Self-Cleaning Intake Suction Screen

Description

When pumping water, it is important to keep equipment running smoothly and water flowing freely. Whether pumping water from a stream, canal, river, ditch, pit, sump, or pond, the water needs to be free of debris that could block water flow, damage the pump, clog water distribution equipment or damage process equipment.

The Self-Cleaning Intake Suction Screen is galvanized or epoxy coated and utilizes a heavy 12, 18, or 24 mesh, stainless steel screen designed to increase pump efficiency. The screen continuously removes debris from water. This saves time and money in fuel, pumping efficiency, and maintenance costs.

The suction strainer is attached to the end of the pump in the water source. All water pulled in must traverse the screen before entering the intake pipe. The screen stops debris from entering and causing costly maintenance requirements in the system. The pump discharge return line drives two spray bars that continually rotate, jet water at the screen, and blast debris away from the screen at 2.8 to 4.5 bar (40 to 65 psi) operating range.

The pump intake suction strainer has no external moving parts. It can be installed at any altitude without the operation being affected. The strainer is collapse- and corrosion-resistant and also has a standard flanged connection. Other connections are available upon request.
