Riverside, California, May 10, 2016 – Yardney Water Filtration Systems adds Filtaworx® Automatic Self-Cleaning Screen Filters to its extensive irrigation product line. The new filters provide superior protection for drip, micro-spray, sprinklers and golf course irrigation systems. The compact system is simple to install and can be mounted in any position or orientation with minimal space requirements.
The Filtaworx system removes algae, slime and organic contaminants, sand grit and inorganic contaminants with fine mesh filtration to 250 mesh or 50 microns. Eight models with nominal flow rates from 444 GPM to 3,960 GPM are available.
A heavy duty 304 stainless filter body provides corrosion resistance in most environments and the durable, self-cleaning mechanism needs little maintenance. A variety of screens are available to fill the need for any filtration job. It operates at a maximum pressure of 150 PSI, accompanied by a standard hydraulic controller or an optional electrical controller. Plus, sectional screens make for easy replacement of a screen section if damage occurs, instead of the entire cartridge.
“Filtaworx screen filters are one of the more technically innovative, self-cleaning filters on the market,” Chris Phillips, Yardney President, said. “They combine proven high performance, reliability and economy in a compact, robust design.”
He added that automatic operation of the self-cleaning cycle begins when a pre-set pressure drop is reached. Fewer moving parts along with an enlarged bearing also contribute to field reliability.
In addition to standard assembly, upgrade options include 316 stainless steel housing, an electric controller and high-pressure.
