External-Flow Screen

Lyco Manufacturing has more than 50 years of industry-leading experience manufacturing screens and other food processing equipment. We have an outstanding reputation for manufacturing innovative, rugged machinery, used by 50 of the top 100 food companies in North America. The state-of-the-art design of the Lyco External-Flow Screen uses the same advanced technology and precision manufacturing to help our customers improve their operations.

Sanitary Zero Maintenance Screen

Lyco Manufacturing takes reliability to the next level with its Sanitary Zero Maintenance Screen design, eliminating trunnion wheels and bearings. The maintenance-free design removes the need for routine lubrication of the bearings. Lyco is known for making the most robust rotary screens in the industry.  As with any machinery, chain and sprocket drive systems still require routine lubrication to ensure optimal performance.

Micro Drum

Processors can gain significant savings with the Micro Drum Screen system by reducing industrial waste and increasing product recovery. Lyco’s Micro Drum removes particles as small as .008″ – 60% smaller than the .020″ particle removal for typical screens. Test one of our Micro Drums and prove it to yourself.

Single Drum Wastewater Screen

Processors can gain significant savings with our Single Drum Wastewater Screen to help reduce industrial waste and increase product recovery. Efficiently performs liquid/solid separation for red meat, pork, poultry, seafood or vegetables. Wedge-wire screens offer greater cleaning efficiencies, or reduce water requirements with an optional, patented Traveling Spray CIP option. More operators rely on Lyco’s Single Drum Wastewater Screen than any other type. Cast Stainless running rings last forever.

Double Drum Wastewater Screen

Processors can gain significant savings with the Double Drum Screen two-in-one screening system to reduce industrial waste and increase product recovery. The Double Drum screen combines .080″ primary and .020″ secondary screening into one machine. Operators can save space, costs and time by eliminating the need for two single-stage screens. Effective with poultry, vegetables, potatoes, fruit or snack food processing, the Double Drum screen offers durable, rugged construction and an established reputation for successful, reliable use in the industry. Users call this the best wastewater screen in the world.

Stationary Screen

The Lyco Manufacturing Stationary Screen de-waters products, such as beans and vegetables, or can perform rough screening of wastewater. The wastewater function cleans up pea, bean, corn, potato or meat waste. Sanitary construction and a tilt out screen make cleanup a quick process. High-quality craftsmanship guarantees long life and performance.

Slaughter – Problems Solved

Keep a tight rein on your BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) and TSS (total suspended solids) levels in discharged water, and find hidden revenue in your wastewater stream. Lyco Manufacturing’s unique double drum screens design has a smaller diameter .080″ screen inside a larger diameter .020″ outer screen. Screening twice in one machine makes it the most effective screen on the market. Whether processing poultry, pork, beef or other animal proteins, our equipment will reduce the load in your wastewater. We have over 600 Double Drum Screens in operation across America and they are known as “The Best Waste Water Screens in the world!”

In addition to our patented double drum screen, we’ve developed another screen called “The Micro Drum” with .008″ openings that removes 30% more solids than the .020″ screen described above.

Saving process water, removing more solids and reusing it again is a major initiative underway across our country at this time. One small 24″ diameter screen handling 200 GPM can save more than $150,000 in water a year reducing water costs, saving on municipal fees or reducing solids going to waste water lagoons. In some cases removed solids can be sold for secondary markets.

Lyco screens are made of wedge-wire because they tend to be self cleaning, but any design can still become plugged. Our patented “Traveling Sprays” uses one Spray Nozzle which covers the complete length of the cylinder and uses much less water than fixed spray manifolds with multiple nozzles.

Lyco screens are the most rugged in the industry. They eliminate the biggest problem that most rotating screens have, that being running ring failures. Lyco started using cast stainless steel running rings in the early 1990’s having made over 600 screens and we have NEVER had a ring fail unless the machine suffered from total neglect.
