Rotary drum screens, also known as rotary drum filters or trommel screens, play a crucial role in wastewater treatment. These wedge wire screens are designed to remove solids from liquid wastewater streams, ensuring the smooth operation of downstream treatment processes. 

Understanding Wedge Wire Rotary Drum Screens

These screens consist of a rotating cylindrical drum made of wedge wire panels. Wastewater enters the drum, and as it rotates, solids are captured on the screen surface, while liquid passes through and is collected for further treatment. The captured solids are subsequently removed from the screen surface, ensuring uninterrupted operation.

What is the design of the rotary drum screen?

Rotary Drum Screens Key Design Components

▪ Drum Configuration:
Diameter and Length: The size of the drum depends on the anticipated flow rate and the desired screening capacity.
▪ Screen Panel Design: Choose between perforated panels or wedge wire panels based on the nature of the solids in the wastewater.
▪ Screen Opening Size:
The size of the openings in the screen panels must be carefully select ed to capture the solids while allowing liquids to pass through effectively. This depends on the particle size distribution of the solids in the wastewater.
▪ Drum Rotation Speed:
The drum's rotational speed affects the residence time of solids on the screen surface. Optimal speed ensures efficient separation while preventing clogging.

Considerations for Rotary Drum Screen Design

▪ Hydraulic Loading Rate:
Determine the maximum flow rate of wastewater that the rotary drum screen will handle. This factor dictates the required screen area and drum size.
▪ Solids Loading Rate:
Analyze the expected concentration of solids in the influent to size the screen appropriately.
▪ Material Selection:
Choose materials for the drum and screen panels that are resistant to corrosion and wear, as they will be in continuous contact with wastewater.
▪ Cleaning Mechanism:
Implement an effective method for cleaning the screen surface to prevent clogging and maintain screening efficiency. Hence, the significance of the wedge wire screen becomes evident, and its self-cleaning function exhibits an anti-blocking effect.
▪ Safety:
Ensure the design adheres to safety standards and includes features like emergency stops and guards.
