Continuous Self-Cleaning Belt Screen

Model SCC

This Self-Cleaning, Continuous Belt Screen is a popular all-purpose Fine Screen Separator. The filtering belt plates effectively remove debris from raw wastewater/process water before the particles can damage pumps and other equipment. When paired with the PRO-PACTOR Screen Washer/Compactor, the SCC's raw screenings are washed and compacted into a dense, odor-free plug for ultimate disposal. This Self-Cleaning Belt Screen is suitable for numerous applications including, water treatment/wastewater treatment plants, food processing industries and pumping stations.

The PRO-GUARD line is specially engineered for installations in typical concrete channels or steel tanks. All models come equipped with a continuous belt, a structured frame, screen anchorage and support, discharge chute, self-contained rotating drive, cleaning brush and a frontal water spray. There are no rotating parts below the water line. All structural and functional parts are engineered and manufactured to prevent corrosion and maximize service life.

Waste water flows through the belt screen where debris is retained on the belt. The belt raises the debris into a hopper while liquid flows through the screen. This screen has an inherent self-cleaning feature. The way the belt rotates, on its return, the belt elements pivot to mechanically eject debris. A rotating nylon brush with wiper bar and / or internal spray provide additional belt cleaning. The belt is driven by an electric gear motor and can be adjusted in the lateral direction and tensioned. The released screenings are directed to a discharging hopper.

A Specialized Control Panel automatically activates the belt when the upstream water level rises and converts back to timer mode when the water level decreases.
