A Cost-Based Assessment Of Leading Grit Removal Systems

Source: Smith & Loveless, Inc.

"How much grit is my grit removal system removing?” is becoming one of the more frequently asked questions at Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs) and wastewater treatment plants. The intrinsic problem of grit and its scouring activity means that efficient grit removal is fundamental for protecting and optimizing downstream WRRF treatment processes and equipment. Advancements in cutting-edge treatment technology, including membrane systems, and the critical need to maximize equipment investments places an even greater emphasis on effective grit removal.
