WE&T magazine has an excellent profile of the City of Burley, Idaho’s brand new wastewater treatment plant – which happens to use a pair of Bandscreen Monsters to protect the treatment plant.

The twin Bandscreens can process up to 11-million gallons each, use 1/4″ (6mm) perforated StapleGuard panels and feed into one Screenings Washer Monster – which grinds, washes, cleans, dries and compacts discharged screenings to get them ready for the landfill. From the article…

Wastewater entering this new plant is screened through a 6-mm bandscreen system, which includes a grinder–compactor. Then, a cyclone degritting system removes smaller particles. The main process is a biological nutrient removal system that uses an oxidation ditch with diffused aeration and multistage centrifugal blowers. In this system, mixing and aeration are controlled separately so energy usage can be controlled.
