Beyond the Raked Bar Screen: A Summary of Septage Screening Methods (WWETT Show 2023)

March 23, 2023

The manually raked bar screen has been used for over 90 years to screen trash from hauled waste and wastewater.  Simplicity and low cost is the main advantage of a manually cleared bar screen but many options are available for equipment that automates the screen clearing process.  Automating the screen clearing process saves much labor and eliminates a job that few want.  The purpose of this presentation is to provide a review of the different types of screening equipment available on the market and its advantages including labor savings.

Learning Objectives:

1. Review septage screening challanges

2. Review potential labor savings by automation

3. Create awareness of lifecycle cost

4. Review various options for screening and compaction equipment in the market and discuss methods for evaluating options
