General Information About Flint Filterpumps™

Flint submersible filter pumps are compact all-purpose submersible pumps with a built-in self-cleaning intake. They are robust medium-head, multi-stage pumps with an integral self-cleaning suction intake.  Not only that, they screen dirty water as they pump - the self-cleaning intake protects against blocking.

They offer a maximum of 63 US GPM for the smaller FFB480 model and a maximum of 79 US GPM for the larger FFB800.  Maximum head ranges from 36 ft to 54 ft.

Flint Filterpumps™ are made of wear-resistant rubber and ductile iron for durability. Typical uses for Flint Filterpumps™ are:

  • filtering and pumping water from dirty lagoons
  • Irrigation from lakes, ponds or rivers for irrigation
  • cooling water
  • screening water in open loop heat pump systems
  • Rainwater harvesting
Flint filterpump range

Nylon Mesh inserts

The filter mesh is made up of replaceable bias-cut nylon mesh offering a very clean filtration, ideal for sampling. The inserts are inexpensive and easy to replace.

Available with 230, 120 or 50 US Mesh screens (60, 115, or 300 microns).

316 Sintered Stainless Steel mesh

Robust screen material that can be easily cleaned with a pressure washer. Ideal for heat pumps and other applications where small tolerances require finer screening.

Available with 270, 140 and 50 US Mesh screens (50, 100 or 315 microns).

316 Stainless Steel woven mesh

A tough coarse screen providing for low maintenance; filter pumps with coarse mesh come fitted with rubber backwash jets which are suitable for handling larger particulate and debris.

Available with 35, 18, 10 and 3 US Mesh screens (1 mm, 2 mm and 3 mm).

These filter pumps are ideal for screening and pumping raw water for irrigation and industry, small open loop water source heat pump installations, screening industrial process water and more.  For best performance, make sure that there is good clearance around the filter pump mesh so that back-washed debris can disperse, and that the filter pump is above any silt or sludge that may accumulate.

The smallest weigh in at 37 lbs, the largest at 45 lbs. Flint Filterpumps™ can be suspended in tanks, sumps or ponds. They can be suspended from floats or buoys, or raised and lowered on a guide-rail system.

Rotorflush Filters Ltd are happy to advise and comment on siting and installation.

There is no such thing as an entirely maintenance free filter but Flint Filterpumps™, in keeping with all Rotorflush filtration products, are designed for low maintenance hassle-free use.  

The nylon mesh inserts are easily replaced, and stainless mesh can be cleaned with a pressure washer. There is a trade off between mesh size and maintenance - how often depends on your mesh size and what you are filtering.

As a minimum we recommend the following:

  • Mesh up to 115 micron should be cleaned or replaced every 1000 hours of use
  • Mesh up to 315 micron should be cleaned or replaced every 5000 hours of use
  • Coarse mesh that is 1 mm or bigger should be inspected and cleaned every 6 - 12 months

Full maintenance guidelines can be found in the instruction manual available from the download link above.

 

All our products are guaranteed for a year. However, as a condition of our guarantee, and to protect against dry-running, we recommend the use of a starter panel or control panel capable of cos phi load monitoring when running three-phase filter pumps.

What is the difference between a Rotorflush Filterpump™ and a filter pump?

A filter pump is a pump with a filter on the intake; a Rotorflush Filterpump™  is our unique, award-winning submersible pump with a built-in self-cleaning filter on the pump intake that keeps the intake filter clear and protects the pump from blocking and clogging.
