A brushless motor drives the Schreiber Wastewater Fine Screen, approved for use in Class I, Division II areas per NEC. The bars of two grids—one movable and one stationary—alternate throughout the unit. The bars of the stationary grid convey the screenings upward in a stepwise manner, preventing screenings from being forced through the screen. At the top of the screen, a self-cleaning motion discharges the screenings, eliminating the need for supplemental cleaning devices. The Fine Screen has no anchor points below the waterline, and the screen itself swings out of the channel for ease of maintenance. For washing and compacting of the screenings after capture, the Schreiber washer/compactor is an excellent complement.

The Fine Screen is available to fit channels up to 5’ in depth and 18″ to 48″ in width, with a flow rate up to 14 MGD. The standard size of screen opening for the Hydro Grid is 6mm (0.24″).
