ACME AUTOMATIC SCRAPER STRAINERS FOR GREYWATER RE-USE IN INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS
The strainers employ an advanced design that can provide the automatic removal of solids and large particles using only dirty water for blowdown, unlike conventional backwash strainer designs. The strainers are available in sizes up to a 66" body in steel or corrosion resistant metals.
These units are ideal for removing large, irregularly shaped solids and contaminants from greywater for recycling in cooling applications, non-potable water systems and for the protection of downstream fine filtration equipment. Screens are available down to 75 microns to cover a broad range of straining requirements. Jacketed bodies are available for viscous liquid applications. The strainers are custom fabricated to engineer's or plant specifications and can be designed to fit into existing conventional strainer locations, avoiding costly piping rework. Designs also exist to handle viscous fluids like black liquor and extremely high solids loading, typical in petrochemical applications.
Of particular interest to industrial users are recent applications to filter influent and effluent at low pressures and on the suction side of pumps, a first for an automatic strainer. The Acme design has demonstrated superior resistance to screen clogging, resulting in less downtime and lost production.
Acme strainer vessels are now available in FRP construction with Monel internals for superior resistance to corrosion in seawater applications. Regular carbon steel vessels with or without rubber lining and stainless steel fabrication are always available.
