Divided Phase Separator
The Divided Phase Separator is a roll-off container with a stainless steel screen covering the entire inside of the container. The Divided Phase Separator, or Turbo, has a patented middle wall designed to increase surface area by 33%, thereby increasing dewatered sludge by 50%, essentially reducing transportation costs by 50%. There is a drain space between the wall and screen. A disposable cloth or screen is installed as a liner and the slurries or sludges are deposited inside the filter. The liquid drains through the filter, goes to the bottom and runs to the drains at the back door. When the solids are dewatered, the container is picked up with a roll-off truck and hauled to the desired location to be dumped and returned for reuse. The filter cloth is inexpensive, disposable, nontoxic and nonhazardous. The Phase Separator can also be equipped with a fixed on permanent filter. This filter cloth is inexpensive, disposable, incinerable, nontoxic and nonhazardous.
- Use of disposable filter versus fixed filter eliminates plugging problem and container dumps out clean.
- Largest filtration surface area in the industry that speeds dewatering.
- Unitized to facilitate handling of quantities from a few cubic feet to thousands of cubic yards.
- Unit design facilitates dewatering materials that cannot be pumped due to lumps, chunks or extraneous material inclusions. Works well on materials that might be dug and loaded for dewatering and drying.
- Units are available in many sizes and may be custom designed or modified to be compatible with customers’ needs. Standard units are 1 to 5 cu. yd. self-dumping Hoppers, 10 to 30 cu. yd. roll-off containers and 25 cu. yd. vacuum containers.
- Unit minimizes treatment and handling of materials before and after dewatering or drying. Solids are retained in unit and are ready to be transported.
- Unit may be used to recover product or process solids for reclaim, direct shipping, dewatering, drying, etc. … This eliminates some additional handling, intermediate packaging and contamination.
