Research & Development
Solving some of the most complex problems in the constantly evolving water and wastewater industry requires engineers to have the freedom to approach issues from new and different angles. Hydro-Dyne Engineering is committed to investing in our people and process to develop new solutions to some of the most challenging issues facing our industry. Our innovators and problem solvers are passionate about improving the quality of our environment. We work closely with municipalities and industrial facilities from around the world to develop new technologies and processes that help protect downstream processes. While our industry-leading equipment already sets the standard for quality and performance in our industry, we are constantly innovating new solutions to make our products perform better, last longer and require less maintenance. We take great pride in knowing that our research and technologies work to improve the quality of water in communities around the world.
Hammerhead Onsite Screen Sizing
The Hammerhead Shark has extraordinary environmental perception through highly specialized sensory receptors. Our proprietary Hammerhead Onsite Screen Sizing service ensures the ideal screening system is designed by measuring and evaluating multiple characteristics of a unique flow. Collected data is evaluated for the proper selection of screen type, size, grid opening, operation time and capital outlay for optimal screenings capture. The end result is an efficiently designed system that effectively protects downstream equipment and saves the customer money throughout the entire plant.
The value of a properly designed screen
- Maximized screening capture
- Decreased capital costs attributed to oversized equipment
- Reduced equipment maintenance
- Reduced chance of screen failure or headworks flooding
- Improved hydraulic performance predictions
- Quantified loading in municipal wastewater, pulp and paper, food processing, brewery, pharmaceutical and other unique waste streams
- Measures existing screen performance
The need to test your wastewater flow
Every treatment plant has a unique flow and downstream processes that require specialized screening protection. Studies have shown that wet screenings quantities encountered at different plants can vary by as much as 240%, and SCRs between different screen styles can vary by as much as 50%. With so many variables affecting an individual plant’s wastewater flow, the value of a screening system specifically designed for an individual plant cannot be understated.
Factors affecting plant flow include:
- Collection system: retention time, size, pumping, EQ basins, etc.
- Population: density and contributing industries or services
- Channel design: flow distribution and pretreatment processes like coarse screening and grit removal
- I&I and weather events
