RF400 Self Cleaning Inlet Filter for pumps

Product Description

The RF400 self-cleaning filters and strainers are the most popular products. They are tough, versatile, easy to install and require minimal maintenance. They are used across a wide range of industries for all kinds of dirty water filtration. These filters will filter up to 1000 litres of dirty water per minute.

RF400 self-cleaning filters and intake strainers provide protection against blockage for surface mounted pumps and other connected equipment. These filters can be fitted with coarse stainless steel filter mesh (1mm – 6mm) or finer sintered stainless steel or nylon mesh screens (50 micron – 315 micron). The low intake velocity of these filters ensures that, when fitted with 2mm woven stainless steel mesh, they comply with current regulations for Eel protection.

Their stainless steel filter cages make them very strong, long-lasting, low maintenance strainers, requiring only the occasional jet wash or filter change to keep them running.

For a larger capacities our RF600 self-cleaning filters deliver up to 4,500 litres per minute, and we can custom build larger self-cleaning filters to your specifications. All our filters and strainers use the same patented technology, providing efficient self-cleaning backwash to keep their filter mesh clear for a range of flow rates.
