PENGUIN SERIES A-A and A-B IN-TANK FILTRATION SYSTEMS  incorporate the P series pumps and C series chambers. They are compact, corrosion-resistant, and metal free, requiring no floor space. If desired, both system types can be mounted outside the tank. Unlike one-piece submerged filtration systems, A-A and A-B filtration systems need not be removed from the tank for cleaning or cartridge change-out. Designed for sealless-free, bearing-free and maintenance-free operation, the chamber cover on single cartridge chambers can be easily removed by hand, and a new replacement cartridge dropped in.  The Penguin design incorporates leak-proof filtration with no liquid bypass. All chambers accommodate Penguin PF string-wound or PC carbon filter cartridges.

The P series pumps are standard on the A-A / A-B series and are constructed from either CPVC, Polypropylene or high temperature PVDF.  Most pumps come with an epoxy-coated motor housing for corrosion resistance and are equipped with a totally enclosed fan-cooled motor with an oversized bearing set for easy replacement. Single-phase motors are equipped with a cord and grounding plug. Three-phase motors are shipped unwired. P series pumps are self-priming when immersed in solution and can run dry without damage.

 

Series A-A and A-B filtration systems are available in 6 models to service small and medium volume tanks. Series A-B filter systems are available in 11 models to accommodate larger volume tanks. All materials in contact with the solution are high temperature CPVC, which provides a highly corrosion-resistant filter system with no wearing parts. Both series can be supplied in polypropylene or PVDF. Consult the factory for details. Penguin Series A-A and A-B combine P-1/15A pumps and 3C filter chambers to produce a reliable, economical filter system. Penguin Series A-AS/A-AL feature P-1/6A, P-1/4A pumps and 3C filter chambers. Penguin Series A-AS/A-BL have P-1/6A, P-1/4A, P-1/2A, P-3/4A, and P-1A pumps combined with 3CN and 6CN filter chambers. The AL and BL series provide a higher flow for continuous filtration, agitation, and extended filter cartridge life. As an option, all A-A, A-S, and A-L filter systems can be supplied with solid piping.

Penguin P series pumps are equipped with a totally enclosed fan cooled motor with an oversized bearing set for easy replacement.

Felt Bag FiltersPENGUIN SERIES BF BAG FILTRATION SYSTEMS are designed to provide rapid, high velocity solution turnover, while removing contaminants that tend to “surface load”. The larger surface area of the single layered polypropylene filter bag  provides significant longer life when compared to a graded density, string wound cartridge filter. One PB-7, 7” diameter by 16.5” long, bag is equivalent to approximately twelve 2.5” diameter by 10” long string wound filters. Disposable bags are economical to use and may be easily discarded when spent or cleaned for reuse.Penguin bag filtration systems are corrosion-resistant, metalless, confined to the tank compact, and require no floor space. These systems can be mounted as an in-tank or out-of-tank pump with a tank lip-mounted bag stand. The materials in contact with the solution are CPVC and polypropylene, thus providing a highly corrosion-resistant filter system.

Series BF bag systems include a flow control valve and a bypass valve for liquid transfer. For easy filter bag cleaning or replacement, a polypropylene quick disconnect coupling is supplied. A polypropylene bag adaptor head with CPVC split ring is provided to firmly secure the bag in place and to prevent it from accidentally detaching itself from the adaptor head. Bag adaptor heads are available with 1” or 11/2” FNPT openings.

Filter Bags
Penguin polypropylene single layered felt bags are available in micron ratings from 1 to 100. Polypropylene mesh monofilament bags are available in micron ratings greater than 100 micron through 300 micron. Bag rings are fabricated in PVC coated steel or optional 316SS. Bags are offered with nominal 5” and 7” diameter openings in single and double lengths.

Pumps
Penguin Series P sealless vertical pumps employed on bag systems are constructed of CPVC with a viton elastomer and a high temperature PVDF impeller as an option. There is no liquid to metal contact. These pumps are compact, portable, and self-priming when immersed in solution. Because of their unique impeller design, these pumps have no mechanical seals, no pump bearings, no bushings, no wearing parts, and thus have almost unlimited dry run capability. Series P pumps are simple in design and efficient in performance, while requiring little or no maintenance.
