Generator powered traveling water screen solutions

Traveling water screen with spray bar

Our standard traveling screen or fish screen has an internal spray bar with pressurized water that will blow off the debris that doesn’t fall off of the belting. International Water Screens will provide a pump for this pressurized water, or we can use domestic or fire water for the spray..

Traveling water screen conveyor/elevator

The elevator has a conveyor belt that lifts debris from the water, as the water flows past. The conveyor drops the collected material for collection. A spray bar helps remove debris from the screen.

Traveling water screen debris collection

Any floating debris can be removed. Floating plant matter, storm detritus, algae, construction material, or garbage that normally collects in waterways. Removing debris prevents clogged pipelines, protects pumps, and can be designed for various types of debris.

Different sites have different debris problems, and different ways to remove the debris must be adapted to local conditions.

Traveling water screens for algae and aquatic plant removal

Algae and rapidly growing plants like Water Hyacinth can quickly clog waterways if they aren’t removed. International Water Screens can design a system to address your area’s specific problems.
