Sand Separators

We offer a range of easy-to-install and clean inline sediment filters that remove organics, sand and sediment from water systems.

The Lakos Twist11 Clean, for instance, just a gentle twist of the handle begins the patented reverse flushing action, and the TwistIIClean back washes from the inside out. The entire cleaning process takes less than 20 seconds! The TwistIIClean means no mess, no leaks, and no tools required. With five different screen sizes available, filter sediment down to just 74 microns! See video

Rusco Spin-Down® and Rusco Sediment Trapper® filters are efficient, easy-to-maintain sediment filters that can be used in applications from 1 GPM up to 100 GPM. The Rusco Spin-Down filters can also be fitted with automated flush valves.
