ELIZABETH, NJ (January 24, 2012) — Hayward’s line of HCF Series Commercial Sand Filters has been further strengthened for 2012. Incorporating several new high-end features and a new 34” model for the renovation market, Hayward has once again taken the technical lead in this key Commercial product category.

In 2009, Hayward Commercial reset the bar for high performance quality sand filters for the Commercial market. The 30” and 36” HCF models featured an infusion molded, gel-coated thermoset fiberglass structure complemented with oversized, grid-array laterals to improve filtration and lengthen filter cycle time. The 2012 line up builds on this design incorporating a new rapid open/close tool-free lid mechanism featuring a 14” x 18” industrial-grade lid and yoke assembly, the lid even has 2 viewing windows to allow visual inspection while the filter is in operation. When open, the manway is an unprecedented, massive 12” x 16” for easy media loading and filter inspection. Self-leveling injection molded support legs are permanently bonded to the tank and are suitable for Zone 4 seismic conditions.

A new 34” diameter filter has also added to the range. Able to fit easily through any standard 36” door frame, this filter combines high performance, capacity, convenience and low cost of installation benefits when retro-fitting old/obsolete filters.

According to Patrick Sweeney, “Since its introduction in 2009, our HCF Series Commercial Sand Filters has been universally well received. Pool operators and managers really appreciate the rugged design and category-leading performance. The new features being launched in this year’s 2012 model offer some really exciting new benefits, the massive manway offers users and servicers a new level of convenience and ease of operation not presently available on competitive alternatives. The 34” diameter filter is a direct response to our Customers requests. When removing and replacing older filters, it is often the case that the replacement will not fit through the equipment room door. No problem with the HCF343 series, it passes through a standard 36” door with no need to incur additional costs removing the door and door frame, it really is the ideal remodel filter.”
