Headworks wins million dollar screens project in Indianapolis

Sponsored by

HOUSTON, TX, May 31, 2012 -- Under a new contract, Headworks® will design and fabricate five (5) Headworks Mahr® Bar Screens for the Belmont Advanced Wastewater Treatment (AWT) Plant in Indianapolis, Indiana -- a project totaling close to $1 million.

The Belmont AWT Plant serves more than 449,000 homes and businesses in Indianapolis and surrounding communities. The plant, which is also combined with the sewer system in the old city limits, is over 100 years old. The system carries both sewage and stormwater in the same pipe. When operating at full capacity, the Belmont AWT Plant can treat 300 million gallons of wastewater per day (MGD) during primary treatment.

The five multiple rake bar screens will measure 21 ft in height and 8 ft in width with 3/8 inch bar spacing and will each be designed to withstand peak flows of 82.5 MGD. Headworks has partnered with Thieneman Construction Inc. to replace the five year old climber type screens currently operating at the plant and startup is expected to be completed by the end of August.

When asked why the Mahr Bar Screen was selected for this project, Headworks President and CEO Michele LaNoue said, "The Belmont AWT Plant needs high quality screens that can handle a consistent amount of large debris like sticks and stones without jamming or requiring operator attention. The plant can rest assured that the screens provided by Headworks will get the job done and last for many years to come."
