Screen (Perforated Plate) – Duperon

In 1995, Duperon Corporation created a new screening segment in the wastewater market with the introduction of the Duperon® FlexRake®. The designed simplicity of this multi-rake screen earned its own U.S. Patent for solutions to many operator challenges: no lower sprockets, bearings, or guide tracks for in-channel maintenance; no alignment issues; no jamming; and high operation and maintenance costs. Now, more than 20 years later, Duperon continues to hold that engineered simplicity as its standard of design.

The Duperon® FlexRake® Sentinel PFE follows this tradition, with more than eight years of research, development, and in-field testing to assure the elimination of common fine-screening issues. The Sentinel offers patented solutions to assure efficient debris removal without the challenges common to perforated screens: no blinding; no stapling; and no carryover. Whether you’re selecting a perforated screen for increased debris removal and efficiency or to protect downstream processes, the Duperon® FlexRake® Sentinel stands at the ready.

Absolute Protection:

Uses a fixed-element screen, which provides absolute protection for downstream processes (even in the event of a mechanical failure).

Active Hydropression™:

Cleans each individual hole by managing the hydrostatic pressure, which allows efficient low-volume, low-pressure jet cleaning. Proven effective against clogging, stapling, and blinding.

Corrugated Screen:

The corrugated geometry of the screen increases screen strength and provides improved headloss dynamics compared to flat screens.

Proven FlexLink™ Technology:

Duperon® Perforated Plate screens employ proven FlexLink technology which has been used for decades on FlexRakes.

Millennial™ Platform:

The modular Millennial Platform supports future design developments and makes it possible to make changes to meet future process requirements.
