New Features in a Reciprocating Rake Automatic Bar Screen
JWC Environmental is proud to introduce the new Bar Screen Monster ® the first self-contained reciprocating rake screening system designed to capture and transport large amounts of wastewater debris to the discharge point.
The Bar Screen Monster utilizes industry exclusive features such as a fully submersible, explosion proof brake motor that drives the rake along the tracking system. As the bar screen rake carriage moves up, the rake removes debris from the bar rack. The unit consists of a fully replaceable, non-lube pin rack and tracking system for easy maintenance without removing the screen from the channel. The pin rack and tracking system can be removed in sections – removing the carriage from the screen is not necessary.
“Our goal was to create a product compact enough for use in multiple wastewater screening applications including pump stations but versatile in function to separate larger amounts of debris,” explained Rob Sabol, JWC’s Engineering Director.
Also, the Bar Screen Monster’s completely submersible drive means the unit is compact, resulting in low head room, making it easy to install and requiring a smaller installation area. It accommodates channel widths from 2.5 (0.8 m) to 6.5 (2 m) feet and depths up to 12 feet (3.7 m). The rake speed operates at a minimum 20 feet (6 m) per minute.
The Bar Screen is available in angles from 80, 85 or 90 degrees. This efficient design results in a lower life-cycle cost making it an economical choice for headworks, pump stations and industrial applications.
Make it a Monster Screening System
Screening from the wastewater Bar Screen Monster can be processed with JWC’s Screenings Washer Monster® for significant volume reduction, odor control and separation of fecal material from the waste. This Monster Screening System combination provides the best in class screening solution.
