Submersible Pump Sand Protection
October 4, 2006
LAKOS Separators and Filtration Systems has redesigned its SUB-K separator, which protects submersible pumps from sand damage up to 100 gpm. Maintenance-free, the SUB-K separates sand from water wells before it enters the pump inlet, preventing damage to the pump's impellers and diffusers. Designed primarily for submersible pumps, the SUB-K must be set in the well at least 30 feet below the drawdown water level (when the pump is operating) and no less than 20 feet from the bottom of the well itself to allow ample room for discarded sand to settle.
