Mode of Operation
Dirty liquid enters the specially-designed side inlet header, which slows the velocity and discharges onto the liquid surface. Generation of the liquid pool has been achieved by formation of a solids “cake” on disposable media. As this “cake” becomes tighter and thicker, liquid flow through the media is restricted, causing the pool level to rise, which initiates movement of the conveyor systems. As the liquid flow increases through the fresh media, the pool level drops, thus terminating the media index.
The solids-laden media, which has exited the liquid pool, is discharged into a disposal receptacle.
