Rotary Screen

The rotary screen is the portable cylindrical wedge wire screen that can be used for filtration. Rotary screens are also called drum screen, operate via rotational movement. Drum screen filtrates using the open gap between the V-wires of the cylindrical wedge wire screen.

Rotary drum screen is most effective for water filtration applications. Therefore, it is called wastewater rotary screen as well. With the rotation around the cylindrical axis, efficient and simple filtration is achieved with the drum screen.
