F1600 Media Filter – Carbon Steel with Stainless Steel Underdrain

F1600 Media Filter Features

  • Effective and reliable filtration of heavily contaminated water from open reservoirs, canals and recycled water systems
  • Stainless steel underdrain
  • Modular system for easier installation

The Rivulis F1600 Media Filters (Carbon Steel) provide the most effective and reliable filtration of water heavily contaminated with algae, organic matter, and other impurities found in open reservoirs, canals, and recycled water systems. The F1600 Media Filters use a bed of sand approximately fourteen inches deep to filter particles out of the water. The fully welded stainless steel underdrain provides a uniform backwash of the dirt particles trapped in the sand bed during the backwash cycle. The carbon steel filter and plastic backwash valve will effectively filter at 28 PSI. The stainless steel underdrain eliminates the requirement for a safety screen.

Installation made easier and faster.
The Rivulis F1600 Media Filter systems are designed as modules, so there is less custom assembly required. It’s now about assembling whole modules, and not every part.

f1600_carbonfilter_smlEach module includes:

  1. Inlet manifold with air vent
  2. Outlet manifold
  3. PVC adaptor for backwash manifold
  4. Plastic backwash valve
