Bar Screen Screentec


A bar screen is a filter system designed to to remove objects such as rags, wipes and plastics, from wastewater and protect pumps from clogging. It is the first level of filtration used by wastewater treatment plants.

Aqualitec's bar screen Screentec is an automatic vertical bar screen specifically designed for headworks, pump stations, lift stations, wet wells and manholes. It protects pumps from rags, wipes, plastics and other solids. It also prevents pumps from clogging up, extends their life cycle and improves the quality of wastewater treatment.

Screentec can be installed in many applications, including Headworks, Lift Stations, Deep Wells and Manholes. Thanks to its mechanical vertical design, it can retrofit any kind of structure with minimal or no changes. Screentec fits into narrow and deep structures, avoiding costly structural changes. It does not have any moving parts under grade level, providing easy and safe maintenance for the operational staff. Watch the bar screen video above to learn more about Screentec.

OPERATING MODE

1. A rake, set up on a sturdy belt, moves downward following two guide rails on each side of the frame.

2. The rake collects all the material trapped by the bar screen.

3. The rake travels upward, lifting up all the collected material.

4. Collected material can be ejected into a washer/compactor, such as Compactec, or directly into a dumpster.

BAR SCREEN FEATURES AND BENEFITS

1. Vertical Design.
With a 90° installation angle, Screentec can fit any wastewater structure, up to 50' deep.

2. Minimal & Easy Maintenance.
Screentec does not have moving parts at the bottom of the frame. Weekly maintenance consists only of a visual check of the top section of the frame. Grate-level access via the secure hood minimizes operator time, risk, and expense.

3. Odor Control.
The frame of the vertical bar screen is completely enclosed. Adding a washer-compactor with a bagger system, such as Compactec, maintains total odor control. Screentec can be installed in residential areas without risk of odor complaint.
