180-FRP Sea Water Filtration

180 Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Series Filters – Sea Water Filtration

The 180 Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Series filters offer an ideal solution for corrosion resistance in brackish, brine and seawater filtration applications. Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic, or Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is a composite material or fiber-reinforced polymer made of a plastic reinforced by fine fibers made of glass.¹ All wetted components of the FRP Series self-cleaning filters are constructed from seawater- resistant plastic or other high alloy materials.

Forsta’s FRP Series self-cleaning water filters are available with an on-line, or in-line flange configuration to accommodate simple installation, and easily integrate with any pipeline in a seawater filtration process.

A two-stage screening distinguishes the FRP Series filters. A coarse screen is responsible for straining out large debris from the water source, and the fine screen purifies water to the designated micron rating.
