For Intake, Process
& Effluent Filtration
Has been manufacturing Automatic Scraper Strainers since the Mid-1980’s. Widely recognized for our design flexibility, our units are designed to remove solids from 150mm in size down to 50 micron particles.
These strainers are available with connections from 1′′ up to 48′′ in fabricated carbon steel, stainless steel and various alloys such as Alloy 20, Monel 400 and Super Duplex. All internal components, including the wedgewire screen, are constructed for durability and longevity.
Our second-to-none Engineering support makes special design requirements such as viscous fluids, suction-side installations and jacketed vessels a breeze.
All strainers are fabricated to the exact design needs of each client and project. We can even meet the exacting requirements of ACRS strainers with FRP vessels for maximum corrosion resistance in seawater or process applications. Our scraper design does not require an external feed of clean water for contaminant removal and the scraper’s automatic operation and self-cleaning features makes for practically no maintenance. Our vessels are ASME section VIII, Div. 1, code stamped and alternate approvals such as PED and GOST are available.

Automatic Backwash Strainers Brochure and Specification
The ACME Automatic Backwash Strainer has been designed to remove solids from 25mm in size down to 30 micron particles.
Automatic Scraper-Strainers Brochure and Specification
The ACME Automatic Scraper Strainer has been designed to remove solids from 150mm in size down to 75 micron particles.
Replacement Automatic Strainers
ACRS L-Series Automatic Scraper Strainers are custom built to your specifications. Provide Acme with a drawing of your current backwash automatic strainer installation and we will configure an economical replacement.
Scraper strainer advantage over Backwash
Acme scraper strainers resist clogging and fouling when faced with large solids and high solids concentration. Backwash strainers cannot remove oversize solids and will clog, requiring manual removal of the solids and cleaning of the filtration screen.
