The filter has a compact body design that requires a small footprint. The flushing mechanism has several advantages including no requirement for AC power because of its hydraulic motor that powers the flushing cycle. The flushing process is done by highly efficient suction nozzles. The entire screen is exposed to the flushing process because of the continuous linear movement of the collector assembly. The F3200 Metal Screen Filter with Hydraulic operation, is used as a primary filter for water containing large quantities of dirt; up to 50 ppm and from water sources such as rivers, lakes, wells, and recycled water. These filters are self-cleaning and continue to operate during the flushing cycle.
