IMG+ Series Filters

Hydraulic Suction Scanning Screen Filter

Economy and Value with Lower Backwash Volumes

Rain Bird IMG+ Series Filters are self-cleaning hydraulic suction scanning screen filters that are powered by source line water pressure. They provide worry free low to medium-flow rate filtration for industrial and municipal water sources.

The IMG+ Series water filters are ideal where large debris from source water is not a concern. The filter's backwashing system produces a concentrated high velocity and low volume reverse water flow to systematically clean the sintered wire mesh screen of any entrapped contaminants. These IMG+ Series filters house a single fine screen and achieve specified water quality in one step.

Models are available as a filter unit only or as a filter assembly in cluding bypass plumbing and valves, for fast and easy installation on site.
