Pump Suction Screen

Whether pumping water from a cooling tower basin, pit or sump, you need the water to be free of trash and debris that could block water flow and damage the pump or clog water-distribution equipment. The Yardney Pump Suction Screen is designed to filter these larger contaminants on the intake piping to allow other equipment such as pumps or primary filtration units to run smoothly without clogging. Our self-cleaning screen is designed to continuously remove trash and debris from water sources saving you time, fuel and maintenance costs. Pump suction screens can be used for industrial centrifugal or turbine pump applications, cooling tower basins and more.
