Filtration  | Sand Separators (SCP)

Patented Technology 

Sand creates serious challenges for irrigation systems since plugged or worn nozzles can dramatically affect performance. Zimmatic Sand Separators for Center Pivot (SCP) irrigation powered by LAKOS technology employ centrifugal action to remove settleable sand, grit and scale from pumped water – extending pivot, sprinkler, end gun and booster pump life.

The patented Sand Separators are rated to remove 98% of all sand-like particle matter down to 200 mesh (74 microns) with 2.6 specific gravity and larger in a single pass. Technologies involved in the Sand Separator are the following: Swirlex slots accelerate centrifugal action for optimum performance and the enhanced Vortube enhances solids separation. 

Independently tested for rugged performance 

Zimmatic Sand Separators have been tested by the International Center for Water Technology (ICWT), confirming the performance and capability to remove troublesome particle matter from pumped water.
