TITAN System – Removal of coarse and medium solids

TITAN System – Removal of coarse and medium solids



Water intake systems in electrical generation, desalination, gas treatment, refineries etc. plants have extensive  protection and filtering systems from their inlet. The purpose of retaining and removing solids in water intake for the power (combined cycle, thermal, etc.) or desalination plant is the protection of screens that later filter solids and fine particles, so that large/medium size strange objects that could damage the equipment are removed and the quality of the intake water (river water, seawater intake) is ensured.
There is differentiation between coarse/medium and fine solids, according to the sieve size and type of solids to remove. The removal of coarse/floating solids is the first phase in the filtering and protection of the intake system water (Ranges 15-100 mm).

Estruagua designs and manufactures a complete range of screens and removal systems for coarse, medium and fine solids in the open channel of the water intake works.


The purpose of screening, among others, is to separate and protect the plant or process from the possible unwanted arrival of large objects, it separates and easily removes large solids. The usually discontinuous operation of the cleaning device can be actuated by an electric adjustable timer or by a differential head loss indicator, or a combination of both systems. This equipment is recommended for screens with continuous and automatic cleaning that are installed in very deep channels.

Cleaning is carried out by several cleaning scrapers that detach and transport the solid waste deposited on the screen, which is lifted and discharged at the top of a container, belt conveyor, screw conveyor, hydraulic compactor, etc.


All the models have the same basic construction and can be supplied with a wide range of special features, such as:

•    Wider or narrower screen
•    Adaptation to the channel or civil works
•    Construction in Stainless steel (SS 304- 316 / Duplex – Super Duplex) in all ranges and finishing options


ESTRUAGUA has supplied more than 1000 TITAN systems in projects throughout the world.   ESTRUAGUA has considerable knowledge and experience in the supply and installation of TITAN system equipment for removing large and medium solids in water intake for power plants.
