Reputation Of Groundhog Slurry Separators To Deal With Sand Laden Slurry Grows
Pollution Control has recently installed two Groundhog separators to add to the list of trouble-free separators working on sand-laden slurry. They have replaced screw press-type separators (one in Dorset and one in Cheshire). The customers found that although screw presses initially worked well, after changing their bedding regime to sand, excessive wear was noticeable, making them an expensive machine to keep in service.
Existing support steelwork was modified, and both separators now require minimum maintenance.
Pollution Control has also developed a Groundhog sand washing and dewatering process to reclaim 75% – 85% of sand bedding. The equipment uses hardened steel parts to provide minimum service requirements.
