A front-clean, front-return, mechanically-cleaned bar screen technology. Utilizes stainless-steel tear-shaped bars with 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch, or 1/2 inch openings.
Duperon® FlexRake® FPFS: Features & Benefits
With no lower sprocket, FlexRake® technology allows all maintenance to be done from the deck; no jam points underwater to require diving or confined space entry.
Original FlexLinkTM multifunctional link system - with 4.5 lb. stainless steel cast links and an ultimate strength of 60,000 lbs. - provides unmatched durability. Many systems have been operating for more than 20 years.
Full Range Adaptability - Unhampered by Large Debris
Jam EvasionTM technology allows the FlexLinkTM multifunctional link system to lift and pivot around debris. This allows FlexRake® technology to adapt to a wide range of debris variations; from grit and grease to hard hats and sewer plugs. Positive location of the scrapers by the side frame assures continuous engagement.
The low horsepower requirements of the Sumitomo drive system ensure low-cost, energy-efficient debris removal.
Depending upon approach velocities, tear-shaped bars are 20% to 50% more efficient.
High Capture Rate
Unique to the industry, Thru-BarTM scrapers clean 3 sides of the bar as well as cross members.
Cleans to Channel Bottom
Eliminates residual debris buildup at the bottom of the screen; allows full use of channel depth for flow.
Five-year warranty for wastewater applications - an industry first.
