Features and structure
The QUILTON automatic multi rake bar screen has a series of structural features that make it one of the best options for roughing large solids.
COMPONENTS OF THE MULTI RAKE BAR SCREEN
- Structure: a stable, solid structure involving two interconnected sides. This design arrangement means it can adapt to new and/or existing channels.The following material qualities are available: AISI-304, AISI-316, Duplex, Super Duplex, etc.
- Bars: these involve rectangular or trapezoidal profiles. The use and pressure drops involved will not only require a different spacing, but also different lengths of bars.
- Cleaning combs: the raking combs collect and raise the solids retained by the bars. The teeth are inserted between the bars on the bar screen without resting on them, and thereby suitably remove the roughed solids.
- Drive belts: the drive belts, mounted on the sides of the equipment, are used to convert radial movement into linear movement and convey that movement to the cleaning comb. For the manufacture of bar screens, QUILTON uses a preassembled belt that has undergone a special treatment to make it stronger and improve its resistance to corrosion. This treatment reduces wear and stretching, prolonging its useful life.
- Motor: the combs are displaced by a gear motor connected to the drive shaft, which in turn uses the lateral side rails to transfer its rotational movement to the guided movement of the chain. On all its bar screens, QUILTON installs gear motors made by leading brands to guarantee that its equipment provides a high performance at a low consumption.
- Cleaning system/scraper: this consists of a discharge ramp, and a soundly bolted PEHD 1000 polyethylene scraper. Its main purpose is to separate the roughed solids from the discharge ramp by gravity and deposit them in another piece of equipment or in a waste collection skip.
