Brackett Green - Static Screen
Brackett Green static screens are an efficient and inexpensive method for protecting downstream equipment and processes from debris and disintegrating cooling tower elements that can be found in flow streams.
The Brackett Green static screen is used in a variety of applications, including circulating cooling water for power, chemical and petroleum plants. The Brackett Green static screen simple design makes it an ideal choice for upgrading existing schemes by using bolt-on guides, or for new plant designs using embedded guides.
Two Brackett Green static screens are typically installed in series: a spare screen is lowered into place to continue screening while the upstream screen is cleaned. Screening is performed with wire mesh panels attached to a supporting framework and includes a debris pan on the lower cross member for capturing loose debris as the screens are raised.
Mesh sizes range from 5mm to 15mm square openings, and are usually electro-galvanized, 304 or 316 stainless steel. Frames are available in either epoxy coated carbon steel, 304L or 316L stainless steel. Other materials can be provided on request.
Brackett Green static screens are available in widths ranging from 1m to 5m and are custom designed for each site. Screen heights vary with each installation: they can extend to deck level, or can be used in conjunction with a lifting beam to automatically engage and disengage from the screen during raising and lowering operations.
