The characteristics that set Hydrolox traveling water screens apart—operable 24/7/365, virtually maintenance-free, lowest cost of ownership—make them the ideal screens for cooling water intake structures. Hydrolox engineered polymer traveling water screens have proven successful at meeting impingement and entrainment reductions in both laboratory and field testing. With their smooth surfaces, narrow screen-width openings, and enhanced fish-delivery systems, Hydrolox traveling water screens enable compliance with EPA's Clean Water Act 316(b) and the 2009 Eels Regulations (UK).
