This was the first small Farmers Screen install, which inspired the development of the modular system.
A very remote site with difficult access, this Farmers Screen was fabricated off-site entirely out of steel and transported to the site where it was welded together.
The modular system is now designed to be simply bolted together onsite. Installation of the screen took only three days and involved a front loaded and an excavator. Water was diverted around the construction site in order to maintain water supply to irrigation customers.
