Duperon launches low flow system for wastewater screening, washing and compacting
Duperon Corporation has announced the launch of the new Low Flow System, a pre-engineered, fully automated preliminary liquid/solids separation system for wastewater treatment applications with average flows of 1 million gallons per day (MGD) or less, and up to 4 MGD during peak flows. The Low Flow System includes a Duperon FlexRake Low Flow and the new Duperon Low Flow Washer Compactor.
“Over 80% of treatment plants in the U.S. are rated for 1 MGD or less,” noted Duperon Corporation president, Mark Turpin. “The men and women who operate these smaller community wastewater systems are at the front line of environmental protection, yet they’re often working with slim budgets and few resources. After listening to the challenges facing our customers, we’ve developed the new Low Flow System as an integrated solution for screening, washing and compacting. We’ve used the same design principles that are a hallmark of all Duperon products– simple in design, easy to operate, with minimal maintenance required and a low cost of ownership.”
The Duperon FlexRake Low Flow bar screen has been an effective screening solution for small community applications since 2009. With a front-clean, front-return design that eliminates debris carryover, the FlexRake Low Flow has no jam points or lower sprockets that require below-deck maintenance. The proven SmartLink technology lifts or pivots around debris and is made of UHMW, a self-lubricating material that requires very little to no water in the channel.
The new single-auger Low Flow Washer Compactor has been designed as a companion to the Duperon FlexRake Low Flow, integrating seamlessly to remove, clean, compress and discharge screenings approximately 10 feet in any direction. With the adaptability of its discharge chute, drain connection, and motor location the new Low Flow Washer Compactor provides a flexible standard design for easy site configuration.
The packaged system achieves an 80% reduction in screenings volume and a 60% reduction in screenings weight, saving operators valuable handling time and hauling costs. It is also energy-efficient, operating under 1 hp to help municipalities conserve on power costs.
After several years of testing, Duperon is pleased to announce and add the Low Flow System and Low Flow Washer Compactor to its innovative product portfolio.
