Protect your downstream equipment from hazardous debris with reliable Amwell bar screens. Choose from stainless or carbon steel construction with widths from 1 ft. to 7 ft. and depths to 30 ft. All units feature shaft mounted direct drives controlled by either timers or differential liquid level controllers. Pivoted designs allow the entire mechanism to pivot out of the channel for ease of maintenance. Front cleaned screens can be vertical or inclined at 75° or 84°.

Standard screen openings are 1/2" to 1 1/2". Screen rakes are driven by your choice of stainless steel, cast iron or polymer coated chain with metallic or non-metallic sprockets. All bar screens are fully assembled and thoroughly shop tested to insure trouble-free operation prior to shipment. Units can be fabricated in sections to allow installation in existing structures.
