Dewatering-Clarifying Screener

November 29, 2012

This Vibroscreen dewatering-clarifying screener offers an anti-blinding spray-wash system for separating solid materials from liquids at high rates on a batch or continuous basis. The unit contains a 48-in.-diam screen in a cylindrical housing supported on a circular base by rugged springs. An imbalanced weight gyratory motor affixed to the housing imparts vibration, causing solid particles to move across the screen and exit through an upper discharge spout, as liquid flows through screen apertures onto a tapered pan and exits through a lower discharge spout. A manifold positioned above the screen feeds eight nozzles that spray liquid in wide conical patterns continuously or on a timed cycle, preventing solids from blinding the screen. The unit functions both as a "dewatering screener" when separating a small-to-medium percentage of liquid from a large percentage of solids, and as a "clarifier" when separating a small percentage of solids from a large percentage of liquids. It is constructed of epoxy-coated carbon steel, and available in stainless steel to 3-A, FDA, BISSC, and other sanitary standards, as well as to UL, ATEX, CSA, and CE electrical standards.
