Pressure Effluent Filter

Screens effluent under pressure on a pump discharge line

Features and Benefits

Clarus Environmental’s Pressure Filter helps prolong the life of an onsite system by filtering out solids which may cause harm to downstream components. The filter is useful in both residential and commercial pressure dose systems where the downstream components might include low pressure pipe, drip irrigation, recirculating media filters, or upflow wetlands. The unique design allows for installation just inside the riser, combining ease of maintenance with efficient performance. The base screen is of 347 stainless steel and utilizes 1/16" holes, although 600 micron and 100 micron filtration socks are available for finer filtration. The socks are very durable and can be cleaned and reused. A pressure alarm switch is also available. The switch monitors the pressure differential above and below the filter and will activate an alarm in the event of a clog.
