Screw Sand Remover

Screw Sand Remover

The ESC model is usually installed downstream of sand traps so the sand extracted in the latter can then be separatedfrom the water.


The water enters the decantation hopper where the solid particles separate and sink to the bottom. The accumulated sand is extracted by a screw which is tilted at an angle and turns very slowly to avoid disturbing sedimentation and to permit unloading of the material without liquid. The clarified water flows out at the top of the decantation hopper. The sand can be cleaned in the unloading area with jets of water.
