Filters Fitted with a Backwash Pump

RF200A-E & RF200R-E Automatic Backwash Filter

The RF200A-E and RF200R-E are self-cleaning intake filters for attachment to the suction hose of surface mounted pumps.  These filters are the same as the RF200A filters and RF200R strainers with one difference. Unlike the 200A and 200R filters the backwash is not powered by the pump they are attached to - they have their own integral backwash pump to keep the filter mesh clear.

This allows you to vary the output of your pump without affecting the performance of the backwash in the filter – useful if you have a variable speed drive on your pump.  These filters and strainers will deliver up to 220 litres / minute of filtered output.

The RF200A-E can be fitted with tough nylon filter mesh or sintered stainless steel mesh and can filter from 60 - 315 microns. The RF200R-E filters can be fitted with 1mm, 2mm, 3mm or 6mm mesh.

RF400AR-E Self-cleaning Strainer with Backwash Pump

The RF400AR-E Stainers with backwash pump are self-cleaning intake filters for attachment to the suction hose of surface mounted pumps.  These filters can be fitted with nylon or stainless steel mesh and are the same as the RF400AR strainers but with one difference.

The filters have a separate motor to drive their internal self-cleaning backwash, so that the cleaning mechanism is driven independently of the surface mounted pump - they have their own integral backwash pump to keep the filter mesh clear.

This allows you to vary the output of your pump without affecting the performance of the backwash in the filter – useful if you have a variable speed drive on your pump.

These filters and strainers will deliver up to 1000 litres / minute of filtered output from 50 microns to 6mm.
