Side Stream Filters - Sand Filters

[Download data sheet]

These Sand Filters are designed and manufactured in South Africa. They have been developed and improved over a period of 35 years to be one of the most efficient sandfilters on the market.

Tektower provide a wide range of modular Sand Filters which can be built up into filter banks according to the required flow rate. Large sand surface areas with a deep sand bed, ensures effective filtration with minimum friction loss.   These sand filters serve as excellent primary filters and filter down to approximately 70 microns of fineness.

We supply a wide range of Side Stream Filter models starting as low as 12 m3/hr with models available in manual, Auto and Auto/manual.

The sturdy, spherical domed tanks with single or double welded seams with a custom designed overdrain diffuser and an enlarged underdrain ensures maximum efficiency. Critical component parts are made from stainless steel with pure red oxide internal and H.V. inhibited external epoxy coatings to ensure good anti-corrosive properties. There is a 10 Bar rating on all models except the manual units which are rated at 6 Bar.

The modular filter banks allow flexibility and ease of assembly of side stream filters on site.
