The STEPSCREEN® has the highest hydraulic capacity of any fine screen due to its larger open surface area when compared to any other Fine Screen technology. Stepscreens works well for plant expansions replacing coarse screens. Depending on length and location, many Stepscreens can be designed to pivot out for easy maintenance. Traditional Stepscreens are installed between 45° and 53°. Huber manufactures a special version of the step screen, the Step Screen Vertical or SSV, which can be used for deep channel applications of up to 22 ft. The specially designed lamellae allow the screen to be installed of up to 75°, thus achieving high discharge heights.
