JWC Environmental - IPEC Drum Screens

Company Description:

IFO wastewater screens are great for primary screening, effectively removing process water from offal (meat and feathers). IFU and IFS screens excel at secondary screening where flow rates are higher and solids loading is lower. The design of these screens and their slow speed operation reduces water usage, increases solids, discharge dryness and minimizes blinding. JWC | IPEC IFO, IFU and IFS Internally Fed Drum Screens are flexible in design to fit into your existing infrastructure, saving you time and money!

Technology Description:

JWC’s line of Internally Fed Rotary Drum Screens (IFO/IFU/IFS) for industrial applications are designed to provide superior solids recover from wastewater streams.  JWC has been providing reliable and robust screening solutions globally through its IPEC brand since 1979.  They have been used in a variety of food & beverage and industrial wastewater applications including beef, hog, poultry, and seafood offal, protein rendering, fruit and vegetable processing, pulp & paper production just to name a few.

 

JWC offers its IFO, IFU and IFS Internally Fed Drum Screen products as a family of solutions to meet the variety of unique industrial applications.  All of the products are constructed with 304 stainless steel with the cylindrical drums rolling UHMW polyethylene trunnion wheels with sealed bearings.  Influent into the screens enters through a specially designed headbox that efficiently distributes to flow onto the drum to maximize throughput and minimize the required size of the screen.  The drums rotate at 4-5 rpm allowing liquid to flow out while internal flights drive solids out the end of the drum.  All units include a fixed external spray bar that operates only as needed to minimize water usage. All units are customized to meet the specific needs of the application.  Options can include 316 stainless steel, internal spray bars, customized controls, and variable frequency drives.  The screening drum medias, which include wedgewire, perforated plate, and wire mesh are selected to optimize the processing performance of the application.

Technology Strengths,Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Rotary screen technologies:

  • Produces fiber for bedding, soil amendment and compost
  • Used extensively on dairies across the country to reduce concerns associated with storage and application
  • Does not significantly reduce nutrients from the manure stream
  • Can utilize many types of technology like slope screen, screw press, rotary drum and others
  • Used before many other technologies to remove coarse solids
  • Minimal maintenance and operator time required
  • Proven technology for nitrogen recovery, phosphorous recovery, storage reduction, GHG reduction, and odor control but with limited impact in all cases

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Coarse solids separation technologies:

  • Produces fiber for bedding, soil amendment and compost
