Food Process WATER RECOVERY SCREEN, 48x36, Y5017

all stainless steel...


A new Alardsieve 4836 water recovery screener / scalper sieve, hydrosieve, for solids separation, wash-water filtration, and/or waste-water recovery. A Hydrasive type static screen sieve for separating solids from water and/or other liquids such as cooking oils.

This stationary screen is configured with a special triangular-rod / wedge-wire screen specifically designed for liquid-solid separation with very precise and consistent sieve opening sizes. Solids in a liquid such as water or oil pass over the stationary screen. The liquid passes through the screen to a collection tank and drain, leaving the solids to pass over the screen for collection beneath.

An ideal separator for wash-water reclaim / reuse, by-product recovery, and / or otherwise removing solids from waste water in industrial food processing plant applications such as peeling, coring, and grading operations for removing stems, seeds, leaves, and other foreign materials from rinse water. Also commonly used in other municipal and plant waste-water treatment facilities for solids removal filtration, screening, filtration, dewatering, dehydration, desliming, sieving, and filtration. .


  • 48 inch wide by 36 inch long (top to bottom) wedge-wire screen.

  • .040 inch sieve-opening-size screen installed; --other standard sieve opening sizes can be sourced and installed to order, from .010 inch to .100 inch, with other sizes to be priced upon request. CALL 315-589-4511 to tell us YOUR sieve size specification.

  • Screens are slide-out / slide-in interchangeable for a wide range of solids separation applications.

  • y5017j_crop_email.jpg33 inch deep full-width infeed / head tank, tapering from 20 inches front-to-back at the top to 15 inches front to back at the bottom. The headbox is open and easily cleaned of debris such as stones or other such "heavies".

  • Complete with a dispersion shield over the weir to spread water evenly across the entire screen, for optimal laminar flow.

  • 6 inch threaded inlet, 8 inch threaded outlet; --allows for optional flange fittings to be screwed on, or for hose fittings to be cinched onto infeed and discharge connections.

  • 5.5 inch diameter clean-out openings on either side (for easy access behind screen).

  • y5017f_crop_email.jpg1.875 inch diameter female threaded cleanout drain in each tank at bottom level for comprehensive rinsing, cleaning and drainage of wash water.

  • Throughput capacity depends on screen sieve opening chosen. For example, with a .040 inch (1mm) sieve opening, a throughput capacity of approximately 840 gallons per minute capacity is feasible running non-greasy solids (actual throughput will depend on solids and flow characteristics).

  • All food grade 304 stainless steel construction.

  • Static screen / stationary screen water recovery sieve has no moving parts, making it a low cost, low maintenance and long-lived dewatering system.

As of this writing, this NEW solids separation / static dewatering screen is in stock at ALARD and available for immediate shipment as configured with .040 inch sieve opening screen.

  • New 5HP belt drive with pulley-type variable speed control.

  • y4759j_crop_email.jpg208 / 230 / 460 volt 3 phase electrical input.

The Cornell hydro transport food pump is frequently employed to power open water flume systems, while others pump into a closed pipe flume, which they run in a coil pattern on the ceiling to conserve floor space. The flumes provide hold time to remove heat, and extend exposure to the water, which usually includes either a sanitizing agent or a preservative solution such as Vitamin C. The power of the Cornell Hydro-Transport pump allows food producers to deliver their now chilled and treated ingredients to any point in the plant where they want to dry, mix or pack the final product. Others use the chill flume for pre-cooling blanched (very lightly cooked to kill active enzymes) food products in water prior to running them through an IQF freezer tunnel. Others use the cooling flume system just to convey product in water. In every case, the powerful Cornell Food Pump can gently move high tons-per-hour output to wherever it needs to go in the plant.

ALARD also stocks and handles various kinds of dewatering, solids-separation, water recovery and filtration equipment to recover the food product from the pump water, and to recapture, treat and/or recirculate the water as necessary, as well as drying and packaging equipment to complete the process; all tailored to the end-user's specific food product(s) and application.

With Cornell's large range of hydro-transport pump size and material configurations, and with ALARD's ability to configure and "gear" the pump to the buyer's specific needs, ALARD's Cornell Hydro-Transport based flume kits are a superb tool for a wide variety of industrial food processing applications.

As of this writing, this hydro food transfer pump is in stock at ALARD, in EXCELLENT operational, mechanical, electrical & cosmetic condition, available for immediate shipment.
