New IWJS Screeners Make Big Saving for Thames Water


IWJS has taken delivery of 2 new CD Enviro portable screeners for its main Southern fleet operations.

 The MSU-10 screener has been purpose designed to facilitate efficient liquid and solids separation for a variety of applications. The design of the MSU-10 into a single unit allows for transportation by a standard skip loader vehicle for easier site access. Obviating the need for crane lifts and associated risk assessments and method statements, reduced transportation costs and ensures a rapid set up on site.

Commenting on the savings that the new screeners can make for its clients when used in suitable applications, Peter Maasz, Business Development Director, for IWJS Ltd said:

“On their first outing to a Thames Water site they reduced 900m3 (over 1,000 tonnes) of heavy grit and rag to just 48 tonnes, which gave a massive saving to the client. Obviously this means we can offer similar savings to our other major clients in the water utilities and also to customers in associated industries. In addition these new screeners also offer significant environmental benefits by reducing tanker movements to a minimum.”

The units ensure operating costs are kept to a minimum with a generator of no more than 40Kva to run the unit. The unit is pre-wired and fitted with its own custom designed control panel, isolator and electrical sockets for easy connection to power sources available on site.

The benefits to IWJS customers include increased speed and operational flexibility when responding to particular needs at a given site. Resulting in much more efficient screening of waste water solids to achieve a highly significant reduction in excess bulk water when tankering away from locations to reduce costs.
