Scan-Kleen Screen Filters

Scan-Kleen Screen Filters offer quick and easy manual cleaning without flow interruption. To clean, just open the flush valve and turn the handle to rotate the dirt collector. The combination of rotation and linear movement scans and cleans the whole internal screen surface. Water flow to the field is not interrupted during the cleaning process. A stainless steel screen provides strength and long life durability.

Product Advantages

  • Easy to clean – no need to manually disassemble, clean screen and reassemble the filter.
  • Water flow to the field is not interrupted during cleaning.
  • Corrosion-proof high density polypropylene will not rust or corrode like metal filters.
  • Operates efficiently at varied flow rates.


  • Primary filter on well water with small amounts of sand
  • Primary filter for center pivots
  • Reservoir water with small amounts of algae
  • Back-up filter for:
    • Media filter batteries
    • Sand separators

Scan-Kleen Screen Filters Operation

Filtration Operation

Water enters the filter through the inlet and reaches the screen (1) which traps the particles from the water. As more water flows through, debris builds up on the screen. As debris accumulates on the screen, a pressure differential builds up between the internal and external sections of the screen.




Flushing Operation

When the pressure differential reaches the determined value (7-10 psi), the filter should be cleaned. Water continues to flow through the filter during the cleaning process.

  • Opening the flushing valve (4) allows water to flow out of the filter
  • Suction occurs through the nozzles (6) which vacuums the debris from the screen (1) and out the drain port
  • Turning the handle (3) slowly rotates the dirt collector (2) resulting in full scanning of the screen by the nozzles. Slower rotation cleans the screen more efficiently.

This combination of rotation and linear movement cleans the whole internal screen surface. The flushing cycle takes about 10 seconds.
