Landy Trash Rakes

A Landy Trash Rake working in snowy conditions Efficiently remove large obstacles and debris while protecting downstream equipment.

The Landy trash rake boasts one of the largest installation bases in the industry, with over 800 sites worldwide.

Cleaning efficiency is at the heart of the Atlas-SSI Landy trash rake screen design. The tines of the grab are constructed to fall between the bars of a screen during operation. 

As the grab descends to the bottom, it removes debris from the bar racks, closes hydraulically, and hoists the debris up. The grab then runs along an overhead monorail track to a debris dump area. 

The overhead track system provides design flexibility to meet challenging and site-specific requirements.

Atlas-SSI Landy grab style trash rakes are custom engineered for each project, and the components are available in coated carbon steel, hot-dipped galvanized steel, and 304 or 316 stainless steel.
