Key Facts

The Farmers Screen technology was created during a decade of research and development. It is proven to deliver consistent water to irrigators and hydropower facilities even under the most challenging conditions such as high gradients, heavy sediment, and wide flow ranges. All while protecting fish and reducing maintenance requirements costs.

Explore all the reasons the Farmers Screen may be right for your project…

 

ANY CFS

Farmers Screen can accommodate flow rates from 1 cfs to 250 cfs or more and is designed specifically to manage wide seasonal flow ranges.

NO MOVING PARTS

Farmers Screen operates without power and has no moving parts to break or jam.

SLASHES O & M COSTS

Farmers Screen is self-cleaning. Fouling and jamming are prevented with the Farmers Screen, which reduces on-going operation costs by as much as 95%.

MEETS NMFS CRITERIA

Farmers Screen has undergone eight rounds of extensive testing with government agencies, private labs, and Tribal entities to ensure fish stay safe. It meets or exceeds the highest level of federal standards for fish protection.

LOW HEAD LOSS

Only a 1 foot drop in elevation is needed for Farmers Screen to operate effectively.

DESIGN OPTIONS

Farmers Screen is available in a variety of designs—modular, dual, custom—to adapt to your site conditions and screening needs.

SUITABLE FOR VARIOUS SITE CONDITIONS

Farmers Screen is suitable for a diverse range of site conditions. Talk to one of our experts about your site’s challenges, or review our Siting Criteria.

WORKS IN REMOTE LOCATIONS

Our modular designs can be assembled on site in remote locations, with no concrete needed.

FCA SUPPORT

We back up our design with trusted expertise from start to finish with all installations.

MANAGES HIGH DEBRIS AND SEDIMENT LEVELS

Farmers Screen was developed specifically to handle high debris and sediment conditions. It effectively screens without clogging or fouling.

HORIZONTAL DESIGN

Farmers Screen uses hydraulics to manage debris and protect fish. The screen material lies horizontally, as opposed to vertically, allowing debris and fish to pass above the surface while screened water exits below.
