Arkal Sand Filtration Systems – Sand Filters
The 2″ Sand Separator battery is a modular system that separates sand from the water and collects the sand at the bottom of the system, ready to be drained.
See explanation of the sand separation process.
Sand Separator batteries may be built with manual (or automatic) disc filter units that filtrate the residual sand particles and other solid impurities from the water. The inlet of each filter unit is connected to the outlet of one of the sand separators and completes it’s operation. Each filter unit has one filtration element composed of a stack of grooved discs.
Sand Filters Arkal AGF Series
|Sand Filters Arkal AGF Series are the newest addition to the Netafim family of micro-irrigation products. Developed by Arkal, the world’s foremost filtration company, Sand Filters Arkal AGF Series delivers the very best in media filtration available today.
|Arkal Water Filtration Systems operate using a specially designed disc filtration technology. Thin, color-coded polypropylene discs are diagonally grooved on both sides to a specific micron size. A series of these discs are then stacked and compressed on a specially designed spine. When stacked, the groove on top runs opposite to the groove below, creating a filtration element with a statistically significant series of valleys and traps for solids. The stack is enclosed in a corrosion and pressure resistant housing.
Heavy duty construction, made entirely of the highest quality FDA grade NSP listed polpropylene.
Superior chemical resistance for most acids, alchohol, ammonia, oils, planting solutions and many other aggressive chemicals.
Housings and EPDM o-rings, rated for temperatures to 125º F (52ºF) and pressures to 125 psi (8.75 bar).
Cap, sump and top-seated o-ring compress to provide leak proof sealing.
100% virgin polyproylene housings available for high purity water.
|“Minitwist” Model MTFC is a fully automatic, self-cleaning filtration system for flows of 0 – 100 US GPM (23M3/H). It removes dirt as fine as 20 micron, and uses a very small amount of water during cleaning process. In filtration mode, flow is from bottom of filter to inside of screen, and out. During cleaning mode, rotating nozzles collect dirt removed from screen by reverse flow, and sends it out through top of filter. Backwash process takes only 5 seconds.|
