RK2 System presents the award winning MultiCyclone filter. The MultiCyclone is a brilliant pre-filtration device that works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration and is designed with no moving parts and no filter media to clean or replace.
MultiCyclone pre-filters up to 80% of the filter's incoming dirt load easing the workload of the swimming pool filter. As the MultiCyclone intercepts more and more dirt, the flow rate remains unchanged.
The installation of a MultiCyclone as a pre-filter to a sand filter can reduce its backwash frequency, resulting in a saving of up to 1850 gallons of water per year for an average pond or water feature.
The installation of a MultiCyclone as a pre-filter to a cartridge filter can reduce filter cartridge cleaning and replacement.
The MultiCyclone works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration. There are no moving parts to wear and tear, and no filter media to clean or replace.
*Note: The MultiCyclone is designed to filter sediment that is heavier than water; floating debris cannot be filtered out by centrifugal filtration.
The MultiCyclone is easily cleaned by opening its purge valve. Only 4 gallons of water is discharged to cleanse the MultiCyclone.
MultiCyclone is covered by a 2 year warranty and 1 year warranty on labor. Commercial installations are covered by a 1 year warranty. The RK2 System MultiCyclone is designed to work effectively with RK2 System's extensive range of pumps and filters.
|Model||Connection Ports||Minimum Flow||Maximum Flow||Maximum Pressure|
|RK-MC-12||1.5"/40mm||10gpm/40 lpm||79gpm/300 lpm||50psi/350 kPai|
|RK-MC-16||2.0"/50mm||13gpm/50 lpm||132gpm/500 lpm||50psi/350 kPai|
|Maximum flow is limited by the surface area of the filter cartridge. Residential Cartridge Design Filtration Rate: 41 lpm/m2 (1gpm/ft2)|
Note: When a RK2 System MultiCyclone Centrifugal Water Filter is installed within a pond filtration system it is strongly recommended that no granular pond chemicals are added to the pond water through the pond skimmer box, unless there is the option to bypass the MultiCyclone.
Note: All pond chemical or additives are to be added to the pond water as instructed by the manufacturer's procedures, only.
MultiCyclone Ultra combines centrifugal and cartridge filtration into one streamline housing, creating an ultra compact filtration system that can be vertically installed on a pond pump.
Incoming water tangentially enters its multiple hydrocyclones, generating a strong centrifugal effect. Approximately 80% of the incoming dirt load is spiraled down to its clear sediment chamber. The outgoing water is finally polished via its inbuilt cartridge filter, producing crystal clear water.
As MultiCyclone Ultra's centrifugal section filter pre-filters up to 80% of the incoming dirt load, the capacity of its 75 ft2 filter cartridge is magnified by up to 5 times.
MultiCyclone Ultra's sediment chamber is easily cleaned by opening its purge valve. Only 5 gallons of water is discharged.
MultiCyclone Ultra's streamlined design means the entire filtration system can be installed vertically, reducing the footprint of the equipment pad. Additionally, minimal pipework reduces the filtration system's overall head loss. Alternatively the MultiCyclone Plus can be installed next to the pump by using an optional support base.
MultiCyclone Ultra is covered by a 2 year warranty and 1 year warranty on labor. Commercial installations are covered by a 1 year warranty.
