Sand creates serious challenges for irrigation systems since plugged or worn nozzles can dramatically affect performance. LAKOS Sand Separators for Center Pivot (SCP) irrigation 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: LAKOS Swirlex slots accelerate centrifugal action for optimum performance and the Enhanced Vortube enhances solids separation.
INDEPENDENTLY TESTED FOR RUGGED PERFORMANCE
LAKOS 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.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS:
No moving parts to wear out, eliminating costly downtime and replacement parts
Low and steady pressure loss of 2-6 psi (.137 – .413 bar)
Space-saving low profile design to fit any installation limitations
Minimal water loss
Purge cycle can be automated, eliminating system depressurization, routine maintenance and downtime
SAFEGUARDS YOUR IN-WELL PUMPS FROM ABRASIVE SAND
LAKOS Pump Protection Separators (PPS) remove sand and grit that can threaten the performance and shorten the life of a submersible or turbine water well pump. Using a patented centrifugal design, PPS controls sand from entering the pump inlet before it can damage impellers, bearings, and other pump components. This keeps the pump operating at maximum efficiency while discharging separated sand deep into the well.
Made of durable carbon steel, PPS are designed without moving parts to wear out, and without screens or filter elements to clean and replace.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
Reduce pump wear, repair and replacement
Extend pump life by four times or more
Help maintain optimum pump yield
Save on energy costs through higher operating efficiency
Minimize critical pump breakdowns
Reduce the burden on other filtration and treatment process

THE OPEN SOURCE WATER SELF-CLEANING SOLUTION
LAKOS Self-cleaning pump intake screens (PC) protect pumps and other water systems components from surface water organics and debris. The screens provide continuous defense against impeller clogging, lost suction, and pump wear. The rugged, reliable internal backwash system blows debris off of and away from the screens, permitting water to flow freely to the pump. Other screens use a rotating spray bar and fixed position screen losing spray energy to rotate the spray bar. LAKOS employs a fixed spray bar, maximizing the water-energy’s cleaning action while the screen slowly rotates to continuously clean the entire screen surface.
PC Screens helps maintain pump efficiency, reducing the need for longer pumping cycles to deliver the required water volume.
WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
Rivers, effluent ponds, sumps, lakes, ponds, irrigation ditches, re-use pits, streams, tanks, canals, and more.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS:
Protect pumps and save energy by maintaining pump efficiency
No manual cleaning or routine shutdowns
Protect the surrounding environment from pump intakes
Constructed of durable reinforced fiberglass and stainless steel
