HCF Series 36" Laminated Sand Filter



The HCF Series Sand Filter is engineered to stand the test of time. An optimized internal and external design improves filter cycle times, accuracy, install times and reduces maintenance while increasing durability against compromising elements.


The HCF Series Filters feature an improved internal and external design that enhances performance and endurance. The filters distribute water more evenly with a multi-diffuser configuration, increasing filter cycles, effectiveness, and longevity of the filter. Installation and maintenance are easier than ever before. A transparent manway simplifies operation and the UV-protected and infusion molded fiberglass shell reduces corrosion and shields the unit from the elements, such as blooming and biofilm build up.

• Multi-diffuser distribution heads and oversized laterals improve filtration and lengthen filter cycle
• UV-protected gel coat protects from the elements
• High performance filtration and longer service life
• Transparent manway design simplifies operation
• Dual-Head (HCF230) or Quad-Head (HCF234 and HCF236) Diffusers provide optimized water distribution
• Commercial-grade PVC and ABS injection-molded internals with 360° slotted lateral provide high performance and resistance in corrosive applications
• Industrial valve and pressure gauge configuration offer durability and increased accuracy
• 34″ model fits through standard 36″ doorways with no need to remove the door frame, simplifying replacement installations
• New warranty policy; 5-year parts, 1-year labor
• NSF/ANSI Standard 50 Certified
