Screw Screen Compactor

The Or-Tec ScrewScreen Compactor:
An efficient and affordable wastewater screen

The Or-Tec Screw Screen Compactor screens, compacts, washes and lifts screenings to a convenient height for ease of disposal. The unit is provided with perforation sizes ranging from 2mm to 6 mm for municipal wastewater and 0.25mm to 2mm wedgewire for industrial applications. The unit can be mounted at an angle in a channel, in a tank or supplied for vertical installation. The shaftless design of the screw auger prevents rags or stringy material from becoming wrapped around the screw. Units are available without compactor where screening only is required.

The Screw Screen Compactor body is constructed of stainless steel. The screw can also be constructed of stainless steel or epoxy coated hardened carbon steel
