Why is irrigation filtration necessary?
A necessary step of any sprinkler system is filtration. Any solids that pass through a sprinkler can cause wear and tear, even if it’s just small grains of sand. To be clear, there are sprinklers capable for dispensing solids. But, even they need to have solids that are too big for their systems to be filtered out. Irrigation filtration increases the lifespan of equipment and lessens the need for maintenance and repair.
Monitor filter clogging in the irrigation industry.
The Mid-West Instrument Model 146 Indicating Switch detects when the filter is clogged and provides a switch output. Once the switch has been activated, a back flush starts which helps remove and drain the sediments from the filter ensuring proper flow from the pumps to the irrigation sprinkler system.
