 Fine Screen Retrofit

Spanish Fork WWTP utilizes the STEPSCREEN® in two identical headworks systems. The technology upgrade has made a vast difference in plant processing. Prior to the implementation of new technology, only one channel was processed. The efficiencies of the STEPSCREEN® technology allowed Spanish Fork to double flow processing and make the plant more productive. In addition, the flow is cleaner. Plastics don’t get to the digester because they are removed before they reach the channel. The removal of solids, such as plastics, rags and hair, is critical in improving efficiency and quality because fewer solids take up less space in the digesters and create more room for biosolids.
