Hydrocyclone sand separators

Hydrocyclone sand separators help prevent sand getting into your irrigation system and damaging components.

Important: Hydrocyclones are a form of pre-filtration used prior to other filtration. It is not used as standalone filtration.

How they operate

They are designed to remove particles with a density greater than water.

A “cyclone” is made within the filter that pushes particles to the side, then they fall into the chamber. Keep in mind that for the cyclonic effect to work, very specific flow ranges are required. If the flow is out of this range, the filter will simply not work.

The second point to remember is that the underflow chamber needs to be flushed or drained when it is more than 1/3 full.
