Water Intake & Water Treatment

Turning the Tide in the Water Industry

Quality Screens for Water Intake and Treatment

Hendrick Screen offers various options — such as T-intakes, half intakes, drum screens and flat panels — all designed to be 316(b) compliant. Additionally, we have an engineering group dedicated to water intake screens, thus ensuring you have the right screen for your particular application.

Hendrick manufactures cost-effective water intake solutions in stainless steel or copper-nickel. We produce intake screens in multiple sizes and configurations, including half intakes for shallow water conditions. A customizable Airburst system is available to optimize performance and reduce cleaning costs. Our products are National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) approved and 316(b) compliant.

Screens for the Water Intake and Treatment Market

Hendrick produces passive water intake screens for withdrawing water from lakes, rivers, streams and reservoirs. Our proprietary Profile Bar and resistance-welded wedge wire intake screen designs result in less debris and reduced clogging for a smoother water flow. With more than 40 years of technical experience, we can offer a solution for any situation you encounter.

About Passive Screening

Passive screening admits water through the intake point at a low, uniform velocity. Water passes through the screen while debris and aquatic life remain in the water. Screens may be placed far from the shore for better water quality and lower concentrations of marine life and debris. With no moving parts, passive screens are reliable and easy to maintain. 

Our Water Intake Products

Hendrick manufactures T-intake screens with flexible, cost-effective designs. Flow modifiers maximize flow equalization, reduce head loss and minimize costs. For shallow-water applications, we offer a patented* half-barrel intake screen. This screen has the same flow characteristics as the T-intake screens, but it’s designed for shallow creeks and rivers where the full-size version won’t work.

Drum-style screens are ideal for use when the water current passing the screen is very low (such as in quiet waters, lakes and reservoirs), for low water withdrawals, and in tight spaces. These screens are mounted with the flat or curved surface on the top to prevent debris from collecting on the screened surface.

Our Airburst cleaning system assures trouble-free, uninterrupted operation in high-debris environments or where inadequate water currents cause a buildup of sediment and organic matter on the intake screen that gradually restricts water flow. The Airburst system effectively removes the debris through a rapid release of high-pressure air. It’s fully customizable and available with your choice of automatic or manual controls.

Why Hendrick?

Hendrick Screen, a leading manufacturer of passive water intake screens, has more than four decades of experience and technical expertise in resistance-welded and Profile Bar screens.
