JAGTAP Wedge Wire Screens are commonly used in various industries, including wastewater treatment, for preliminary treatment processes. Preliminary treatment is the initial stage in wastewater treatment where larger solid materials are removed from the incoming wastewater to prevent damage to downstream equipment and processes. Wedge Wire Screens, with their unique design, are well-suited for this purpose. Here's how they can be used in preliminary treatment:
Bar Screens Replacement: Traditionally, bar screens have been used to capture large debris such as sticks, rags, plastics, and other solid objects from wastewater. Wedge Wire Screens can be employed as a more effective alternative or replacement for bar screens. The wedge-shaped profile of the wires provides a larger open area, allowing for better solids capture and reduced risk of clogging.
Coarse Screening: Wedge Wire Screens can be used for coarse screening, capturing larger particles and solids that could potentially cause damage to downstream pumps, pipes, and equipment. The screens are placed at the entrance of wastewater treatment plants to intercept and remove these materials.
Grit Removal: In some cases, Wedge Wire Screens can be used for grit removal, though more specialized equipment like grit classifiers or aerated grit chambers are typically employed. The screens can help retain larger grit particles before they reach the treatment process.
Flow Equalization: Wedge Wire Screens can also be used as flow equalization devices to distribute incoming wastewater flows evenly across subsequent treatment processes. This helps prevent hydraulic overloading and ensures efficient treatment.
Fish Protection: In addition to their application in wastewater treatment, Wedge Wire Screens can be used in water intake structures to protect aquatic life from being drawn into industrial processes.
Benefits of using JAGTAP Wedge Wire Screens in preliminary treatment include:
High Strength and Durability: Wedge Wire Screens are constructed from stainless steel, making them resistant to corrosion and wear. This ensures a longer lifespan and reduced maintenance needs.
Non-Clogging Design: The wedge-shaped wires create a self-cleaning effect as wastewater flows through the screen, minimizing clogging and reducing the frequency of maintenance.
Efficient Solids Capture: The design of the wedge-shaped wires allows for efficient capture of large debris and solids.
Flexibility in Design: Wedge Wire Screens can be custom-designed to fit specific flow rates, installation spaces, and process requirements.
