At wastewater treatment plants the need for the reduction of both the volume and weight of headworks screenings is a key design element, and a significant factor in plant operational costs. Screenings washer compactors are designed to meet this need under challenging conditions. The material characteristics of screenings from coarse or fine mechanical screens can vary significantly. The loose material contains various solids, organics and substantial amounts of water. Screenings washer compactors are designed to receive screenings from primary screening equipment, a conveyor, or sluice trough. Varying in design, they all use a compacting screw mechanism to wash and dewater screenings. This results in reduced organics content, volume, and weight resulting in a substantial reduction in hauling and landfill costs.
Delta-COMPACTOR (Screening Compactor) Key Features
External End Bearing
JMS external bearing is designed to offer better access for maintenance and keeps the bearing out of the bottom of the hopper where grit collects.
Radial and Thrust Bearings with Tension Bars
The JMS radial thrust and bearings with tension bars are designed to keep back pressure from the compaction process from impacting the gear motor.
Coarse and Fine Profile Bars
Individual profile bars that are custom sized for coarse or fine screen applications, allow liquid with high organics content to pass into a catchment tray and on to the drain.
A bullet nose on the end of the screw helps maintain alignment as the plug forms at the end of the compaction zone.
Jim Brettman has been with JMS for 9 years and serves on the sales side of the business as a Sr. Application Engineer focusing on the JMS Delta-SEPARATION. He has a BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Tennessee and worked in various positions with Exxon Co. for 12 years. After locating to Charlotte, Jim ran his own business for seven years as a rep for industrial wastewater treatment equipment and systems. Jim is proud to have worked closely with Dave Myers in closing the largest single sale by JMS to date, the Boston Deer Island Delta-SKIMMER (scum pipe) project. Jim says, “I thoroughly enjoy working with a Company that embodies integrity, quality, and service as its mantra, and working with our Reps to increase the sales of JMS products.”
