The Claro VortiScreen™ modular Combi Screening & Grit Removal headworks station is composed of a self-cleaning fine screen, wash press screw compactor c/w compaction tube, a vortex grit chamber / trap (or) aerated grit chamber tank system, and optional hygienic baggers for the discharged treated & dewatered screenings & grit. The VortiScreen™ vortex component can be fitted with an airlift or a grit pump. If implemented with an aerated grit tank, the system eliminates the need for a grit pump & grit classifier.
