Anyone who pumps liquid for any purpose (irrigation, industrial, or private and public water systems) knows their greatest enemy is sand, silt, grit or other solid particles. These elements reduce efficiency of equipment by plugging and clogging sprinklers, drip emitters, valves and spray nozzles. They also cost time and money in repairs, replacement parts, downtime, wasted energy, and a loss of productivity. Decreased efficiency is also a major problem as equipment gradually clogs up or wears out, lowering productivity until replacement occurs. Sand Water Separation is the method used for the removal of unwanted, heavier solids in all processes with the help of our Sand Eliminator which is the centrifugal separator.

The Sand Eliminator removes sand and other solids from pumped water and other fluids. There are no screens, cartridges, or filter elements. The key to removing solids is centrifugal action. As water enters the sand eliminator, it immediately transfers from the outer chamber to the inner chamber through tangential slots. Those slots maintain the centrifugal action in the same direction and accelerate the water into a smaller diameter chamber. That allows centrifugal action to do what gravity would do over time. So, the performance of an sand eliminator is predicated on the weight of a particle, and not on its size. A rule of thumb is that if the particle matter or sediment would settle within three to four minutes in still water, then those particles are separable in the sand eliminator. Once those particles get pushed to the outside, they will gradually fall down the perimeter, past the deflector plate, and into the collection chamber. While the centrifugal action creates an outward pressure, there is also a low pressure at the center. Water follows the lowest pressure, the vortex of that tornado, and migrates upward to the center of the eliminator to a smaller diameter pipeā€”the vortex outlet. So all the water goes in, dirt is spun to the bottom, clean water spirals up the operative eliminator, and the particles fall to the collection chamber, where they are either periodically or continually purged from the sand eliminator to evacuate the unit.
