Parkson’s Aqua Guard UltraClean fine screen offers the best balance of capture rates and maintenance in an in-channel screen. Building off the original Aqua Guard element screen design, additional features on the UltraClean help reduce maintenance and improve cleaning efficiency to result in consistently high capture rates. Its three-dimensional filtration grid has been proven to double the capture rates of single-dimensional vertical bar screens.

Solids contained in the wastewater flow are captured on the filter elements and carried upward on the belt assembly for discharge at the rear of the unit. As the rake tip of one row of filter elements passes between the shank arm of the lower row, elements automatically clean themselves. In the two-stage screening process, coarse filtration occurs on the forward screen face while fine filtration occurs on the recessed face. The result is improved capture rates.

Operator friendly features include a redesigned brush with side removal to help ease access and reduce maintenance, and a dedicated brush motor to optimize speed. An extended belt path and removable spray header with quarter-turn nozzles improve self-cleaning and solids release and ease maintenance. The UltraClean is available in Model MN (standard) or Model S (heavy-duty) and offers either a pivoting or stationary frame style. The unit can be installed at multiple angles and is available on new screens and as a new “head” retrofit on existing Aqua Guard element screens.
