Self-Cleaning Pump Intake Screens
Protect pumps and water systems from surface
water organics & debris
Wherever unprotected pump intakes are threatened by organic
debris and other troublesome floating solids, LAKOS ISF Screens
provide a continuous, intelligent defense against clogging,
lost suction and pump wear. A rugged, reliable internal backwash
system blows debris off of and away from the screen, allowing
water to flow freely to the pump (see illustration at right).
Wide range of applications
Rivers, effluent ponds, sumps, lakes, re-use pits, streams,
tanks, canals, etc.
For centrifugal, turbine and submersible types:
Safeguards against damage to impellers and restricted suction/cavitation.
Helps maintain pump efficiency, reducing the need to pump
longer to deliver required water volume. Continuously clean
screen eliminates potential head/pressure loss.
Continuous cleaning performance means no manual cleaning of
stationary screens or routine system shutdowns.
Low-velocity operation keeps fish, mussels, clams, etc. out
of pump intakes.
Strong, deep-ribbed, reinforced fiberglass frame. Stainless
steel end caps. Choice of corrosion-resistant stainless steel
screen mesh or algae growth-inhibiting phosphor bronze screen
