The Rotary Screen is robust and fully automated. It offers an effective method for separating solids and liquid. Due to its versatility, it can be utilised across a broad spectrum of applications.
Solids and liquid separation occur through a filter drum, made from a stainless-steel grate or perforated mesh. The grate or mesh is available in various sizes to provide coarse or fine screening, depending on the specific application. Screen apertures range from 0.15mm to 6mm.
The flow to be treated is introduced via a flow stilling chamber. Therefore, ensuring even distribution of flow across the screen drum. The flow then passes across the width of the drum, capturing the solids on the drum surface. The fluids pass to the screened line outlet.
The drum continuously rotates carrying the captured solids to discharge at the outlet. The screened process fluid provides a self-cleaning function for the screen as it passes through the bottom of the drum.
All screens have upgrade options for more demanding applications. For example, the process fluid is corrosive or has a high presence of fats, oils and greases (FOG).
