• GreenScreen
    The portable fish screen that helps ensure the safety of juvenile fish species in various lakes and streams during water transfer operations; wildland firefighting, construction projects, temporary irrigation, etc.
  • Zinvent’s GreenScreen accessories also have additional functions to help minimize foreign debris from entering the draft line and water pump.

GreenScreen Advantages

  • Environmentally Friendly – The GreenScreen helps ensure juvenile fish species are not harmed by water transferring operations in sensitive lakes and streams.

  • Debris Protection – Since the size of the GreenScreen is larger than normal when deployed, the water velocity moves slower through the GreenScreen. This results in the GreenScreen having a much less tendency of attracting any debris like weeds, grasses, sands, and silts. This can help ensure the longevity of the water pump.

  • Collapsible – To help with storing the GreenScreen on a wildland fire engine for example, the GreenScreen will collapse to about 10% of the deployed length with the help of a stainless steel internal spring. The spring also ensures the screen maintains a deployed shape under suction forces. The collapsibility feature is very beneficial on fire engines that have very limited storage space.

  • Durable – The Flexible mesh screen is ultra tough. It has a tear strength of 75lbs and a tensile strength of 220lbs. It also complies with the maximum hole size and open area requirements for fish screens. The mesh will also not degrade when submerged for long periods of time.

  • UV Resistant –The sun will not degrade any components on the design.

  • Replaceable Mesh Screen – The mesh screen is secured to the body of the screen by either a bunjee cord or hose clamp, depending on the design. This allows for easy replacement of the mesh screen if ever needed. Additional mesh screens can be ordered as needed.

  • Short Lead Times – Zinvent understands how quickly fires occur in dry conditions. Zinvent screens can be ordered and shipped nearly immediately to any location to help supply incoming resources when fires breakout.

  • Available Sizes– 50GPM, 100GPM, (200GPM coming soon),350GPM, and 500GPM

  • Compliant - All screens use the design premise of maintaining a 0.2ft/s approach velocity or less. The screening material has 3/32" holes or less while maintaining the proper open area.
