Protect treatment equipment and processes from abrasive wear and sedimentation
The HeadCell® system is a force multiplier for the rest of the treatment plant: by removing grit and solids upstream in the process, critical and often sensitive downstream equipment is free to operate at full design capacity. Sedimentation and abrasion damage are drastically reduced, meaning that less energy and less maintenance is required.
The HeadCell® outperforms all other methods of grit separation, particularly when it comes to fine grit removal. Conventional and less capable systems can capture the larger particles, but it is fine grit - as small as 75 micron - which causes most problems for plants.
The HeadCell® system can be guaranteed to capture 95% of all grit 75 micron and larger.
Maximize wastewater treatment performance and free up plant space
Structured flow and low velocity operation extend product life significantly. The HeadCell® operates all-hydraulically, and requires less than a foot of headloss to operate, which saves your plant money.
Tray sizes and the number of trays can be modified to meet your site’s specific layout, flow, and performance requirements and can often be retrofitted into existing basins. Multiple units can be provided to accommodate any flow and / or any turndown ratio.
Double the treatment capacity in the same footprint as existing grit equipment
There’s nothing like the HeadCell® - the unique and proprietary structured flow configuration minimizes grease build-up, and its small footprint gives engineers the flexibility to incorporate future treatment capacity increases.
