The use of In-Line Guard Screens has become a favourable option due to the continuous downscaling of maintenance staff on mines. Our In-Line Guard Screens has earned its acceptance as part of a continuous process on processing plants. PrepQuip’s In-Line Guard Screen removes unwanted oversize material in water or slurry streams preventing blockages and protecting downstream equipment. In-Line Guard Screens are supplied as standard or customised units and can be operated manually or automatically. The In-Line Guard Screen line size ranges from 80 to 500mm (NB) and can handle capacities from 41 to 1590 m³/hr. A recent project proved the efficiency of the In-Line Guard Screen in removing particles in a firewater system which in turn prevents blockages of the fire hydrant nozzles.
