Effective grit removal systems are designed with an accurate understanding of the nature and characteristics of the grit and how it actually behaves in wastewater.

The way grit settles in wastewater is complex, governed by a number of factors including size, specific gravity, shape and tendency for agglomeration. Following extensive sampling, experience and observation of more than 400 installations, Advanced Grit Management™ offers a robust approach that closely reflects realistic grit particle behavior.

Conventional approaches that target 95% removal of grit particles of 200 micron or greater are based on outdated industry guidance going back more than 70 years. In addition, false assumptions about the behavior of grit mean many systems are falling well short even of this target. Do you know how much grit your system could be missing?
