In Hong Kong the Bandguard screen from SPIRAC significantly reduces the maintenance costs of downstream equipment.

A high-efficiency dual-flow traveling fine-screen made by SPIRAC has been installed at the world-renowned Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).

Working in close conjunction with BML Engineering, who have vast water & wastewater project experience in China, Hong Kong and the Far East, SPIRAC supplied and installed its Bandguard 300 ‘Out to In Type’ dual flow travelling band screen (for civil opening width of 1.66 m and civil channel depth of 11.2 m for discharge capacity of 2000 litres) for HKUST’s seawater pump house.

Consistently ranked among the top-tier universities (with over 16,000 students), in Asia, HKUST’s Bandguard screen from SPIRAC prevents screenings accumulation and significantly reduces the maintenance costs of downstream equipment. The screen is designed to achieve full cleaning by first depositing all debris in the internal launder system, and then feeding it out through the side of the screen.

Gary Lau, General Manager at BML Engineering, said:

“SPIRAC very much meet our customer’s needs for equipment and back-up of a first-class quality that will stand the test of time. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology is very pleased with this installation.”

Shaym Mallen from SPIRAC, added:

“We are very proud to see our design and manufacturing recognized for such important projects in Hong Kong, and to work alongside BML Engineering, who have such in-depth experience, expertise and capability.”
