180 Series – Horizontal Self-Cleaning Filters

The 180 Series filters offer a unique configuration of automatic self-cleaning water filters. Commonly referred to as horizontal self-cleaning filters, 180 Series filters can be installed in any orientation.
180 Series self-cleaning water filters have a parallel flange configuration to accommodate simple installation. The 180 Series automatic water filter will integrate with any straight pipeline.

180 Series industrial water filters are distinguished by a two-stage screening process. Each water filtration system contains a coarse screen and a fine screen. The coarse screen is responsible for straining out large debris from a water source. The fine screen purifies water to its designated quality.

These automatic water filters provide solutions in a wide variety of industrial, irrigation, and municipal applications.
