Cylinder Screens provide a very large screened surface area and are used in many river and lake intake applications.  Cylindrical screens are easily adapted to the intakes of pumping units and many retrofit applications.  Cylinder screens are generally placed above a river or lake bottom and need a minimum water depth of about twice the screen’s diameter.  Screen diameters between 2 to 8 feet are typical.  Multiple screen units can be manifolded together if necessary.

Cylindrical screens are also easily retrieved using a track system.
