Smart Filter

Specialized in the tertiary wastewater treatment, FAIVRE wanted to automate its range of drum filters ROTOCLEAN to make them more performing and to reduce their maintenance. Thus is born the SMART FILTER, a new generation of drum filter for the industrial and urban wastewater treatment plants. As robust as ROTOCLEAN, SMART FILTER integrates innovative technologies and offers a time-saver to its users. Thanks to the top of the range technologies, you can now control one or more rotary drum filter(s) remotely and continuously follow-up your drum filter.

Innovative technologies

SMART FILTER is equipped with new generation components which reduce the maintenance and facilitate its follow-up.


SMART FILTER informs you in real-time of your filter’s data. Its maintenance is simplified.

Smart interface

The data reading is more convivial thanks to the touch screen linked to the SMART FILTER’s automaton. 

Remote monitoring

SMART FILTER is equipped with a technology that enables the control of one or more filter(s) thanks to a system monitoring.


The functioning of a SMART FILTER is equal to a ROTOCLEAN : FAIVRE’s rotary drum filters work by gravity, mostly set up after the clarifier. The effluent is directed into the machine in order to be filtered. Thanks to the filter plates, the Suspended Solids bigger than the mesh are trapped and cleared out of the drum filter. Our thickness of filtration enables a good liquid-solid separation during the tertiary treatment process.

The difference between the ROTOCLEAN range and the SMART FILTER range are their technical characteristics: the SMART FILTER is equipped with innovative elements to facilitate its follow-up and its maintenance.

SMART FILTER answers our customers’ request: robustness and reliability for a timesaver and a maintenance reduced.

Innovative components

  • Flowmeter: ensures the self-cleaning function of the drum filter
  • Probes: guarantee an optimal tertiary treatment of every effluent
  • Heating tape: switches on the filter in case of cool temperature
  • Can control one or more rotary drum filter(s) remotely
  • Warning light: settled on the top of the filter. Its colour changes when the filter has an issue
  • Home touch screen: to inform the origin of every dysfunction

Easy to use

The touch screen is settled on the electric box and linked to an automaton. This automaton, connected to the drum filter, warns the user of the potential faults that can appear on the drum filter. The advantages of SMART FILTER live through its maintenance reduced and the simplicity to follow-up the machine and its configuration.


The innovative components of SMART FILTER are made to resist to the most corrosive effluents thanks to high qualitative materials. Here are listed all the elements present on a SMART FILTER.

  • Drum motor
  • Warning light
  • Suspended Matters probe
  • Sludge chute
  • Level sensor
  • Inlet water
  • Flowmeter
  • Heating tape
