Overview

The Hydro-Industrial™ MicroScreen is a low-energy, small-footprint rotating belt screen that delivers exceptional solids removal from industrial wastewater.

Maintaining efficiency even at peak design flow rates, it enables industrial operators to meet discharge requirements, increase efficiency and save money by cutting energy and chemical use, lowering maintenance costs, reducing solids handling and recovering materials to be recycled or reused, converted into energy or sold on.

Benefits

Reduce energy use and footprint

The Hydro-Industrial™ MicroScreen is a low-energy, small-footprint system, providing cost-effective treatment in a small space. With a footprint between 4 and 10 m2 (43 and 107 sq ft) and energy demand of between 2.5 and 7.0 hp, it saves up to 50% on energy use and up to 90% on footprint compared to conventional primary treatment technologies.

Cut maintenance costs and system downtime

The Hydro-Industrial™ MicroScreen is a small, accessible unit that can be cleaned and maintained quickly and easily—cutting maintenance costs and reducing costly system downtime. A two-unit system provides dual redundancy, eliminating system downtime during maintenance altogether. 

By reducing the load placed on downstream systems and processes it also prolongs downstream equipment lifetimes and reduces the downstream maintenance burden.

Save on solids handling

With a dewatering section and compression zone, the Hydro-Industrial™ MicroScreen produces up to 50% total solids—without the use of chemicals. This increases the efficiency of solids handling, cutting the cost of transport and disposal.

Protect downstream treatment systems

The Hydro-Industrial™ MicroScreen does not require equalisation prior to screening, and will reduce the TSS and particulate BOD going into a Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) system—reducing the load to help achieve better overall performance. In new DAF installations a Hydro-Industrial™ MicroScreen can reduce the size / capacity of the DAF system required.

The Hydro-Industrial MicroScreen™ literally saves us several million each year in hauling costs.
