Our facility receives between 0.7 and 1.0 million gallons per month of combined domestic septage, grey water, and grease trap waste trucked by tankers to the plant. We have two screening devices from two different manufacturers that receive, screen, and dewater the screened material prior to introduction into the main plant influent stream for treatment. The screening devices have some difficulty dealing with the rocks, sand, rag material, small metal objects, and clogging from heavy grease loads. Is anyone having really good success with a screening device that handles all of these materials? I would appreciate you sharing your equipment success experience.
