables particles as small as 5 to 8 microns to be filtered and prevents dirt from building up in the device. As a result, there is a significant improvement in the quality of water once it has been filtered.
Another of the device’s great advantages is that it is easy to clean. The self-cleaning system on top of the main body has a lever that is easy to automate. By turning this lever, the filter also turns in front of the tangential shower that is built into the unit, thus ensuring that the filter is properly cleaned. Moreover, this shower has been especially designed to spray the water used in backwashing evenly so that the whole surface of the filter is thoroughly cleaned. Finally, once the device has been backwashed, its initial settings, flow rate and pressure are restored.
Physico-chemical tests were conducted by an external laboratory (POROMETER NV) to analyses the effectiveness of NanoFiber’s filtration system. Following comparisons with other systems in the same category, the experts who conducted the tests stated that AstralPool’s mechanism filtered more evenly and thoroughly than all other models, which prevents limescale.
Apart from the fact that NanoFiber is easy to use, clean and reliable, they also highlighted its compact design (Ø 400 mm x 650 mm) and sustainability. This system is an example of efficient water use and is compatible with other filtration and pumping systems.
