TrojanUVSigna Pilot Trailer at WEFTEC
The above TrojanUVSigna pilot trailer was a popular attraction at this year’s WEFTEC in New Orleans. Several people went through it and saw just how easy conversion to UV can be.

Hydro International made an announcement at this year’s WEFTEC to expand their grit system capabilities. The GritCup™ and SpiraSnail™ grit washing and dewatering system are the latest additions to Hydro’s line of Advanced Grit Removal. The GritCup™ and SpiraSnail™ uses many of the best design features found in Hydro’s advanced grit removal systems. The free vortex washing in the GritCup™ provides highly effective grit washing reminiscent of the Eutek TeaCup® and SlurryCup™. The SpiraSnail™ clarifier design is based on the same hydraulic principles as the Eutek HeadCell® utilizing the conical shape to provide the surface area required to remove fine grit particles. The end result is a system that offers cost-effective automated grit washing and dewatering with no water requirement.
The GritCup™ and SpiraSnail™ are designed for plants with peak flows up to 10 mgd. The system is guaranteed to capture 90% of all grit 106 micron and larger with less than 20% volatile solids and greater than 60% total solids in output grit.
We are excited to share with you a new improved Aqua Guard screen and brush.
The UltraBrush™ is superior to the standard Aqua Guard® brush:
-Bridges have been added between the 4 rows of bristles
-Bristles are longer for greater penetration into the belt for better debris removal
The bridges double the effective circumference of the shaft making it harder for stringy items to wrap tightly around the core and inhibit small solids from adhering to the brush.
The brush design combined with the 3 times higher rpm (via a new brush drive motor) means the brush stays cleaner longer and is easier to clean and maintain.
Changing the brush has been made easier with the new Aqua Guard® Ultra Clean™. The brush is changed from the side of the machine instead of the rear. No more reaching into the rear of the screen to remove the brush. A video demonstrating the side-mount brush removal can be found by clicking here.
The UltraBrush™ can also be installed on most existing Aqua Guard® MN versions. These models come in a split core design, like the current brush, and are changed from the rear of the machine. Attached are brochures for the Aqua Guard® UltraClean™ Screen as well as an Aqua Guard® Rebuild.
