Saveco Enviro-Care FSM Wet Well Basket Screen Wastewater Pumping Station Sewage Rags

Saveco Wet Well Basket Screen

Screening plays an important role at municipal or industrial wastewater treatment plants. Stones, wipes, rags, and other large debris in collection systems ultimately end at wastewater treatment plants. This material clogs pumps, aeration systems, and other critical process equipment, resulting in high maintenance costs and inefficient operation.

SAVECO’s FSM Basket Screen is a coarse screen used in pumping stations and treatment plants to effectively capture and remove large solids, rags, and debris from municipal and industrial wastewater.

General Description

The screen basket sits below the influent pipe in the wet well to remove debris from the wastewater as the flow passes through the basket. The basket is raised and lowered on guide rails using an electric hoist and stainless steel cable. Curved guide rails above ground allow for easy dumping of the screenings into a dumpster. The screenings drop onto a chute that directs the screenings into the dumpster.

The screen is raised and lowered by the operator via a local control panel with push buttons.

As the basket rises from the wet well, water drains from the screenings. The operator completes emptying of the basket with a rake. Limit switches are installed on the cable hoist to limit the travel of the basket screen.

The basket consists of a stainless steel box with steel bars and perforated plate on the sides of the basket. When the basket is raised, a screen is lowered over the inlet to temporarily screen the wastewater entering the wet well. Therefore, no debris gets into the wet well when the basket is emptied.
