- Process Description
Grit removal from wastewater is very important to reduce operational problems of the wastewater treatment plants and to reduce maintenance of the mechanical equipment installed in it. Grit and other solids can increase wear of the mechanical equipment, cause pipe blockages, can settle and reduce the effective volume of the treatment basins. Napier Reid Vortex Grit Chambers (NR-VGC) are designed to separate grit from organics and raw sewage water. Screened wastewater enters the NR-VGC tangentially and creates a vortex current. As the NR-VGC is designed to handle variable flow, a specially designed agitator rotates and maintains a constant rotational velocity inside the VGC chamber. Under the influence of centrifugal force and gravity, grit and other solids quickly collect to the centre of the grit chamber, enter the grit hopper and settle down along the sloping floor. Grit handling pumps deliver the collected grit and solids to grit classifier for subsequent separation. The grit free wastewater, along with the organics, overflow from the vortex chamber for further treatment.
Treated Effluent Quality:
At the design flow rate, the system will remove minimum 65% of sand and grit particles greater than 150 micron (100 mesh) and having a specific gravity of 2.65.
