Wastewater Screening Design Quick Reference Guide

Is your wastewater screening design struggling to meet industry standards? Are you experiencing clogged and damaged equipment on a monthly or even weekly basis? For starters, you should evaluate your preliminary treatment and identify the most effective wastewater screening design for your wastewater plant.

Your screening equipment plays a huge role in your wastewater system as it is the first line of defense to the filtration process. When removing objects such as rags, paper, plastics and metals, screening equipment prevents damage and clogging of downstream equipment.

Screening Equipment, wastewater screening designThe first step to replacing equipment will include distinguishing the correct metrics for your concentrations, conversions, head drops and screen sizes. To assist you in sizing and fitting your next wastewater screening design, JWC has created a Quick Reference to help you measure and convert your specs for screens and components. The different equipment calculations in our new quick reference guide include all of the specs necessary for installation. This user-friendly quick reference guide will help you to convert screen specs precisely in seconds!

Now that you have calculated the necessary specs, you will need to figure out the appropriate screen for your plant. JWC’s goal is to help you to treat your wastewater efficiently and effectively. JWC has carefully engineered wastewater screening systems for a number of applications that include drum, in-channel, auger and static screens for municipal and industrial placements. With so many choices, what wastewater screening system should you use? Let us break it down for you:

  • Rotary Drum Screens are installed in applications that contain flume waters, effluents containing moderate to low solid loadings, high flows or high solids loading zone. These screens are versatile and provide superior solids recovery from waste streams. JWC offers both internally fed drum screens and externally fed drum screens.
  • In-Channel Screens are used in situations without a grinder, usually where there is a limited number of rags and no large solids in the waste stream. JWC offers bar screens, chain and rake screens, fine screens and band screens.
  • Auger Screens are a robust headworks solution that combines three of JWC’s finest technologies – a grinder, a fine screen and a compactor into one unit called the Auger Monster. This spiral screen removes trash and unwanted solids so the treatment plant runs more efficiently.
  • Statics Screens are typically used when the solids are easily separated from the liquid and where the separated solids slide easily. JWC offers Sidehill Static and Sidehill Pressure Screens.

At JWC we offer a wide range of products that target unique challenges with wastewater treatment plants being a top priority.  Drum screens, in-channel screens, auger screens and static screens are all used in municipal and industrial applications. The steps are simple, calculate your specs and choose your screen!

  1. Reciprocating rake bar screen – one of the most popular types of screens in the industry. Reliable even in challenging applications.
  2. Explosion Proof Submersible brake motor – allows the screen to have a much lower head room, so it can fit into cramped pump stations or headworks.
  3. Completely enclosed, all stainless steel – we know odor control is important for our customers, so our automatic Bar Screen Monster is completely enclosed and built from 304 or 316 stainless steel.
  4. Fully assembled – our reciprocating rake bar screens is also one of the easiest to install. The entire Bar Screen Monster arrives assembled, ready to be dropped into the channel, bolted down and start it running.

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 application’s including pump stations but versatile in function to separate larger amounts of debris,” explained Rob Sabol, JWC’s Engineering Director.
