ePUMPS Presents: The High Performance Grit Removal Solution

WEMCO® Hydrogritter® is an exceptional grit cyclone and classifier with an enduring operational life of over 25 years.

The WEMCO® Hydrogritter® components are designed as a system to optimise each piece of equipment to consistently produce long-term, high performance grit removal with unmatched reliability, and low operation and maintenance costs. The WEMCO® Hydrogritter® system removes and dewaters grit from primary sludge or influent.

Key features/benefits

  • Protects downstream equipment from grit damage
  • Downtime and grit removal expense minimised
  • Proven ability to remove fine (150+ mesh) gri
  • Production life of 25+ years
  • Cyclone clusters for higher flows

A rugged, abrasion-resistant WEMCO® Torque-Flow® pump pulls grit slurry from the grit source and feeds it into the cyclone separator.  The grit slurry enters the cyclone of the Hydrogritter® system where approx. 95 percent of the grit is captured and processed through the cyclone. The grit is concentrated into the cyclone underflow, yielding a flow of approximately 5 percent of feed. The balance of the degritted flow exits the top of the cyclone through the vortex finder to further treatment. The grit concentrate from the cyclone underflow discharges to the spiral classifier where the grit is allowed to settle. The settled grit travels up the spiral conveyor where it is dewatered and then discharged as a low moisture product ready for final disposal. The balance, containing light organics and grit finer than 150 mesh, flows over the classifier overflow at the end of the classifier where it can be piped to further treatment.
