Grab Style Trash Rakes

Source: Evoqua Water Technologies

The Evoqua Grab style trash rake is ideally suited for cleaning bar racks at cooling water intake structures, municipal water intake structures and small low-head hydro power stations.

The Grab Style Trash Rake from Evoqua is designed to easily engage the bar rack to collect debris as it descends down the face of the rack. Debris is then removed during the rake's ascending run and placed into deck-level receptacles. The Grab Style Trash Rake is considered to be the first line of defense in efficiently removing debris, ensuring that downstream screens, pumps and other equipment are protected, thus providing uninterrupted clean water flow to your plant.

The Grab Style Trash Rake is manufactured in the USA at an Evoqua ISO 9001:2008 certified facility.
