Sand Filters and Large Basins


The YT-800 is an electricity-operated remote-controlled submersible robot for cleaning large underwater surfaces, such as the bottom of a sand filter. The powerful pump and wide nozzle make it possible to clean large areas in a relatively short time. The sediment is pumped through a hose to a designated point of discharge, such as a sand treatment station. Traditional cleaning using loading machines & conveyor belts require costly investment, and manual filter cleaning is very labour intensive. Both methods require that the filter is drained and taken offline. With the YT-800, cleaning can be carried out during full operation.


Easily operated by one person, the YT-800 is remotely controlled using a radio hand box. The vehicle can be equipped with underwater cameras to facilitate long-distance operation from a van, operations room, or other remote location. Using the YT-800 reduces cleaning costs and does not interrupt distribution. YT-800 has only electrical motors and uses no dangerous oils or chemicals that could damage the filter.


Other applications for the YT-800 include cleaning infiltration dams and surface cleaning large outdoor basins.
