The key to every grit washing/dewatering system is to minimize organics without losing the grit that damages downstream processes. The Hydro GritCleanse allows you to have your cake and eat it too.

Developed with fine grit removal in mind, the GritCleanse unit maximizes fine grit retention while effectively removing 95% of the organic matter. Utilizing 40-plus years of knowledge in grit behavior, the GritCleanse unit design takes advantage of a tangential feed to create a predictable rotary flow pattern that allows the entire surface area of the clarifier to trap grit particles. The GritCleanse has been field verified to capture 95% of all grit ≥ 75 micron. 

Paying to landfill water and organics contained in grit can significantly increase a plant’s operating costs. Water and organics increase weight and volume that needs to be hauled as well as the tipping fees at expensive landfills that can accept this type of material. 

Reducing organics and water in grit output directly reduces the volume, weight and quantity that you will need to handle, truck and dispose of. Why pay to landfill materials that your WWTP is perfectly equipped to process itself? 

This short video will help you discover how fluidized bed grit washing works, as well as the numerous benefits that the system offers. The Hydro GritCleanse has been optimized to address the maintenance difficulties and operational issues inherent to conventional fluidized bed grit washing system designs. The result is a system that outputs clean and dry grit while remaining easy to maintain and operate.
