About Us

Cambridge is a Regal Rexnord company. We are the world’s largest manufacturer of metal conveying and engineered woven mesh solutions used in food processing, industrial, filtration, packaging, and architectural applications.

We began weaving wire cloth more than 100 years ago in Cambridge Maryland. One of our first customers was Thomas Edison. After six decades of continuous growth, we merged with nearby Maryland Wire Belts in 1998, becoming Cambridge International. We were acquired by Rexnord in 2016 and Rexnord merged with Regal Beloit in 2021 to become Regal Rexnord.

Regal Rexnord is now an approximately $5 billion leading solutions provider in the global motor and power transmission market. (www.regalrexnord.com)

The completed merger allows us to better serve our customers, including access to a complete portfolio of complementary products across the entire powertrain, including highly regarded brands from both Rexnord and Regal Beloit, such as: Regal’s Browning, Grove Gear, Hub City, Jaure, KopFlex, McGill, ModSort, Sealmaster, and System Plast brands, as well as PMC’s Berg, Cambridge, Centa, Falk, Rexnord, and Stearns brands, among others.

Capabilities & Industries Served

Cambridge Water Screen Systems offers a wide range of custom engineered Traveling Water Screens, Stationary Water Screens, Trash Racks, Bar Screens and Stoplogs for manmade (i.e., cooling towers) and natural (i.e., river, lake, etc.) water sources. These systems are also referred to as Rotary Screens, Cooling Tower Screens, Intake Screens, Pump Screens and Trash Screens.

In simple terms, if you need a new or replacement water screen system to protect pumps and downstream systems from harmful debris, Cambridge Water Screen Systems can provide a solution. We also have experience in reverse engineering and replacing worn and broken water screen systems.

When our engineers are involved early in the planning process, we can provide critical information in system selection and design. We can evaluate the type and specifications of the system based on the site, required performance criteria and the environment.

Our experience covers a wide range of environments and industries:

  • Protecting pumps and downstream systems
  • Heat reduction systems (cooling towers)
  • Water used in processing
  • Refineries and petrochemical manufacturing plants
  • Power plants
  • Municipal and agricultural projects

Professional Engineer (PE) Certified Design

Every Cambridge Water Screen System is an engineered solution.  The approved design for each project receives a Professional Engineer (PE) certification stamp. This certification is based on calculations that show the system will withstand the forces due to a given flow rate, the dimensions of the water intake opening, and the screen clogging percentage. We design our screens per ASD (Allowable Stress Design) specifications to verify that the screens and frames can withstand the loading from the water.
