Separators - Solids/Liquids Separators

In-Line Separators for Industrial Applications

Use our centrifugal-action separator to remove grit, sand, metal chips, fines, and other solids from liquids.

Perfect for use as a pre-filter to extend the life of fine filtration systems. These units require little or no maintenance, as there are no moving parts to fail or wear out, or filter media to clean or replace. The unit only requires a simple purging, eliminating downtime due to cleaning or backwashing. For flows from 6 gpm and retention ratings to 50 micron.

How it works

Fluid enters the pressure vessel tangentially at high velocity. A centrifugal action is created, which forces the solids to separate and enter the sump, while the clean liquid exits up through the standpipe. The solids collect in the sump, and can easily be purged. The operation is so simple, it can be set to automatically purge on a timed interval.
