The problem was a static screen, it was used to separate solids from liquid effluent. The screen blocked quickly and had to be removed and manually cleaned frequently. This was an ongoing maintenance nightmare.
The solution to this problem was a SPIROGUARD® Model CS250 Channel Screen including:
- 7m overall length
- pivoting fulcrum for inspection and maintenance
- 1mm wedgewire screen
- spiral brush to clean screen from inlet side
- eight spray nozzles to clean screen from underside
- level sensor and automatic control panel
