Mechanical Filtration


HEX™ Drum Filters represent the latest in microscreen drum filtration technology for aquaculture. The patented HEX BeeCell™ Microscreen utilizes nature’s own unique design to provide more efficient filtration than traditional filters. Advanced features included in the HEX™ Drum Filter are a culmination of 30 years of experience and development by aquaculture engineers and biologists. As a result, the HEX™ Drum Filter design has more flexibility and is more efficient with energy, water usage, cost and filtration capacity than traditional filters on the market today.

The new "X" Series drum filter is the latest refinement of HEX drum filter technology. The X series is manufactured with virtually no metal parts for the best corrosion resistance, including the elimination of metal panel straps. The X series drum filters includes reinforced plastic drum construction with longer drum models available in X2 and X3 model series to achieve better economy of scale options.

HEX™ Drum Filters are delivered in a full product range, manufactured as model X1-1 with a single panel up to F5-9 with 45 filter panels. BeeCell™ Microscreens are available from as small as 10 micron up to 1000 micron, with a flow range capacity from 44 – 22,017 gpm (10 to 5000 m3/ h) of water in each unit. There are three basic filter configurations to suit any drum filter application and many custom options are available to suit the needs of any project.

Please consult Integrated Aqua Systems, Inc. for assistance in sizing and configurations for your next project.
