Brine tank FT 130

The FT 130 brine tank is available as an option. It supplies the IMAX ECOline injectors with up to 130 l of brine. Coarse particles are effectively filtered out using an external rotary fil-ter with a scraper. Brine intake is performed by the stationary suction filter, which can be quickly removed for cleaning purposes using the patented quick-release system. The tank guarantees a high degree of utilization of the brine with a leftover quantity of residual brine of less than ten liters.

The cleaning position ensures fast and effective cleaning – there is a mounting to accom-modate all parts on the brine tank itself.
