The SCS self cleaning intake screen is used when there is a need to filter out floating debris in water intake systems, that could block the water flow or clog up pumps and water distribution systems. The SCS self cleaning suction strainer is a constantly rotating intake screen. The rotating movement is maintained by diverting a small amount of the total flow back into the strainer. This pressure flow will flush the debris off the screen and force the strainer into its rotating movement. If the pump pressure is too low, or in case of gravity feed, an auxiliary booster pump is recommended to supply the cleaning flow rate.
