The Arlat RP Mechanical Bar screens work by utilizing a carriage mounted rake
assembly to remove material that has been collected on the submerged static bar rack.
The collected screenings are discharged through a chute on the downstream side of the
screen located above the operating floor.

Arlat manufactures two styles of ‘Climber’ screens; model RP, which has a carriage
mounted motor connected directly to the drive shaft and uses a rack and pinion
arrangement to drive the carriage; that removes the material from the bar rack.

The RP barscreen is a front cleaned, front return, self-cleaning mechanical screens for the
separation and removal of solid wastes from industrial and municipal flow systems,
including storm water/CSO installations

Although the majority of the screen components are manufactured from 304SS, UHMW is
widely used to significantly reduce wear, noise and replacement costs when compared to
competitive machines. There are no rotating drive parts that come into contact with the
