AquaShear Water Intake Screen

 

bwm-aquashear-large-The Aqua Shear Screen utilizes a combination of shear and Coanda Effect. As the water flows across each horizontal wire, a portion is sheared or "sliced" at each slot to be passed to the useful purpose of the diversion. Solids larger than the slot are flushed past the screen. The standard slot opening is 1.0 mm. Screens with larger or smaller openings can be manufactured on special order. Liquid/solids separation is further enhanced by the Coanda Effect; that is, the phenomenon whereby fluids tend to follow a solid surface. A specially designed acceleration plate provides for both an even distribution of flow across the screen and an increase in velocity of the fluid for more effective liquid/solid separation.
