Sludge Removal System – rectangular scraper

JMS, Jim Myers & Sons, Mega-SCRAPER hydro-dynamically designed blades and reciprocating motion produce a thickening effect of the sludge blanket while creating a zone of influence that moves solids toward the sludge collection pit. On the forward stroke this blade design transports sludge forward, and slides under the blanket without disturbance of the sedimentation process on the reverse stroke. The speed of the reverse stroke is 2-3 times the forward stroke speed. Based on sound principles, but flexible by design, it is applicable in both water and wastewater sedimentation systems.

Maintenance Advantages

  • Easy installation with no on-site welding or cutting needed
  • Robust design for reliable continuous or intermittent operation
  • Minimal moving parts means low maintenance needs
  • All stainless steel and UHMWPE materials of construction

Process Advantages

  • Scraper blade design maximizes sludge movement toward the sludge pit with minimum disturbance of the sludge blanket, reducing sludge volume
  • Reciprocating motion produces a thickening effect of the sludge blanket
  • Customizable for 100% coverage of new or existing basins, suitable for use with JMS Mega-SETTLER systems
  • Optimized energy transfer triangle for maximum torque development

Experience Advantages

  • JMS 50+ year legacy of outfitting sedimentation basins
  • Uses proven JMS design enhancements critical to the longevity of the system
  • Made in the USA
  • Retrofit SuperScraper™-type systems
