Duperon Corporation was established 30 years ago, giving an official home to the screening technologies created by founder Terry Duperon. Today, despite its growth and expanded product lines, Duperon Corporation still operates under the same philosophy as the first day: “Two parts is one part too many.” The simplicity driving this approach to product development still guides Duperon design, leading to preliminary liquids/solids separation technologies that lead the market in ease of maintenance and cost of ownership. Today, the Duperon FlexRake operates in more than 1,000 installations across North America and internationally.

Duperon Corporation, operating from Saginaw, Michigan, since 1985, has expanded its product line to include liquids/solids separation technologies for coarse, fine and perforated screening, as well as associated technologies such as the Duperon Washer Compactor and the Duperon Auger Conveyor.

Duperon Corporation was founded on the philosophy of simple problem-solving.

“I saw a problem that needed to be fixed,” says Terry Duperon, founder and chairman of the board. “I was making pumps then, and they would get clogged with the debris that was in the channel. So I put my waders on to figure out what I could do to solve it.”

His solution, the Self-Cleaning Trashrack, earned him the company’s first patent and launched Duperon Corporation. His invention of FlexLink technology and the Duperon FlexRake in 1995 let the company begin work in the wastewater industry.

“We began as a stormwater company,” says Tammy Bernier, president and CEO. “That allowed us to apply what we know about dealing with the toughest debris and harshest environments to the wastewater environment.”

In many instances, this experience has greatly benefitted wastewater treatment plants, allowing for the elimination of pre-screening due to the durability and strength designed into the Duperon FlexRake.

Duperon Corporation continues to design industry innovations, seeking to solve the problems that others accept as a side effect of preliminary treatment. Its most recent advancement in screening technology, the Duperon Perforated Plate, uses Hydropression technology to clean a fixed-element perforated screen — eliminating clogging and blinding.
