Automatic debris removal solutions for water intakes.

Brackett Bosker® Automatic Raking Machines

A wide range of established automatic raking machines efficiently remove coarse debris and protect downstream equipment for land drainage, nuclear power, hydro power, cooling water and wastewater applications.

This trash rake system cleans, conveys and discharges debris directly into a skip or trailer. Incorporating an overhead monorail to maintain a safe, working and uncluttered screen deck, it provides simple, fully automated operation and 24-hour coverage.

Ideal for new or retrofitted intakes

Brackett Bosker Automatic Raking Machines can effectively lower operating costs, protect downstream processes and eliminate the need for separate conveyor and debris loading systems.
The Ovivo team works closely with all partners to assist with their debris removal needs by providing:

  • Feed studies
  • Design optimisation (cost engineering)
  • Life cycle cost analysis

Fully customizable for a range of water intake requirements

Brackett Bosker Automatic Raking Machines are fully customisable and automated systems that combine debris cleaning and conveying systems, while offering a range of benefits that put the Brackett Bosker ahead of alternatives. Benefits include:

  • A fully customisable monorail track that can be curved to achieve remote location dumping
  • A large debris capacity range of 250-3,000 kg (550-6,600 lbs)
  • A trash rake system that cleans, conveys and discharges debris directly into a skip or trailer
  • opsCTRL™ enabled to allow remote digital monitoring and diagnostics from mobile phone, tablet or PC
  • Low noise operation for urban sites
  • Compact footprint

Utilizes over 60 years’ experience to provide a highly innovative, fully customisable solution

The Brackett Bosker Automatic Raking Machine traverses on a monorail track allowing access to multiple screens and remote dump sites. The Bosker can be operated manually or automatically from either pushbutton, time clock, periodic timer, level differential signal or remote signal from telemetry.

At the start signal, the Brackett Bosker Automatic Raking Machine travels to the designated screen area and stops over its first pick-up point. The gripper then descends and collects any debris trapped on the bar screen, releasing directly into the designated dump area, eliminating the need for additional handling.
