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.

CALL 315-589-4511 to confirm availability and discuss your liquid solid separation needs.
