Unlike most screen compactors, the Headworks® Transpactor shaftless spiral conveyor/compactor is a high capacity dewatering device for transporting and compacting screenings material in one unit. A carbon steel shaftless spiral rests in a polyethylene lined stainless steel trough. Solids are fed directly onto the shaftless spiral upstream of the perforated drain section. The spiral moves the screenings through the transport section and optional wash module where a flow of wash water removes organics. The trough transitions into a perforated or wedge wire tube in the press zone to allow for dewatering. An orifice plate provides a restriction to solids discharge therefore increasing compaction. The unit can sit at inclines from 0-25 degrees. The transport section can be lengthened for multiple screen inputs. The Transpactor shaftless spiral conveyor/compactor can be supplied in lengths up to 30'. When an overload is detected the unit automatically shuts down and an alarm is sent.
