2 screens on a rainwater network

Nov 7, 2023news

At the end of October, our technicians Cédric and Geoffrey replaced two competing screens in the Paris region, installed on a rainwater network for several years. Instead, we installed two Bar Screens XG12 type.

One of the big differences in terms of technology between the old ones and the new ones, the first ones had cables, while the second ones have a single, central strap. In this respect, it is good to remember that each Bar Screen has a width of 2000mm. With FB Procédés technology, a single strap is enough, whatever the width of the Bar Screen. The strap is supplied at the correct length, so no adjustments necessary. Finally, a strap can be changed in 15 minutes without having to stop the effluent, from the laying plane, and therefore in complete safety. Like the rest of the spare parts.

According to the customer’s wishes, we also dismantled the conveyor line because, from now on, the screening refuse will be dumped directly into waste bins, placed under the Bar screen hoppers.

In terms of the duration of our intervention, from dismantling the existing equipment to commissioning the new equipment, it took us two long days.

If you have similar needs, please do not hesitate to contact our sales team.
