180 Series self-cleaning water filters have a parallel flange configuration to accommodate simple installation. The 180 Series automatic water filter will integrate with any straight pipeline.

180 Series industrial water filters are distinguished by a two-stage screening process. Each water filtration system contains a coarse screen and a fine screen.
