Self Cleaning Filters and Submersible Pumps

Self cleaning suction intake filters and self cleaning strainers for use when pumping dirty water

Rotorflush Filters Ltd have been manufacturing, selling and developing unique and patented self-cleaning dirty water filters since 1996. Our filters are sold to customers world-wide.

All our products are supplied from our manufacturing and engineering works in the UK on the beautiful Devon / Dorset border.

We offer two main product sets incorporating Rotorflush self-cleaning filters:

Submersible filterpumps with integral self-cleaning intake filters
Self-cleaning suction filters and strainers for use with dry mounted pumps

We also supply filters for analysers and protecting water monitoring equipment, and a fully automated inline filter system for cleaning industrial process water.

All our self-cleaning filters have a continuous backwash to keep the filter screen clear of debris without interrupting the flow.

Why you need a Rotorflush Filter

What they are used for.....

Our filters keep irrigation equipment going, water works working, fountains flowing and protect pumps, heat exchangers and analytical instruments.

The first type of product is a submersible filterpump with an integral self-cleaning intake filter.

Our filterpumps are submersible, continuously rated and have their own built -in self-cleaning filter. Pumping and filtering are combined. The self-cleaning intake filter keeps the filter mesh clear of any suspended solids and debris to protect the pump and other equipment. The suction intake self-cleans whenever the pump is running.

We are extending our range of submersible pumps with integral self-cleaning suction intakes. We now offer submersible pumps from 150 litres a minute up to 1800 litres a minute, and mesh sizes from 60 microns (on smaller submersibles) to 6mm on larger filterpumps.

The large open area and the low velocity intake of our filters ensure our filterpumps can comply with Eel Regulations.

Why you need them......

They enable greater water efficiency through recycling and re-use, reduce downtime spent on pump and filter maintenance, reduce energy bills and lower dirty water disposal costs.

Self-cleaning suction filters and strainers

The second type of filtration product we offer are self-cleaning filters for use with surface mounted pumps. These stainless steel filters are extremely tough and require little maintenance.

Our filters are driven by taking a tee off the filtered output of your pump and sending a flow of filtered output back to the filter to drive the backwash mechanism inside. The cleaning effect is the same as the submersible pump filters. These filters have no power source other than your pump when it is in operation. Have a look at the ‘How it works’ document attached.

We offer self-cleaning filters from 30 litres a minute up to over 1000 m3 / hour, and mesh sizes from 60 microns (on smaller filters) to 6mm.

We can also design and build self-cleaning intake strainers to suit your particular requirements

Help in choosing your filter

Our customers benefit from our knowledge gained from years of successfully producing self-cleaning intake filters in shapes, sizes and designs that meet their particular filtration needs.
