AWMA were engaged to supply and deliver three Debris Screens for an irrigation intake project in New Zealand. Three screens with 1.7mm slot width were required. Two for an Intake Canal, 2400mm wide by 9200mm long. The other 3200mm wide by 9200mm long, was installed on a Pond Outlet.
The self-cleaning Travelling Screens can be manufactured to virtually any width or length and can be installed at a variety of angles to facilitate debris removal.
The innovative chainless screen design and unique engineered polymer material delivers lower ownership costs, operational efficiencies and reliable performance.
The engineered polymer screens are proven to last up to five times longer than steel. The positive-drive system, requires no chains, is driven by direct sprocket engagement and virtually eliminates uneven wear and mistracking.
Apart from the screen mesh the system contains no submerged moving parts and requires almost no unscheduled maintenance or downtime.
The modular design allows repairs to be made on site with reduced operational costs. Screens are designed to remain in the water year round with the capability of operating continuously (24/7/365) when required with reduced risk of biofouling.
