As the inventors of Vee-Wire® and passive intake screens, ingenuity is at the heart of what we do at Johnson Screens. Since 1968, we have provided wedgewire water intake screens across more than a dozen industries, including power plants, cooling stations, desalination, and many more.

In addition to leading the industry from a performance standpoint, Johnson Screens sets the industry standard where environmental protection is concerned. The company was instrumental in the development of Section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act, providing guidance and expertise to the EPA in the interest of protecting marine wildlife. Since then, every water intake unit is manufactured in full compliance with this legislation.

Additionally, Johnson Screens offers a variety of materials for the assembly of all passive intake systems, including stainless steel, super duplex, and our patented copper-nickel Z-Alloy, which received NSF Certification for utilization in drinking water applications (NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for Drinking Water System Components – Health Effects.)

To provide maximum efficiency, each Johnson Screens’ passive intake screen is custom designed and engineered to each unique environment, resulting in a system which costs less to install, operate, and requires less maintenance.
