RF200R Self-cleaning Strainer

From £1,480.00 GBP

The Rotorflush RF200R is a coarse screened self-cleaning strainer that connects to the suction hose of surface mounted pumps. The RF200R is fitted with a single sheet of perforated stainless steel mesh which forms the filter cage. Standard perforated mesh sizes are 3mm and 6mm. The RF200R filters have a capacity of up to 220 litres per minute.

All our filters have an internal cleaning rotor that is water powered by taking a 'T' off the output of your pump to supply the Rotorflush internal rotors. This water supply continuously backwashes the perforated screen pushing away anything that might cause it to block or blind.

These filters can operate in very dirty water and are ideal for use where there is a need to filter coarsely to protect pumps and other downstream equipment.

RF200R Self-cleaning Strainer - How it worksRotorflush RF200R self-cleaning strainer provides protection against blockage for surface mounted pumps and other connected equipment. These are coarse screened stainless steel dirty water suction intake filters with a capacity of up to 220 litres / minute (14 m3 per hour), capable of filtering from 3 mm to 6 mm.

The RF200R strainer can be fitted with 3 mm or 6 mm perforated steel. Both versions are very strong, low maintenance strainers, requiring only the occasional jet wash to keep them running.

These filters use a proportion of the pump’s output to supply a feed to an internal backwashing rotor. This supply is taken off the already filtered pump output. The twin jets of the cleaning rotor rotate at about 60 rpm in each filter, clearing the whole screen every ½ second.  As the cleaning mechanism is on the filtered side of the screen debris in the water will not obstruct the mechanism.

Approximately 27% of the pump output is required to supply the cleaning rotor.

For a larger capacity (up to 1000 litres per minute) please consider our RF300AR self-cleaning filter – up to 560 litres per minute. All our filters and strainers use the same patented technology, providing efficient self-cleaning backwash to keep their filter mesh clear for a range of flow rates.

Alternatively, where your pump output is variable or your pump has a variable speed drive you may wish to use RF-AE & RE series filters with backwash pumps.
