The new Parkes WRP was recently commissioned and replaces the existing sewage treatment system which was constructed in 1936.
Designed for 15,000EP this state of the art facility also produces recycled water that it utilized in the nearby Nth Parkes mine.
Hydroflux Epco Pty Ltd were engaged by head contractor John Holland to design, supply and commission the inlet works system.
“HyBand® Center Flow Band Screens were chosen due to their high screenings efficiency. In addition, an innovation provided for this project was to drop the screenings launder below the floor grating, resulting shorter screens.
Fine grit and sand is removed in a Vortex Grit Removal System. This technology has a compact footprint and is very efficient in the removal of 200 micron grit particles.
Both the screenings and grit are washed to remove organics prior to dewatering, which maximises organics return to the main process flow and reduces disposal costs of these byproducts” says John Carroll, Director of Hydroflux Epco Pty Ltd.
Hydroflux Epco provided all of the equipment for the inlet works, which consists of HyBand® Center Flow Band Screens, WAP/SL Wash Presses and RoSF4 Grit Washing Technology. Interconnecting chutes, manually raked bypass screens and the main launder were also design and supplied as part of the package to form a complete inlet works solution.
