Automated Rock Removal and Conveying System Enhances SPIRALIFT® SR

SR With Rock Trap

The SPIRALIFT® SR septage receiving system now features an optional automated rock removal system. This unique system enhances the ease of use of the system grinder and tramp-trap. Rocks are a consistent problem with septage receiving and various methods of removal are used.

With the SR a unique TASKMASTER TT grinder includes a trap system to settle out the rocks with a high level of efficiency. Typically the operator opens a manual gate valve and the rocks fall into a container. Other systems have baskets and a hatch door which needs to be lifted out of a series of pipes.

With the new SR Automated rock removal, an automated gate valve opens on a pre-planned cycle and the rocks fall into a

Pipeline Delumper PD4 Install

The PIPELINE DELUMPER® is a powerful inline processor that crushes, disperses and suspends tough solids in fully enclosed pipe systems. This unit eliminates blockages, works the stream to free flow and prevents damage to pumps and other equipment. It is suitable for wet, dry, pressure or gravity systems. In applications worldwide, the PIPELINE DELUMPER has demonstrated its processing and cost effective benefits.The ultra-compact, straight-through PIPELINE DELUMPER lump breaker is designed for easy installation. This fluid tight pressure rated unit has the full throughput capacity of the pipe to which it is connected. Its working principle employs rugged impeller teeth passing through a heavy bar grating to reduce the size of the product. These teeth completely clear the slots of the bar grating and at the same time clean the entire pipe cross section area.

Twice the Flow with the TASKMASTER® TITAN® Duplex

Titan Installation

The TASKMASTER® TITAN® Duplex (TM 14000D) builds on the TITAN’s major innovation in twin-shaft channel grinding technology. The TITAN combines powerful channel grinding capability with high flow capacity and low headloss. The result is superior performance in both grinding and liquid handling. With the TASKMASTER TITAN Duplex two complete sets of twin-shaft cutter stacks are employed for twice the flow capacity and channel width. This unit’s unique design employs two counter-rotating shafts, but its intermeshing cutter stacks have two different diameters. One opening is much larger than the other, providing more efficient feeding and reduction of bulky solids and allowing greater flow to pass through freely. The finely ground output provides excellent protection of pumps, filter presses and other downstream equipment. With its massive array of cutting edges, cutter life and unit strength are enhanced.
The TITAN employs a 3HP or 5HP motor and cycloidal gear drive, cutter cartridge technology and a 14″ x 12″ up to 14″ x 60″ inlet cutting chamber size for handling flow rates up to 8 mgd. The TASKMASTER TITAN is provided with a PLC driven S260 automatic reversing control system which automatically senses jam conditions and jogs the cutters in a reverse cycle to clear the obstruction.

Maximum Security with the SPIRALIFT® SLX

The SPIRALIFT® SLX is a heavy-duty system specifically built for screening of heavy prison and institutional wastewater effluent. This powerful system effectively handles large, concentrated solids including clothing, sneakers, sheets, blankets, wood and other debris too large for standard-duty systems to handle.

SPIRALIFT SLX screens, wash, convey and compact even large solids in one integrated, easy to install system. This unit features a heavy TASKMASTER®TM1600 15HP shredder coupled with an over-sized channel screen. The TASKMASTER shreds the solids which are then captured on a fine screen and intensively washed. As the solids are conveyed up the transport, free water drains back into the channel. The solids are discharged into a bin or conveyor.

The SCREENMASTER® CS Versatile Bar Screen

The SCREENMASTER® CS provides efficient cleaning of a bar screen rack and removal of solids from rectangular channel installations. This versatile unit employs a simple, yet effective rotary front clean/front return raking mechanism. It installs at a 75° inclination so it has a very small footprint. This streamlined unit is fully enclosed above the water line.

The SCREENMASTER CS bar screen provides smooth quiet operation and is highly reliable. It employs rake heads that penetrate the screen slots as they reach the channel bottom and lift accumulated debris up to a discharge height of up to 38 ft (11.6 m) from the channel bottom. The screenings drop out the unit’s discharge chute and into a SPIRALIFT® SC Screenings conditioner/washer or into a bin or auxiliary conveyor.

The SCREENMASTER bar screen is fabricated in stainless steel including the unit’s oversized drive chains. Unlike other screens, the SCREENMASTER’s design employs no bottom bearings or sprockets thereby eliminating a major cause of maintenance problems.

The SCREENMASTER CS bar screen is available with a choice of slots openings from 2 inch down to 1/4″. They are available for any channel width up to 78” wide (2 m).
