What are Screen Filters?
Screen filters are devices used to remove solid particles from water sources in irrigation systems or domestic pipe supply systems.
Aqua Hub Kenya has quality screen filters at affordable prices. We have 1 to 4 inch sizes of screen filters.
Made of Plastic HDPE and PVC materials.
They are available in sizes of 25 mm, 32 mm, 40 mm, 50 mm, 63 mm and 90 mm sizes.
They come in various sizes and mesh configurations.
Have different levels of filtration depending on the mesh sizes.
Features of a Screen Filter
They consist of a fine mesh/screen which acts as a barrier that allows water to pass through while trapping particles.
They are commonly applied in various uses to prevent debris and sediments from blocking supply pipes, drip lines and other equipments.
What to consider when choosing a Filter?
The choice of a Screen Filter depends on the source of water and pressure of an irrigation system.
The best filters for drip or any other system depends on the size of the project or farm to irrigate. They are the best choices for small irrigation projects that have lower accumulation of soil particles.
Advantages of Screen Filters
- obviously simple to install and use.
- They are cheap to buy, install and maintain.
- Plastic filters can last for a long time while operating in a good condition.
- They do not corrode or contaminate water.
- Screen filters are plastic polymer materials thus can withstand high temperatures of water or sunlight.
- Easier to maintain and repair in case of damage, hereby manageable.
- Cleaning is faster and simple since they can open easily.
Applications of Screen Filters
They are often installed at entry points of home water supply to remove sediments from water
Trapping particles, silt and soil from blocking, damaging or clogging sprinkler heads, drip lines and rain hose irrigation pipes.
Industrial application in water filtration and purification.
Most industrial processes require clean and particle free water to ensure smooth operation of equipment. For instance, they can be applicable in cooling towers, pumps, boilers and various processes to remove impurities.
Municipal water treatment
They play a role in initial water treatment plants by removing particles before further treatment can be done to water.
When it comes to aquaculture, they are useful for preventing fish or shrimp from escaping.
Not only do screen filters trap fish, but they also allow water circulation or out flow while.
In addition to fish trapping, screen filters can also trap food particles fish may fail to feed on.
