AWMA custom design and locally manufacture Inlet Screens including Travelling Fine Screens and Centre Flow Band Screens.
AWMA formed a strategic partnership with the global organisation Ham Baker Group to deliver industry proven water and waste water processing equipment. This strategic partnership will combine Ham Baker’s 120 years of proven industry experience in water and waste water processing equipment, with AWMA’s well respected local manufacture capability and customer focused solutions.
AWMA have been designing and manufacturing innovative water and wastewater control equipment for nearly 20 years. Brett Kelly, Managing Director of AWMA, believes the new Process Equipment Division enhances AWMA’s existing products and services as well as providing significant benefits to new and existing customers through single source procurement and reduced lead times.
AWMA’s unique approach to design is inclusive, ensuring sustainable solutions are developed in partnership with clients and key stakeholders, resulting in superior operational performance and reduced whole of life costs.
Brett states “there are various market and application synergies between AWMA’s and Ham Baker’s products that Australian customers will benefit from, including local design input and custom manufacture”.
Travelling Fine Screens
Our Travelling Fine Screen incorporates fabricated panels manufactured from pre-formed stainless steel perforated plate with apertures sized to suit specific applications. The panel design allows easy replacement in case of accidental damage whilst being securely fastened to the special strength 203mm pitch roller link chain.
Panel cleaning is via a two-stage cleaning process. First, a solid filled modular rotary brushing system with optimised position and bristle configuration removes the majority of screenings. This brushing system allows speedy replacement and adjustment. Second, wash water jets provide the final polish and ensure the rear cavity of the equipment remains free from blockage.
Each panel has a replaceable side seal manufactured from bearing grade ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fitted between the chain and panel to effect a close tolerance seal, with the seal fitted to the screen structure.
Centre Flow Band Screens
Screening panels are carried on a vertical travelling path, between chains suspended from substantial sprockets on a head shaft. The chains, screen panels and guides are contained in a carbon steel or stainless steel screen support structure. A feature of this type of screen is its high capacity per width ratio and ability to deal with large variations in water levels and depths.
Dependant upon the size of screen, the frame will be fabricated from rolled steel sections suitably braced to withstand loads or from pressed and fabricated plate in stainless steel or carbon steel. The head section is fabricated to hold the head shaft in guides and incorporates spray pipes and discharge trough. Covers are manufactured in stainless steel and have inspection windows fitted as standard.
