Duperon FlexRake FPFS bar screen withstands significant flooding at the City of Cuero, Texas, during Hurricane Harvey last year.

Despite the destruction of Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, Duperon® wastewater screening systems in the cities of Cuero and Refugio, Texas – approximately 150 miles southwest of Houston – were virtually unaffected by the storm. Duperon’s FlexRake® bar screens, installed at both locations as well as dozens of other sites in and around Houston, remove objects like rags, paper, plastics, and metals to prevent damage and clogging of downstream treatment equipment. Both communities found essentially no damage to their wastewater screening equipment.
