Vertical Water Screen for Pittsburgh, CA

Replacing a traveling water screen can be less expensive than a repair.

The City of Pittsburg, California looked at repairing their old FMC vertical traveling water screens, but the price was exorbitant… Until they contacted International Water Screens. Our quote for a new water screen was lower than the estimated price to repair the FMC screen.

After a year of operation they found that our design was much more efficient than the FMC screen. So, they decided to remove the second FMC Screen and install another International Water Screen in its place. Retrofitting water screens can offer a more economical solution than repair.
