Rusco 1-200STSS-F Stainless Steel Screened Sediment Trapper System
Rusco 1-200STSS-F Stainless Steel Screened Sediment Trapper System use centrifugal separation technology to filter sediment from water. It features a unique element design that traps sediment in the lower reservoir of the clear cover. The debris settles in the bottom of the clear cover away from the filter screen. This Trapper system should be used over the Rusco Spin-Down model when there is heavy sediment in the water supply. It is made of high impact polymer resin for maximum strength and durability. The top of the Rusco system is made of PVC. Made from molded non-corrosive materials, the system has a stainless steel screen filter and is cleanable and reusable. Also, it features a clear cover that can easily be removed for cleaning. It doesn’t require any tools to remove the cover. It is visible through the clear cover indicating when the filter needs to be flushed. It has an open ball valve to easily flush sediment.
When the Rusco filter is full of sediment, simply open the ball valve to flush the sediment. It is designed to remove all types of sediment, including shale, shell, debris, pipe scale, and sand/grit (course, fine, and very fine).The amount of sediment removed will depend on the micron rating of the filter screen. Smaller micron rated filter screens will remove smaller particles of sediment from your water. By removing larger sediment particles from your water, you can extend the life of appliances and filter cartridges. The maximum temperature is 100 degrees F. (93C) at 40 PSI. Use approved solvent cement for gluing PVC connections. Follow gluing instructions on glue container. It is recommended that the clear cover be removed from the pvc body prior to the gluing process. Any excess glue that comes in contact with the clear cover will damage it. The Rusco filter screens should be cleaned every few months. No tools are required for cleaning.
The filter screen should be replaced every 6-12 months depending on your water usage and water quality. The primary method of cleaning the Rusco filter is purging separated solids through the flush valve while the filter is under system pressure. The purging process can be done manually with the flush valve or automated with our optional Automatic Flush Valve. The filter element may need to be removed and cleaned. To remove the filter element, turn off the water supply, drain water pressure, unscrew the clear cover and remove the filter element. Wash off collected sediment by spraying with water. Remove fine particles wedged in the screen with a soft brush. Apply silicone grease to o-rings if needed and reassemble. Hand tighten only.
