ACME ACRS Automatic Scraper Strainers

ACME ACRS Automatic Scraper Strainers are used in nearly every industry to strain river, lake or seawater intakes for plant cooling water, fire protection and process requirements. The Strainer is a motorized unit designed for the continuous removal of suspended solids from intake, process and wastewater flows.

These units can handle heavy solids loading with particles as small as 75 microns and as large as 150mm (6" stones). Strainers have been installed on applications where backwash strainers have suffered premature clogging, such as black liquor, heavy oils, wax, unprotected river water intakes and boiler waste slurries.

Cleaning is accomplished by a spring-loaded blade and brush system managed by a fully automatic control system. The blades remove larger solids while the brush cleans out the individual slots of the wedgewire filtration element, removing smaller particles. The spring-loaded mechanism maintains blade and brush contact with the screen at all times. A separate blowdown timer allows the accumulated solids to be expelled from the bottom of the strainer vessel where they are collected during the scraping cycle. The strainers are available in sizes 2" through 36" in fabricated construction using carbon steel, stainless steel and assorted alloys.

The Acme ACRS Automatic Scraper Strainers are used in the following industries and applications:
