ATLAS-SSI is the largest rebuilder of traveling water screens in North America and have rebuilt more screens than all of our competitors combined.

We work on all makes and models of travelling water screens and can upgrade screens to meet 316(b) standards.  

Rebuilding an existing water screen is often the most cost-effective alternative to a totally new, exact-replacement screen, and rebuilt screens allow you to schedule your maintenance during planned outages rather than making costly repairs at the worst possible time – during an emergency situation.


Our factory rebuild program focuses on the replacement parts and areas of the screen that typically receive the most wear. We treat each rebuilt screen as though it were new, backing that up with the same 18-month warranty that comes with our new screens.

The rebuild process begins once your screen arrives at our facility, where it is completely disassembled and sandblasted down to the bare metal. The entire screen is then inspected by our technical design team, and a detailed report is prepared outlining its exact condition and what repairs are necessary.

After the main frame and sub-assemblies have been rebuilt, the entire screen and all of its parts are coated with an immersion-service-rated epoxy paint. 

The screen is then reassembled and quality assurance tests are performed before final completion and re-installation at your site.

316(b) Options:

We can also take your existing screen and upgrade it to “fish ready” or “fish handling”.         

  • Fish Ready: We upgrade your screen components to a level that minimizes the upgrades at the time you need to be compliant. 
  • Fish Handling: We can return your screen fully fish handling ready to be compliant with 316(b). This option includes modified Ristroph baskets, extended head section and a fish-return system.
