Get It Out: Protecting Valuable WWTP Equipment With Screens

Modern wastewater treatment processes are not designed to operate with inorganic solids in the waste stream. The impact of this type of debris on wastewater treatment equipment can range from loss of efficiency and performance to significant damage, all of which have financial ramifications for plant operators.

While grinders are typically a cost-effective method for protecting the pumps at pump stations, there are other critical junctures within a treatment plant where operators have an opportunity to protect valuable assets with screening technology.

The key to making a wise investment is to understand each of the strategic locations for screens, which kind of screen is appropriate, and what associated equipment will optimize the removal of inorganic materials.

Find out how the proper equipment in the proper places can increase the efficiency of separating inorganics. Read the full article here.
