What is Grit Collection Technology?
Grit is made up of small particles of substances such as sand, sludge, and other abrasives that can be found in sewers, septic tanks, rivers, lakes, and streams.
Grit from wastewater is particularly difficult. It's not just sand. Eggshells, bones, and coffee grounds are some of the items that end up in the sink. It could be sand and gravel washed into a sewer drained from streets. The size and shape of these materials are never consistent.
The equipment’s and techniques that removes grit and other particles from the water before it is used in industrial or domestic settings is known as grit collection technology.
What is the Process of a WWTP using Grit systems?
Every day, grit collecting technology is used in wastewater treatment plants. Not only do these plants have to eliminate odours and bacteria, but they also have to purify the wastewater. This is a step-by-step procedure.
1: A screw pump regulates the flow rate of water. Bearings are critical to the screw pump's longevity;therefore, you want high-quality parts. Engineers at Netsol examine the lift and flow rates you require, as well as the incline and required speed, to build the best pump for you.
2: To prevent pipe damage and obstructions, screens filter all big materials such as paper towels, plastic wrappers, and toilet paper. The screens get smaller and smaller as the wastewater passes through the machine. Screens can have gaps as tiny as 0.06 mm and as large as 1.5 mm. A garbage or screen rake that automatically clears and eliminates the debris may be used to clean the screens.
3: There are grinders that grind the waste in between the various screen sizes. The goal is to continuously grind garbage and capture it in filters until the water passing through is clean.
4: Comminutors capture huge materials and chop them into smaller, more consistent pieces for the grinders to work with.
5: Grit chambers and grit collectors are pieces of equipment’s that collect grit and transport it to a landfill or disposal facility.
Types of Grit Removal systems
1: Aeroductor - The Aeroductor technology avoids having any submerged motorized parts. It can be made of stainless steel to keep it from corroding. The fact that it can separate and wash grit at the same time is its main advantage.
2: H-PAC - Head works packaged systems are made of stainless steel and do not corrode. The grit chamber and screen can both be bypassed.
3: Raptor - The Raptor Grit washer is a fantastic choice if you need a grit removal device with a conical design that washes and separates grit and particles with precision. It's made of stainless steel, which helps to keep it from corroding. It can handle a wide range of flow rates and achieve grit discharge rates exceeding 90%.
4:Grit Classifier - You can choose from a variety of Grit Classifier systems to get the greatest fit for your needs. A screw conveyor removes grit that has reached the end of its useful life. The screw conveyor is built to be strong and long-lasting.
5: Grit Collector in-Line - An in-line grit collector employs aeration to keep particles from settling. It's best for a system with a daily flow rate of fewer than 6.0 million gallons. For easy maintenance, motorized parts stay above water.
