July 5, 2011 - Providing corrosion resistance in brackish, brine, and seawater filtration applications, FRP Series features wetted components constructed from plastic and high alloy materials. Filters are available with on-line or in-line flange configuration and are rated to 150 psi. Supporting working pressures from 35-150 psi and flow rate from 15-20,000 gpm, filters use coarse screens for straining large debris and fine screens for purifying water to designated 5-4,000 micron rating.

Press release date: June 23, 2011

Forsta Filters' exciting new FRP Series offers an ideal solution for corrosion resistance in brackish, brine and seawater filtration applications. All wetted components of the FRP Series self-cleaning filters are constructed from seawater-resistant plastic and other high alloy materials, making it the only one of its kind. The FRP Series filters can withstand pressures up to 150 psi and feature all the same great benefits of Forsta Filters' stainless steel self-cleaning water filters.

Forsta's FRP Series self-cleaning water filters are available with an on-line, or in-line flange configuration to accommodate simple installation, and easily integrate with any pipeline. A two-stage screening process distinguishes the FRP Series filters. A coarse screen is responsible for straining out large debris from the water source, and the fine screen purifies water to the designated micron rating. As with all Forsta self-cleaning filters, the FRP filter's short backwash cycle never interrupts the main system flow.

Filter Characteristics:
  • Flow Rate: 15-20,000 gpm
  • Flush cycle duration: 6 - 12 seconds
  • Flush valve size: single 1" or a single 2"
  • Screen opening: 5 - 4000
  • Temperature: 210F
  • Flush Volume: 2- 50 gallons per backwash
  • Working pressure: 35- 150 psi * Patent Pending
