  • Intake screens are typically designed to protect fish from being entrained into a diversion AND to prevent them from being impinged on the screen surface.  This means that the screen openings must be small enough to keep the fish out and that there is enough screen area to allow the fish to swim away without injury.  There are also requirements for providing good hydraulic conditions, keeping the screens clean, and for siting them appropriately in a river, canal, or lake environment. ISI’s engineers are familiar with the regulatory design requirements and are experienced in selecting an appropriate design for your new or retrofit project.  We can guide you through the complicated design issues and determine which options makes the most sense - even if an ISI screen is not the most appropriate option!

    ISI’s success is based on a long history of working in the industry and its staff and owners bring together solid experience that is used on each project.  Russ Berry, founder of ISI, built the first self-cleaning intake screens on a ranch in north central Nebraska.  Seeing the great potential for a product that could solve suction related problems, he started manufacturing them in 1979.  In 1990, he sold Plum Creek Mfg. to the Claude Laval Corporation.  In 1996, Russ formed ISI to develop custom screens specifically for fish protection that could be used in demanding river environments.  In 1999, Russ’ son, Russell Berry IV, became involved in all aspects of the business, developing an impressive array of skill sets and abilities that he continues to build on and enjoy.  Jacob Chapin joined ISI in 2006, bringing his mechanical engineering expertise, fabrication, and CAD skills to the company.  Jacob’s resume includes designing fire trucks, heavy portable pump packages, and mechanical systems.  ISI’s staff also includes skilled fabricators and certified welders that can make about anything.
