Industrial Screener Study
In 2014, a project for an industry was completed that included installation of new pumps, a force main, and chemical feed equipment so that all the waste generated at that location could be pumped to an existing 18-inch interceptor owned and maintained by a public municipality. This project also included the removal of two existing mechanical screens as well as the mechanical conveyor utilized to carry the screened material to a dumpster.
Following completion of this project, the industry decommissioned their onsite wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) since all their flow is now treated by the public municipality. Part of the agreement to take industry’s flow for treatment was that the public municipality would monitor the waste being pumped to their WWTP to determine if screening would be required in the future. It was determined that some of the materials being pumped to the WWTP facility was causing treatment problems and that the installation of screening would be required. American Structurepoint is performing a study for the industry to determine the most cost-effective means of reinstalling salvaged screening and conveyance equipment. The project will also include the installation of new submersible pumps; upgrades to the chemical feed system; installation of a composite sampler; and all associated HVAC, electrical, and controls improvements.
