The Hydro MicroScreen has been added to Hydro International’s water treatment product range.

The company says the Hydro MicroScreen delivers improved biological oxidation efficiency at reduced cost and footprint. The Hydro MicroScreen changes the character of waste and industrial process water at the initial stage of the treatment train, which the company claims enables municipal and industrial facilities to realise savings through reduced energy and chemical use, reduced effluent surcharges and a removed solids output that can be used to offset costs.

The technology continuously filters settleable material out of water at a very fine level without clogging, which makes it suitable for a variety of municipal and industrial water treatment applications. Municipal processes include primary wastewater treatment, primary sludge dewatering and upstream protection of technologies such as membranes, sequencing batch reactors, dissolved air floatation and moving bed bio reactors; industry segments that will benefit from the Hydro MicroScreen’s reduced-footprint, chemical-free solids removal include food processing – beef, poultry, vegetables, fisheries – dairies, breweries and wineries, tanneries and the pulp and paper industries.
