Microscreen drum filter tertiary polishing plant

The WPL Clic-Clo Microscreen is a drum filter tertiary polishing plant which is used when further solids and/or Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) need to be removed to help meet stringent consent standards for new and existing wastewater treatment plants.

The unique design of the drum filter maximises the surface area of filtration to achieve high removal efficiency with extremely low operating costs.


Objectives of the WPL Clic-Clo microscreen tertiary polishing plant:

  • Prevent damage to downstream processes
  • Improve efficiency of downstream processes
  • Reduce contamination to watercourses
  • Separation of effluents to enable recycling

Used in a variety of municipal and industrial wastewater treatment applications as either permanent or temporary additions to existing wastewater treatment process units. Our tertiary polishing plants are ideally configured to be retrofitted to existing works to assist with final effluent discharge compliance.


Why you should choose the WPL Clic-Clo Microscreen:

Low power consumption

  • Typical 20 l/sec typical application consumes <0.3kw/hr

Low operating costs

  • Unique design of the drum filter maximises the surface area of the filtration cloth to ensure high removal efficiencies

Low maintenance system

  • No chemicals required for maintenance requiring minimal weekly checks
– easy to install cartridge-based screen cloth, removing the need for time consuming cloth maintenance activities

Easy fitting cartridges

  • The cartridge based screen cloth that can be easily be fitted within minutes, removing the need for time-consuming maintenance activities
  • Polyamide or stainless steel cartridges can be utilised (stainless steel is more suitable to some applications where polymer dosing is taking place upstream)
  • Interchangeable cloth cartridges available

 Adaptable installations

  • Can be either above ground installation in a stainless steel cabinet or below ground installation in a precast channel

Choice of Form 2 or Form 4 control panels

  • To accommodate particular electrical specifications and can be connected to telemetry

Fully automated system

  • Process is uninterrupted during the backwash cycle

Integral pumped backwash system fitted as standard

  • Using backwash wastewater to be cleanse the cloth. Collated sludge can be either pumped or gravitated, dependent on site levels

Optional colour finish

  • Optional colour finish can be specified to coordinate with other equipment on site to minimise visual impact

Cartridge based cloth/filtration system

  • One-size cartridge fits all models
  • Easy to change on site without the need for a service call
  • Reduces spares stockholding
  • Polyamide or stainless steel cloths can be fitted
  • From 20 microns upwards to provide flexibility on flow vs flux and cater for more stringent solids consents

Installation options:

 Above ground Installation

  • Stainless steel cabinet which protects the unit from debris, leaf fall and provides sound attenuation

Below ground installation

  • Precast channel when considering a gravity flow

Skid mounted option

  • For above ground units available to hire for temporary use, or for pilot trials to ensure suitably for a client’s need before purchase
