Sapphire Range 600AR Filterpumps

From £17,250.00

Rotorflush Sapphire 600AR filterpumps are high pressure submersible pumps suitable for general industrial and agricultural applications.

Their 600mm diameter stainless steel self-cleaning intake screen can be manufactured from 304 or 316 stainless steel.  The powerful three phase motors offer high pressure pumping while the self-cleaning intake screens protect the intake and pump from blockage.

The Sapphire range 600AR filterpumps use Rotorflush's unique self-cleaning intake filter technology. They deliver an uninterrupted supply of water while a continuous backwash keeps the intake, pump and other downstream equipment blockage free.

These filterpumps offer fine or coarse filtration up to 3mm while pumping up to 1500 litres a minute.  They provide the same low maintenance and efficient intake screening as all our submersible filterpumps.

Models & Specification

Sapphire Range 600AR Submersible Pumps with Built-in Self-cleaning Intake Screens

The Sapphire 600AR range is a range of industrial medium to high pressure self-cleaning submersible filterpumps offering up to 1500 litres per minute (90 m3 / hr).  These filterpumps are very robust, they are all cast iron with a 304 stainless steel outer casing and a 400mm 304 stainless steel self-cleaning intake. They deliver up to 1500 litres minute of filtered water which is screened as you pump.  The stainless steel self-cleaning mechanism in the intake intake lets you combine pumping and screening from source without the screen or pump blocking. They are ideal for screening and moving large volumes of dirty water at higher pressures.

Sapphire Range 600AR filterpumps self-cleaning intakes prevent debris entering the pump and keep debris off the filter screen. They can be fitted with a range of mesh sizes:

  • 315 micron stainless steel sintered filter mesh
  • 1mm or 2mm woven stainless steel mesh
  • 3mm perforated steel mesh.

Filterpump self-cleaning intakes  can be manufactured in 316 stainless steel if required. All our steel filter mesh is 316 stainless steel.  Sapphire filterpumps offer high pressure and high flow rates.

*60 Hz versions may be available – please ask.

Please note as standard these filterpumps are fitted with 15 m cable.

Sapphire Range submersible pumps have three phase motors and are fitted with self-cleaning suction intake screens.

NB: It is very important that three phase motor filterpumps are connected to their power source correctly, to ensure that the pump motor runs in the right direction. When pumps run backwards they are inefficient and the motor may be damaged. To see how to test that the pump is wired correctly watch this video.

Please note that we strongly recommend the use of Control Panels and / or a Din Rail mounted Cos Phi Load Monitor with all 3 phase models to prevent damage to pumps.

Installing adequate load monitoring is a condition of our guarantee for these products.
