    General Description

    Sediment filters are needed when the water supply is cloudy or turbid. The easiest way to remove the particles is by passing the water through a media where the particles get trapped allowing clear water to flow through. The particles can be periodically backwashed away to drain. Sand is the ideal media for this. Only the highest quality, triple washed 0.4 to 0.8mm size water treatment grade sand is used in these systems typically reducing particles to about 40׬m.

    Important Notes Regarding Selection

        When selecting a suitable sand filter, care should be taken to ensure you have enough water available to backwash (clean) the filter correctly. For example if you have a flow rate of 1m3/hr, you may select model 1354/WS1/SAND, however this unit will require a flow rate of 2m3/hr to backwash for a period of approx 15mins. You would therefore require 500ltr of water for the backwash process at a flow rate of 2m3/hr to clean the filter efficiently.

    • A minimum pressure of 2bar at the filter is required for operation
    • A drain is required for the filter to gravitate the waste water into during backwash
    • Not suitable for pump systems operated via float switches
