Duperon is Different


The most extreme treatment location in a WWTP is the headworks. The headworks system is the only portion of the WWTP not designed for treatment. It is designed for the protection of the downstream equipment. It is the only defensive equipment throughout the entire WWTP process.

Headworks experience everything from routine grit to large debris dislodged by storm events. The last place any employee should be during a storm event is the headworks as dramatic flows race through he entry channels. Sadly, older technologies with rakes pinned to their frames place employees directly in harms way as they try to unjam their old style screens at the very moment they are needed most.

The Duperon FlexRake™ is different. Operators “get it” immediately. The articulation of the flexible rake captures all sizes of debris. The FlexRake™ started out as a storm debris screen. It is designed to work during the worst of conditions. Over time operators moved them to conventional headworks applications because of their safety, reliability and capture efficiency.

When evaluating headworks screens simply start with the washer compactors that receive the debris from the screen. Single auger washer/compactors manufactured by the screen manufacturer quickly demonstrates to the keen owner that the screen is designed to capture cotton and leaves. The light duty construction of the washer/compactor (WC) clearing is not capable of process anything else without jamming. Watch the robust dual auger Duperon WC process wet and dry construction debris on their website. Operators are fooled by marketing. They need the defensive robust protection of their work environment and process. For these reasons Texas WWTP operators have made the Duperon FlexRake™ and WC #1.
