Vertical Sand Filter

Fluidtrol Process Technologies, Inc. manufactures several models of High Rate Sand Filters. This sand filter is designed to be installed Vertically, as such it has a smaller footprint. Like our Horizontal sand filters, the Vertical filter uses parallel in-flow and out-flow 6 inch plumbing.


  • Rugged vertical design is made of thick walled PVC and never needs replacement.
  • Preinstalled diffusers should never need maintenance.
  • Load filter without going inside, reduces time and cost.
