RF100-IND Self Cleaning Pump Inlet Filter
Rotorflush RF100-IND Self Cleaning Pump Inlet Filter – Technical Specifications
The RF100-IND Self Cleaning Pump Inlet is the smallest of Rotorflush’s award winning filters. It has a maximum usable flow (depending on conditions) of 30 litres / minute. The RF100-IND self-cleaning inlet filter is an ideal pond pump filter. It is designed to protect small surface mounted pumps and other equipment.
- Protecting newts and tadpoles as a pond pump filter
- Protecting equipment from weed and debris
- Filtration of samples to online analysers
- Small irrigation systems
- Rainwater harvesting systems
- Small pond pumps, fountains and water features
- Anywhere a flow of filtered fluid is required.
The filter uses a proportion of the pump’s output to supply a feed to the internal backwashing rotor. The twin jets of the cleaning rotor rotate at about 60 rpm, cleaning the whole screen every ½ second. Approximately 20 – 25% of the pump output is required to supply the cleaning rotor.
For a larger capacity (up to 60 litres per minute) these filters can be combined to form a double headed duplex version that uses the same technology and filter cages, giving twice the flow rate.
As the cleaning mechanism is on the filtered side of the screen debris in the water will not obstruct the mechanism
