ESI provides finite element analysis and structural design services for water intake screen systems. Intake screens are a crucial component in irrigation, municipal water systems, and hydroelectric generation and must perform reliably under severe operating conditions.

ESI’s engineering expertise has been utilized on a number of intake installations including the Lake Oswego, Oregon municipal water intake, Alameda County, California Water District, as well as hydroelectric power generation facilities in California and Wisconsin.

Stress analysis and careful design of the many stainless steel components that make up the large assembly is crucial. The end results are robust and efficient designs to withstand hydraulic, wind, seismic, and debris flow conditions.

Attention to manufacturing details, methods of installation and operation is provided at every step to ensure that system goals are met.
