The Headworks® Spiralman in-channel screen is a shaftless spiral screen that combines screenings, conveying and compacting in a single reliable unit. As the shaftless spiral rotates, it clears screenings from the perforated sieve and conveys them out of the channel. The Spiral is fitted with a brush in the Sieve Zone to keep the screen clean. The solids continue through the Transport Zone, through the optional Wash Zone and ultimately to the Dewatering Zone prior to discharge. To make maintenance both accessible and easy, the entire length of the shaftless spiral screen sits in a U-trough. The Spiral remains the same diameter over its entire length, reducing the potential for blocking. The spiral in the Sieve Zone is bolted to the transport spiral and can easily be removed for brush replacement in a safe and comfortable environment.
