Lakos Separator 1-1/2 NPT Inline CS: 45-70 GPM: Heavy-duty carbon steel construction with tough exterior painted blue coating. Lakos sand separators are ideal for removing sand and grit from well water systems without filter cartridges. The sand separator works on a the principle of centrifugal force removing over 98% of all 200 mesh sized particles (74 microns) and greater.

No moving parts to wear out, no screens, cartridges, cones or filter elements to clean or replace. The separator must be periodically purged, which is best done while the system is in operation and the water is flowing. Automatic purge kits are available for additional cost. Operates with no downtime and purging can take place while the well water is being used. Maximum line pressure allowed 150 PSI. Pressure loss at maximum flow rate is 12 PSI. Purge size outlet is 3/4" NPT, male.

In general, use the coarsest mesh deemed acceptable to filter the materials you want to remove. This will help to extend the life of your system and reduce how often the filter requires cleaning.

Choose Between CS (carbon steel painted series) or SS (stainless steel series)

Great for irrigation systems and residential wells

Removes sand, grit and other fine solids from well water, removing 98% of 200 mesh (74 microns) and larger particles from the water stream without filters or screens!

Lakos centrifigal separators have no screens, solid baffles, or moving parts. No maintenance is required other than periodic purging of the unwanted solids by opening up bottom ball valve (valve not included).

Works on pressures up to 150 PSI.

Low Pressure Drop: only 12 PSI at max flow

how a separator works

Choosing a Purge Kit

  • Lakos Visual Purge Kit

    A low price, manual purge kit

  • AccuPurge Automatic Valve

    A medium range purge kit for smaller loads of sediment. The typical well might have too much sediment for this valve to operate properly.

  • AutoMBV Motorized Valve 110V/220V

    Recommended for most wells, especially wells with larger sediment loads.
