The EscaMax® is particularly well suited in situations where excellent separation efficiency is required in deep channels with high water levels. The sturdy EscaMax® screen is able to reliably cope with high amounts of gravel and grit. The two-dimensional screening elements prevent especially long fibres from passing through the screen and thus achieve the maximum separation efficiency.
Perforated screening elements provide superior separation efficiency in comparison with bar screening elements. It has been determined that two-dimensional perforations are better than one-dimensional bars. Formation of screenings rolls is prevented by rake bars extending over the full width of the screen in combination with the screen's installation angle. Even cans and bottles are lifted by these rakes.
At their upper turning point the perforated plates are continuously cleaned by a fast counter-rotating brush which increases the cleaning energy and thus significantly improves the cleaning efficiency. Cleaning is supported by an integrated spray bar.
