With over 300 installations in the USA & Canada and 12 new projects in Finland & Sweden during 1999, Hydrothane Systems has proven its effectiveness as a reliable alternative to conventional steel trashracks.
Hydrothane was originally developed and patented in 1988 to address problems and deficiencies associated with conventional steel trashracks.

Since its inception, Hydrothane has been recognized for its superior resistance to frazil ice. Simply stated, frazil ice does not easily attach to Hydrothane trashracks. After routine installations in salt water and zebra mussel infested fresh water, it was discovered that the same properties that prevent frazil ice attachment also restrict the growth of marine organisms on the racks themselves, thus spawning another benefit to our customers.
Some of the benifits Hydrothane trashracks provide are:

  • Streamlined blades
  • Lightweight (75% lighter than steel)
  • High load capacity
  • Reduces headloss
  • Fish friendly
  • Eliminates frazil ice problems
  • Resists marine growth
  • Eliminates vortex shedding
  • Non-corrosive
  • Easy to modify
  • UV protectors - provide longevity in exposed or submerged conditions.
