Stainless steel filtration screens available in various sizes or made to order.

DIX ENGINEERING has been in business since 1923 and continues to manufacture filters which are distributed across all regions of Australia and also exported. The company manufactures to the highest standards and is quality certified under ISO 9001.

Dix Engineering offers the smallest hole punched stainless steel irrigation filter screens (0.35mm) offered anywhere in Australia. Various other sizes are also offered including 0.51mm; 0.75mm; 1.02mm; 1.60mm and 2.79mm. This range of stainless steel filters manufactured at the company premises in Renmark have proved to be extremely popular with irrigators and irrigation system installers and designers.

Designed for economy and hydraulic efficiency the stainless steel filters are now in use in every state of Australia.

Apart from agricultural use these filters are being successfully used in irrigating golf courses and for filtering of waste water in fruit packing plants.

The four standard filters in the range cater for flows from 750 litres per minute to as high as 10,000 litres per minute. Every filter is hydrostatically tested to twice its normal operating pressures before leaving the factory.

Two pressure ratings are available 345kP (50psi) and 690kP (100psi). All filters can be fitted with manually operated brushes and most with automatic flushing or automatic flushing and brushing.

Automatic flushing can be completely remote from any power source by using a dry battery powered timer or pressure differential system.

Where a power source is available automatic flushing and brushing can be achieved by either 415v or 240v.

Our exclusive flushing valve available in 50mm and 80mm is cast in brass for a life-time of work and when open has the most flow of any on the market. Flushing of shells and large pieces of rubbish is therefore no problem.

Probably the most extensive range of cast iron irrigation fittings available in Australia at competitive prices is also manufactured by G.J. Dix & Sons Pty Ltd.

Fittings for Fibrolite, Concrete and PVC pipes are readily available from stock or irrigation dealers throughout the country.

Special fittings can also be designed and manufactured to order, either fabricated or cast in the Renmark foundry in cast iron, brass, bronze or aluminium.

Dix Engineering also provides steel fabrication and installation services and has 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.
