The Spiralift SC Screenings Conditioner adds the benefits of an in-channel auger screening system to an existing mechanical bar screen installation. The unit takes screenings from a bar screen and washes, dewaters, compacts and deposits them for disposal. In operation, the bar screen automatically removes solids from the liquid channel and deposits them by gravity into the SC hopper. The unit employs a heavy-duty Taskmaster® grinder to reduce solids to a small size. They are then washed to remove contaminants and organics, compacted and conveyed from the system by the shaftless screw unit.

MGD Technologies has introduced its accQmin Flow Meter for smaller pipes. The meter uses pulse-doppler acoustics, combined with range-gating signal processing, to measure a velocity profile. This approach allows the meter to measure flow rate accurately under different hydraulic conditions. As hydraulic conditions change, the change manifests itself in the distribution of velocity throughout the depth of flow. As the meter is measuring the velocity distribution directly, it adapts to the changes in hydraulics, and generates a flow pattern that is representative of the new hydraulic conditions.
