Details on a travelling belt screen returned from the Caribbean to Europe for refurbishment after 16 years of operation. It is installed at the sea water inlet sump of a large sea water cooled diesel power station. This is to prevent debris, including marine life, being taken in by the seawater pumps, eliminating damage to the pumps and blockages to the sea water cooling circuit. The screen has a capacity of 2000 cu.metres/hour and a 6mm filtration slot. The screen is automatically cleaned by the travelling belt.

Photographs below relate to a travelling belt screen installed at the sea water inlet sump of a large sea water cooled diesel power station. This is to prevent debris, including marine life, being taken in by the seawater pumps, eliminating damage to the pumps and blockages to the sea water cooling circuit.

This particular screen has just been refurbished after sixteen (16) years of service, and controls updated to the latest specification. It has a capacity of 2000 cu.metres/hour and a 6mm filtration slot. The screen is automatically cleaned by the travelling belt, and the trash collected by the belt is discharged above and to the side of the sump for ultimate disposal.

GDM Lindex can supply water to water and air to water cooling equipment – EG: pumps, heat exchangers, radiators, valves etc.
