Run Down screens offer a cost effective means of separating coarse debris and fibre from dilute slurry.
Separation is achieved using a stainless wedge wire screen – available in sizes from 0.5mm to 5mm.
- Dilute sand laden slurry (SLS) is pumped to the top of the unit and flows down the face of the screen
- The wedge wire screen deck separates the debris/fibre from the liquid which passes through the screen along with most of the sand
- A roll press at the base of the screen squeezes the excess moisture from the fibre
- The sand laden slurry then flows under gravity to the Sand Bedding Recovery Unit (SBR)
