The GC Grit Classifier is a grit removal, conveying, and dewatering unit for flows ranging from 15 gpm to 950 gpm. Each model is carefully designed to effectively separate grit from wastewater or grit slurry. The unit’s design creates an even laminar flow, which enables the grit particles to settle. As the grit settles, a shaftless screw carries the grit from the bottom of the hopper to the discharge, further washing and dewatering the grit. Decanted water flows over a weir and is returned to the waste stream; the dewatered grit is then discharged into a container for disposal.
The unit is constructed from either 304 or 316 stainless steel. It is robust, compact, and fully enclosed to minimize maintenance and make installation simple.
