The Baby Beast 800 septage receiving station, newest in the Enviro-Care Company line of Flo-Beast receiving stations, made its debut at WEFTEC.

The Baby Beast is a smaller, more compact version of the Flo-Beast septage, FOG and sludge receiving and screening system for wastewater treatment plants. It has all the features of larger Beast models, but is designed for septage receiving has a reduced capacity of 450 gpm. That’s the flow that company pilot testing has shown to be the average required for septage truck unloading in most treatment plants. 

The unit is offered as an economical alternative to the Beast 1200 and 1400 with the same reliable operation and high capture efficiency. The Baby Beast 800 has an 800 mm drum and a shorter inlet tank, but still includes the dual drive screen and 25-degree angle of incline. The ability to control the screen and discharge auger independently allows the unit to process more septage and do so faster.

The short influent tank allows the solids-laden liquid to be discharged directly into the rotating drum screen. As the screen rotates, solids are captured on flights that carry the material around the drum screen and deposit them into the auger trough. From the trough, solids are conveyed by the auger into the washing and dewatering zone.

The percent dryness achieved depends on the solids concentration of the influent and the type of solids dewatered. A two-stage tank design prevents sedimentation, and a dual seal on the screen cylinder prevents bypass. www.enviro-care.com
