Aqseptence Group offers you the largest range of grit washing systems worldwide and the most comprehensive variety of constructional and process technological designs. As such we are able to optimally tailor a grit treatment process to meet your specific requirements.
The grit/liquid mixture is fed tangentially into the circular grit chamber and after an orbit of approximately 300° flows into the outlet of the washing tank via an overflow weir. In the course of this circular movement, the grit sinks to the bottom of the washing tank by gravity.
The circulating movement of the agitator mounted in the washing tank causes a separation of the grit into light and heavy components. The agitator fingers mounted in the lower area of the washing tank cause the grit particles to rub against each other and remove sticky organic residues through abrasion. The organic residues are washed out in an up-current flow process. The washed grit accumulates at the bottom of the washing tank and thus creates an increase in the torque to be applied by the agitator motor. The grit is removed by the discharge conveyor when a certain density of grit has been reached – this level is set as resisting torque on the motor load monitor and the removal is carried out at pre-determined intervals.
