IRRIGATION & FILTRATION
Dix Engineering has been manufacturing filters of only the highest standard since the business opened in 1923. Our filters, which are quality certified under ISO 9001, are distributed across all regions of Australia as well as exported overseas.
Designed for economy and hydraulic efficiency, the stainless steel filters manufactured at the company premises in Renmark have proved to be popular with irrigators and irrigation system installers and designers.
Apart from agricultural use these filters are being successfully used in irrigating golf courses, metal processing plants, mining (cleaning of process and wastewater) and for filtering of waste water in fruit packing plants, juicing and bottling lines.
The eight standard filters (in line or right angle) in the range cater for flows from 375 litres per minute to as high as 10,000 litres per minute. To ensure durability, every filter is hydrostatically tested to twice its normal operating pressures before leaving the factory.
The working pressure of filters is 1000kPa. All filters can be fitted with manually operated brushes or automatic flushing and brushing.
In addition, our filters can utilise renewable energy, and where a power source is available automatic flushing and brushing can be achieved by either 415v, 240v or 120v DC battery solar combination when no power is available.
Dix Engineering also stocks a range of media filters, forcing water under pressure through a bed of sand or gravel. These stainless steel tanks are available in sizes ranging from 230mm to 1200mm in diametre, or can be manufactured to customer specifications.
Sintered mesh screens are available to 50, 80, 120 and 150 mesh (number of holes per square inch) to cater for all requirements.
Our team manufacture and stock the most extensive range of cast iron fittings available in Australia at competitive prices. Fittings for fibrolite, concrete, PVC and PE pipes are readily available from stock or irrigation dealers throughout the country.
Special fittings can also be designed and customized to order, either fabricated or cast in the Renmark foundry in cast iron, brass, bronze or aluminum.
In addition, we distribute Azud filtration systems which extend our range of screen and filtration systems, manual helix disc, disc, screen and automatic disc filters and systems.
To ensure we are providing the very best product to our customers, Dix Engineering recently purchased a state-of-the-art, fully-computerised plasma cutter, capable of cutting mild steel and stainless steel with high definition, precision and accuracy.
