Lakos Separator SS 1/2" 4-10 GPM
Lakos Separator 1/2 NPT Inline SS: 4-10 GPM: 316L stainless steel construction lasts for many years and resistant to corrosive waters. 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.
