Drum Screens



The Novotec drum screen unit offers the efficiency of a curved screen system with an even higher reliability and care free operation. Using the same type of filter treatment, the drum screen adds an automatic cleaning system. Water flows through the filter drum and coarse materials are retained. A motor turns the filter automatically, so it can be cleaned by a scraper unit. A supplementary spraying system keeps the filter mesh clear of any particles wedged in the mesh. The filter residue is collected  in a central container, without any need of manual intervention.
