Micro Bar Screen

Food and Industrial Applications:
Save time, money and water with a reliable, affordable fine screen that works. No Wash Water, No Brushes, No Blinding.

I have to say, the Or-Tec Micro Bar Screen has been working fantastically It's low maintenance and the way that the rake design is it positively engages the bars, so it does completely clean the screen with each cycle. We don't see issues with fats blinding this screen.

If you are screening waste with Fat, Oil, Grease, Plastics, Rags and are having issues with the screen blinding or excessive washwater usage, read more. The Or-Tec Blue Whale Micro Bar Screen will screen these wastes WITHOUT BLINDING and with ZERO WASHWATER. In addition the unit can screen using openings from 1mm to 1" to suit your application needs.

With a proven record of over 2,500 installations the Blue Whale Micro Bar Screen will screen wastes with high FOG levels, food processing waste, grease trap waste, petroleum waste with rags, fish farm washdown, vegetable producers waste and many more. It does all this with no washwater, no brushes and no blinding.

Many food processing and industrial plants use screens that require washwater and brushes to keep the screen face open and not blinded. Some require hot water!! And even then the screens blind over and require attention from plant personal to unblock the screen face. If the screen is not cleaned properly, spills and overflows to downstream processes occur.

The Blue Whale Micro Bar Screens ability to do this is due to its precisely engineer bar rack and 100% repeatable action of its fine penetrating rake teeth. The rake teeth effectively clean between the bars removing the debris and elevating it out of the channel. At the discharge of the screen a simple but efficient scraper system cleans the waste material from the rakes and discharges it for ease of disposal. Or-Tec can also provide control panels, level sensing and compactor washers for a complete system approach as required
