  • Moving difficult-to-handle bulk materials with flexible screw conveyors

    Flexible screw conveyor systems can be engineered to transport bulk materials that tend to pack, cake, smear, break apart or fluidize, and can prevent the separation of blended products. Flexible screw conveyors (Fig. 1) are suitable for most bulk materials, from sub-micron powders to large pellets, both free-flowing and non-free flowing. They are capable of conveying bulk materials at any angle ...

  • Dunstable sewage treatment plant steps up to mono nov for a complete extraction package

    Underlining its ability to supply either individual products or complete packaged systems for this type of application, Mono also provided two screw extractor systems and a single screw conveyor to partner an existingunit. The original step screen units installed on the Dunstable plant’s inlet flow had proved to be inefficient and unreliable. The replacement Discreen units now screen the inflow, ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Town of Guilderland, NY

    The Town of Guilderland has been dependably served by a 1.5 meter BDP belt press since its installation in 1983. In 2004, the Town decided that an upgrade was necessary, and chose BDP due to their service and equipment reliability. The Town of Guilderland installed a 2.0 meter 3DPTM, and immediately experienced dryer cakes with higher throughput resulting in lower disposal costs. The 3DPTM was ...

  • You can dewater your cake and pump it too! Conveyance options for OCSD Plant 1

    OCSD is currently upgrading Reclamation Plant 1 to co-thicken primary and waste activated solids using centrifuges. Digested solids will also be dewatered using centrifuges and the two processes will be housed in the same building. A small building footprint, stringent redundancy requirements, and a 200 foot distance between the dewatering and storage facilities requires innovative engineering ...

  • Dust Controlled at Source by TurboSonic Dry Fog® Suppression System

    When silica, limestone, cement, aggregate and other respirable dust particles ranging in diameter from 0.1 to 70 microns are airborne, they create a safety and health concern and an aesthetic nuisance. As a source of physical discomfort, lost materials and wear on conveying pulleys, idlers, belting and motors, such dust is a significant factor in lowered productivity and added operating and ...
