"Our steel band screen was expensive to maintain, and it caused a lot of problems.  The Hydrolox screen has been a problem-solver.  The downtime, expenses, and cleaning difficulties we experienced previously are no longer an issue.  I would recommend Hydrolox screen technology to any power generation facility."
