These Farmers Screen installations provide excellent examples of the features and benefits of the dual configuration Farmers Screen.

Dual Configuration Farmers Screens

Meeting fish protection standards through the entire range of expected flows for a diversion can be difficult.  In order to address this issue, FCA designed a dual screen configuration for the Farmers Screen.  During low flows, only one screen is operated but as flows increase, the second screen bay can be activated to maintain proper velocities and debris management.
