Get economical wastewater grit dewatering even at small treatment plants.
The Grit Decanter dewatering bin is a non-mechanical dewatering system designed to retain fine grit with little water content, allowing for cost-effective disposal. The system is custom-designed to match your local disposal truck configurations.
The Grit Decanter is the ideal solution for plants with peak flows of up to 7 MGD for dewatering cleaned output from a TeaCup® or Grit King® separation system.
The Grit Decanter dewatering bin is a non-mechanical dewatering system designed to retain fine wastewater or industrial process grit with little water content, allowing for cost-effective disposal. An economical alternative to conventional dewatering systems, the system is custom-designed to match your local disposal truck configurations and is ideal for smaller treatment plants with peak flows of up to 7 MGD.
When a Decanter is used in conjunction with a TeaCup® solids classifier, the grit underflow and washed abrasives require no further washing before dewatering. This underflow can be pumped or flow by gravity to the Grit Decanter for clarification and dewatering. Degritted overflow from the Grit Decanter can be returned to the plant headworks.
Heavy duty casters make the Grit Decanter highly portable, meaning that multiple units may be easily used in conjunction. When one is filled it can be moved aside to wait for the arrival of disposal trucks while a stand-by unit can be easily wheeled into place.
To allow for easy disposal of dewatered solids the Grit Decanter comes in three basic configurations to match local disposal trucks or equipment configurations:
A system using the Grit Decanter will cut energy costs and reduce the expense of replacing moving parts that come into contact with the abrasive impacts of grit. Additionally, durable construction ensures a long product life and reduces abrasive wear and fouling of solids handling equipment.
The Grit Decanter is portable, mounted on four polyurethane casters suitable for movement on a smooth, hard floor.
