All of our filtration systems are designed for standard open ditch irrigation, but we do offer custom builds for those with unique requirements. See our available customizations below and please contact Warren or Justin at 970.302.8892 with any inquiries.

Custom Electric

Built to suit your needs, this is our most durable model, engineered by the owner himself. Built from 6 inch wide, ¼ inch thick channel iron, our customs always include stainless steel shafts and screens and are always powder coated for longevity of life.

Customs are available in overall widths of 28 inches to 40 inches, and depending on the application, we can customize these widths to suit, if they are close to our standard widths.These units can be built from 5 foot long up to 20 foot long.

Depending on the availability of material, we may be able to accommodate an even longer unit, to suit our customer’s needs.

Custom Vertical Units

Built out of 6 inch wide, ¼ inch thick channel iron, these units are much like our standard custom machines.

These units also come standard with powder coating and stainless steel wear parts. Different in design, these units stand vertical when installed. Built to divert trash rather than remove it, where removal is not necessary.

Commonly installed in front of head gates, this unit allows trash and debris to pass by and continue on downstream.

Overall Width: 15 – 40 inches

4 – 20 foot

Screen Perforation Size:
Stainless ¼ inch or stainless 1/8 inch

Drive Chain to Torque Limiter:
1/3 HP single or three phase with gear reducer, #55 roller chain

Add-Ons & Upgrades

Screens: Galvanized (standard on all but custom machines) ¼ inch and 1/8 inch or Stainless (standard on all custom machines) ¼ inch or 1/8 inch. 

Shafts: Cold Roll Steel or Stainless Steel *we highly recommend stainless screens in all machines, as it doesn’t rust and far outlasts the galvanized screen*

Powder Coating: Available in multiple colors, suited to your needs (standard color is red) *we highly recommend powder coating as well, due to prolonged life and resistance to rust*

Trash Catch Pans: Vary in size and shape, built to suit your needs.

Extensions: 2 foot and 4 foot (These extensions allow ease of installation in an existing ditch where size doesn’t quite match, as well as the benefit of trash being able to pile higher without having to remove it as often).

Roller Chain: Heavy Duty #62

What Our Clients Say

“We have been using Hydroscreen trash catchers for many years now and I can’t imagine irrigating without them. They also work great as a pre-cleaner for our drip irrigation systems, saving us a lot of time and hassle. I look forward to installing more Hydroscreen units in the future!”

"I have been using Hydroscreens for the past 25 years. I run a total of five units to remove the excess trash that we have in our river and reservoir water. I flood irrigate with siphon tubes so without the Hydroscreen this wouldn’t be possible. I would have to hire at least two additional employees, just to keep checking clogged siphon tubes. Hydroscreens are a plus to my operation."
