Acme to exhibit at WEFTEC in New Orleans

04-Oct-2010 | News-Press Release


ACME ENGINEERING PROD. INC. of Montreal, Canada manufactures the ACRS line of automatic scraper-strainers. The strainers employ an advanced design that can provide the automatic removal of solids and large particles using only dirty water for blowdown, unlike conventional backwash strainer designs.  The strainers are available in sizes up to a 66" body in steel or corrosion resistant metals.

These units are ideal for removing large, irregularly shaped solids and contaminants from seawater intake for the protection of reverse osmosis and other fine filtration systems.  Screens are available down to 75 microns to cover a broad range of straining requirements.  Jacketed bodies are available for viscous liquid applications.  The strainers are custom fabricated to engineer's or plant specifications and can be designed to fit into existing conventional strainer locations, avoiding costly piping rework.  Designs also exist to handle viscous fluids like black liquor and extremely high solids loading, typical in petrochemical applications.

Of particular interest to the water industry are recent applications to filter influent and effluent at low pressures and on the suction side of pumps, a first for an automatic strainer.  The Acme design has demonstrated superior resistance to screen clogging, resulting in less downtime and lost production.

Acme strainer vessels are now available in FRP construction with Monel internals for superior resistance to corrosion in seawater applications.
