Solving Pump Clogs Without Spawning A Million New Problems
With all the potential debris running through wastewater collection systems — including higher concentrations of “flushable” wipes than ever — the debate over chopping them to bits, or not, has become a fundamental question for wastewater utilities. Now, new perspectives and new mechanisms are giving wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operators new opportunities for cutting the wipes problem down to size.
Don’t Let Bad Customer Decisions Wipe Out Your Entire Treatment Train
Flushable wipes are wreaking havoc in collection systems and treatment plants around the globe. While this is not a new issue to those in our industry, COVID-19 has made it a mainstream topic as more households consume disinfecting and flushable wipes. The improper disposal of these down the toilet can have negative impacts on the operating cost and efficiency of an entire collection system and treatment train. Here is how nipping the problem at its source can pay dividends throughout the process.
Smart New Approaches To Wastewater Screen Design
Depending on the age and design of wastewater infrastructure, it is easy for screening performance at the headworks of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) to get caught between a rock and a hard place. With so many challenges, what can be done to reduce the high risks of performance inefficiency, costly maintenance, or outright equipment failure? Fortunately, next-generation bar screen designs are poised to address these issues.
Is There A Better Way To Cut Sewer Pump Clogs Down To Size?
Some of the more challenging problems facing sewer systems and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) have less to do with wastewater and more to do with debris that has no business being there in the first place. Water Online spoke with Duperon mechanical engineer Steve Dill to learn about more resilient approaches to minimizing costly pump jams by eliminating debris closer to its source rather than just chopping it down to size.

The Duperon® FlexRake®: Inventing A Product That Defined A Segment
In 1993, the Duperon® FlexRake® entered the market as the first multi-rake wastewater screen to operate without a lower sprocket, bearing or track. Designed by Duperon Corporation founder Terry Duperon, the patented equipment reflected his belief that mechanics should operate as simply as possible. The result was a mechanically-cleaned bar screen that consisted of just three main components — screen, raking device and drivehead. Despite its simplicity, the unit quickly proved to be far more reliable than other, more complicated designs. Paired with the industry’s first five-year warranty in wastewater, the Duperon® FlexRake® soon became a benchmark for low maintenance and ease of operation.
Duperon Expands Solids Handling Product Line With Washer Compactor Discharge Extension Option
Since the beginning, Duperon has collaborated with customers to provide customized solutions for site-specific applications. Our most recent development to follow in this tradition transports debris up to 40 feet directly from the discharge of the washer compactor. The Duperon Washer Compactor Discharge Extension Option entered development when we heard several customers describe the difficulty of conveying screenings. While their applications varied — some required vertical conveyance, some had a limited footprint for operations, some had had enough of the frequent jams of their vertical conveyors and some others needed a long horizontal run — their difficulties with current solutions were shared.
