Water Connections: IPEC Drum Screens for Effective Food & Beverage Wastewater Treatment

Aug. 11, 2020

Food and beverage processing plants generate a significant amount of wastewater with relatively high concentrations of total suspended solids (TSS). To limit surcharges imposed for exceeding limits on TSS, it is imperative to treat this wastewater before sending it on to a municipal sewage system, land application or local waterway.

Rotary drum screens are an effective and efficient method to remove organic waste from food and beverage wastewater. Screening of organic matter can substantially reduce TSS levels in the waste stream and help protect downstream equipment. Proper screening of the waste stream can also increase discharge dryness resulting in lower hauling and waste disposal costs.

JWC offers high-efficiency IPEC rotary drum screens for food and beverage applications. IPEC drum screens use a wedge wire screen designed for the specific waste to optimize cleaning and minimize wash water use. The headbox dissipates energy flow to optimize liquid removal and maximize throughput. The higher throughput allows a smaller IPEC screen to do the same job as many larger competitive screens. IPEC rotary drum screens are known for their rugged construction, reliable performance and minimum maintenance in tough industrial wastewater applications. JWC works with customers to specify the right drum screen based on the debris composition, flow rate, and end use for the screenings. WT

JWC Environmental has a 45-year history of providing solids removal and solids reduction equipment for industrial and municipal wastewater applications. Learn more at www.jwce.com/wt.
