CST Wastewater Solutions  in partnership with Smith and Loveless Inc. is organising a series of grit seminars in Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney in February.
When improperly handled, grit can cause problems in pipes, pumps and other equipment in wastewater treatment plants, and also increase maintenance costs in the future. While the grit chamber is a key selection in any grit removal scheme, important aspects also include the selection of grit handling equipment, arranging the grit piping, and selecting components for the second-stage grit washing and dewatering phase.
Grit is washed and dewatered for odour reduction, improved grit removal efficiency and ease of grit disposal, making proper design and equipment selection even more critical.
The seminars aim to educate engineers and operators on the latest technological developments and procedures for grit removal equipment. The grit seminars will be held in Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney on the 19th, 20th and 21st of February, respectively.
The seminars will focus on: 

  • Grit removal design recommendations
  • Types of grit removal technologies
  • Grit handling design
  • Grit removal system hydraulics
  • Enhancing grit removal performance
The Smith & Loveless PISTA 360 wastewater grit removal chamber is one of the most advanced grit removal technologies in the industry, extracting 95% of grit as small as 105 microns. Michael Bambridge, Managing Director of CST Wastewater Solutions, a company that provides an extensive range of wastewater treatment and grit removal equipment explains that the PISTA’s grit removal efficiency at 105 microns sets a new benchmark against the established standard of 95% removal at 250 microns.

CST Wastewater Solutions’ latest technologies include high performance inlet screening, new vertical screens, lateral membrane pre-screens and clarifiers.
