Rusco Sediment Filters
Select your Rusco sediment filter, Rusco water filter, or Rusco replacement part below. Rusco filtration systems use unique separation technology to separate sediment particles from your water supply. Rusco filter systems are available in 13 different mesh sizes to filter out larger sediment particles before they damage household appliances or industrial machines. The Rusco filter screen elements can be cleaned and reused without tools. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you cannot find your Rusco water filters.

What mesh size/micron ratings do the Rusco filter screens come in?
How to use a Rusco sediment filter for irrigation or heavy organic sediment:
Use a large Rusco sediment filter such as the Rusco 2-30-F
. On surface water applications with organic matter, leave the ball valve partially open. This will flush out the grass and other organic material continuously during operation.
Do you have any guidelines for the mesh size that I should use for my application?
MESH SELECTION: The information shown here is general in nature because of the many variations in shape, size and specific gravity of the materials being filtered.
|Material in Water ||To Protect ||Use Mesh # |
|Shale, shell ||General Use ||24 |
|Debris ||General Use ||24,30,40 |
|Pipe scale, Course sand ||Sprinkler Systems, faucet aerators, sand sensitive valves ||40-60 |
|Fine sand, Grit from new wells ||Drip irrigation systems, faucet aerators, sand sensitive valves |
Poultry growers, watering devices (.010)
|Very fine sand and grit ||Pre-treatment |
Pre-treatment, ultra water systems, R.O. etc.
|Algae ||Grows in presence of light under clear filter cover ||Use a Sun Shield |
| In general, use the coarsest screen deemed necessary to filter the material you want removed. This will result in longer runs between blow-downs. |
