Micron Horizontal Commercial Filter

Waterco’s new lateral configuration provides a more natural flow of water through the filter, ensuring optimum water filtration and balanced fluidization of the filter bed during backwashing. Its individual laterals are shortened while maintaining filter media bed coverage to reduce the friction head loss of each lateral and further improve the filter’s hydraulic efficiency. This reduces backwash run times, saves valuable water, and produces flatter, more uniform filter media bed after backwashing.

  • Elliptical positive sealing manways
  • Flanged port of up to 10”
  • Hydraulically balanced distribution and lateral system
  • Fiberglass wound tank, UV and corrosion resistant
  • Large stable filter base for stable floor mounting
  • Manual drain

Conventional lateral systems result in uneven fluidization of the filter media bed. The beginning of the lateral system experiences a strong flow of water, which gradually decreases along the length of the lateral piping. Backwash flow also decreases towards the end of each lateral, resulting in non-uniform lifting of the filter media bed.
