Questions that you might ask Rotorflush

  1. Can the filter system operate non-stop 24/7?
    • All our filter systems are designed for continuous use in all conditions. This is what makes the Rotorflush range of industrial filters unique. We recommend the use of some form of dry run protection – float switches and electronic controls – to ensure that changing conditions do not affect the performance of the pumps.


  2. Will the filters cope with rubbish such as plastic bags?
    • The principal of the self-cleaning filter is a continuous cycle of blowing away material blocking the filter with a small amount of filtered liquid, in between drawing in large amounts of filtered liquid. If a large object such as a plastic bag was to be sucked onto the surface of the filter then this will normally be removed from the screen by the backwash jets.


  3. Where does the solid matter go, that is filtered out?
    • The filters leave the solids in the water you are pumping from. Put another way the filters extract a filtered supply from the dirty water. We do have solutions if you wish to retain the solids that are filtered out – call us to discuss.


  4. Will the filters extract water from sludge?
    • No, they won’t. As a rule of thumb, they work in water with some solids, not in solids with some water. The water to be filtered still has roughly the same viscosity as water. Once it becomes more viscous than water they are not suitable.


  5. Do you do one-offs or adapt your equipment for specific applications?
    • Yes- we have worked with a number of companies to provide bespoke equipment to solve their filtration problems


  6. Are your products guaranteed?
    • Yes, we give a 1-year guarantee on all industrial products.


  7. If the motor fails on a Filterpump do I have to buy a whole new pump?
    • Normally we can repair it, which is much cheaper than buying a whole new pump.


  8. Are Rotorflush products suitable for Seawater?
    • The RF400A, RF600R, (Filters for surface mounted pumps) and the Analyser Filter system are fine in sea water, other products will work in sea water but their life may be shortened.


  9. What are the prices?
    • Prices start from around £750.00. As there are many options on the products please ring with your requirements and we can normally email you a quote within a few hours.


  10. Do you export to overseas customers?
    • Yes, we often export.
