Well screens are for dewatering wet areas and use as pump pre-filters in lakes, ponds and culture systems to prevent debris or animals from being pumped with the water. Made from Schedule 40 PVC pipe, screens have precision-cut slots that are .01” or .04” and made horizontally to prevent collapsing and for more open area per foot than vertical slotting. Use the .01” screens with the “WP” well points to create a shallow well; use the .04” size for less clogging or higher flowrates. Flowrates are per linear foot and are based on 0.1 ft/sec entrance velocity. Order well points separately; see our “PVC Fittings” section for threaded adapters, tees and caps to complete your installation. All screens are 5’ OAL and ship Oversize. Made in USA.
.01” IS ABOUT 250 MICRONS (THE THICKNESS OF A BUSINESS CARD). .04” IS ABOUT 1,000 MICRONS (HOUSEHOLD WINDOW SCREEN).
