The SideHill Screen (SHS) is a low-cost, low-maintenance screening technology. The system operates by feeding the influent into a headbox where hydraulic turbulence keeps solids in suspension. The wastewater then overflows a distribution weir that orients the flow tangentially onto a steeply sloped screen surface. The liquid passes through the openings in the wedgewire to a drainage pan, located on the backside of the screen, and the solids slide down the surface of the screen to the discharge lip. The SHS element is a curved, slotted, wedgewire screen with slots ranging from 0.010' to 0.125' oriented perpendicular to the direction of flow. The decks are positioned at a steeply sloped angle providing an effective stripping of liquid and allowing the solids to slide off the deck.
