The Wastemaster® GCEC GCPC Screw Screen is a combined machine for the separation of solids present in effluents and the compaction and de-watering of the extracted solids. It is designed to be fed by a pump or by gravity
The suspended solids are retained by the screen increasing the liquid level in the front part of the screen.At this point the screw starts operating, cleaning the screen by means of brushes fixed on the outer part of the screw flight, removing the material, and then de-watering and compacting it (GCPC only).
The machine consists of the following parts
Compactor (GCPC only).
The conveyor screw consists of a shaftless spiral which collects the solids from the bottom of the screen conveying them without risk of clogging.
The compactor in the upper part, equipped with a washing section for lowering organic fractions, uses the conveyor screw for compaction and de-watering of the screenings (GCPC only).
