Trapping the sand
The Sand Trap from Automated Pure Water Inc., of Vero Beach, Fla., is a unique way to separate and settle out sand, shale and oxidized organics found in some water supplies. This is done by running the water through an internal swirl chamber and then into a diverting plate. This allows heavier particles to settle to the bottom of the tank for blow down. Features of the system include no moving parts, no backwashing, no electricity required, no filter cartridges to clean or replace, and a high flow rate of 24 gpm.
