Trash screens are commonly used in water management to remove debris, such as leaves, branches, and trash, from storm water runoff before it enters a drainage system. Some examples of different types of trash screens include:

  • Grate inlet trash screens: These are typically installed at the inlet of a stormwater drainage system, such as a catch basin or curb inlet. They consist of a grate that covers the inlet, with openings that are small enough to trap debris while allowing water to pass through.
  • Automatic trash racks: These are similar to grate inlet screens, but they are designed to automatically remove debris from the screen. This can be done using a mechanical rake or a water jet system.
  • Vortex separators: These are large, circular devices that use a swirling motion to separate debris from stormwater. They are typically used in larger drainage systems, such as those for industrial or commercial sites.
  • Hydro-dynamic separators: They are similar to vortex separators, but they use a combination of swirling flow and a submerged weir to separate debris from stormwater.
  • Trommel screens: These are cylindrical screens that use a rotating drum to separate debris from stormwater. They are commonly used in larger drainage systems and can handle higher flow rates than other types of trash screens.
