Overview

Overview

The Hydro-Industrial Drum Screen is an externally fed rotary drum screen that reliably and effectively separates screenings from industrial wastewater prior to further treatment.

The compact nature of the system ensures effective screening in a small footprint (as little as 0.9 m2 / 9.6 ft2), particularly for effluent containing high concentrations of fats and oils, and a hydraulic throughput of up to 105 l/s / 1,600 gpm enables industrial facilities to handle high volumes in a single unit - removing nuisance and damaging materials to protect and improve downstream treatment processes.

The Hydro-Industrial Drum Screen is easy to operate, quick and simple to maintain, and its low power and low flushing water consumption make it a highly economical treatment option.

Applications

The system delivers economical high-throughput screening for a range of industrial sectors: 

  • Meat and poultry slaughter and processing
  • Dairy and milk processing
  • Fish canning
  • Vegetable processing
  • Brewing and winemaking
  • Oil and fat processing
  • Chemicals and petrochemicals
  • Textiles and leather production

Designed for

Industrial materials
Oils & hydrocarbons
Benefits

Benefits

Cut sewerage discharge costs through improved effluent quality.

Reduce energy costs by removing more BOD.

Increase downstream treatment capacity through removal of solids and BOD.

Cut screening costs with low flushing water and low energy consumption.

Screen high volumes of wastewater in a small footprint.

Prevent downstream damage, blockages and wear - separate damaging and clogging materials from the onward treatment process.
