Passive intake screen systems

Passive water intake system is an environmental friendly solution for water abstraction specially designed to protect aquatic life and meet fish protection regulations, such as the European Eel Directive. Considering your project specification ANDRITZ Euroslot engineers will provide a design totally adapted with:

  • Low impact on wild life and environment
    • Low through slot velocity (max 0,15m/s) - All our products meet USA and UK laws for fish protection
    • Totally submerged static filters invisible within the landscape

  • Limited maintenance cost
    • V-Shaped profile wire for, low pressure drop, less clogging and longer filtration cycles
    • Available as an option ANDRITZ Euroslot can also deliver an autonomous air backwash system to remove leaves and other debris from the surface of the screen in order to maintain process flow.

  • High Durable
    • Totally welded structure
    • Wide range of metal alloys and materials proposed to limit corrosion risks and to minimize biofouling from invasive species such as Zebra mussels
    • Perfect build quality for a long lifetime and a failure-free water intake process

Gravitary filters (Underdrains)

Gravitary filters by ANDRITZ are a cost-effective and stable solution for filtration plants. Its’ main purpose is to maintain filtering media (sand , activated carbon,…), drain filtered water and ensure good and even distribution of air and water during backwash phases

The stainless steel construction offers the following advantages:

  • High open area for an optimized  filtration cycle
  • No maintenance needed
  • Very strong construction

Air backwash system

Air backwash system for distances of up to 2000 meters. Some applications in shallow water may require installation of the intake far from the air backwash system. ANDRITZ Euroslot delivers proven design for short or long distance with a complete and ready to install air backwash system, working automatically to prevent excessive pressure drops and maintain a steady water flow through the intake.

  • Specific material (CuNi) or Chlorination injection system to limit biofouling
  • Completely or partially removable intake for manual cleaning operations on shore
  • Structural calculations referring to seismic conditions, wave effects (FEA)or hydraulic throughputs (CFD calculations)
