Screen filters for irrigation system:
Screen filters are the most common filters used in the irrigation industry and in most cases the least expensive. They are generally used as a backup for any type of drip irrigation installation and are mainly installed where the quality of water is good. Screen filters are excellent for removing hard particulates from water, such as sand and other small elements often found in city water. The screen filters are not suitable for removing organic materials such as algae, mold and slime. These non-solid materials tend to embed themselves into the screen material where they are very difficult to remove. In other cases they simply slide through the holes in the screen by temporarily deforming their shape. For these types of debris use a Disc element. The screen filters are cleaned by removing cover and hand cleaning the screen.
Polyester screen and Stainless screen cylinder chemical resistance: Acid: very good resistance depending on concentration and temperature. Resistance to most mineral acids is excellent.
Excellent resistance to low concentration lyes. Dissolves in highly concentrated lyes at higher temperatures. , Generally the screens show no evidence of toxicity and have excellent resistance to decay and bacteria. , Organic solvents: excellent resistance. Some phenolic compounds and hot nitrobenzene dissolve the screens , Oxidizing agents: good resistance
Rubber "O" rings on both ends ensure a quality seal
Screens have excellent resistance to most common chemicals
