The Micro Sand Trap

The Micro Sand Trap (Patent 7600911)The “Micro” Sand Trap is a patented design to replace the cartridge type “inline” filter. It’s a unique way to separate and settle out sand, shale and oxidized organics found in some water supplies. This is achieved by running the water through an internal swirl chamber, then into a diverting plate. This will allow the particles to settle to the bottom of the housing for blow down.

The “Micro Sand Trap” uses the same technology as it’s big brothers but is a smaller, less expensive style.


Features of the system:

  • No filter cartridges
  • never needs to be opened (just blow down at drain)
  • No moving parts
  • No back washing needed
  • 1” inlet and outlet
  • 3/4” drain for blow down
  • Optional wall bracket available
