NEW/REFURBISHED DRIVE HEADS FOR SOUTH WEST WATER
Wastewater treatment systems and solutions provider Jacopa has completed a contract to refurbish the grit removal system at one of South West Water’s largest wastewater treatment works at Countess Wear. The 50,000PE plant serves the fast-growing city of Exeter and the booming new town of Cranbrook, to the north-east.
Under the contract, the company has provided South West Water with a new detritor drive head for one of the two units at the works and refurbished the drive head of the other. Other elements of the contract included fabricating an organics return assembly and refurbishing the plant’s existing grit rake.
Jacopa constructed the new organics return assembly based on the dimensions of the shaft in the current unit, and other elements of the detritor were stripped, inspected, cleaned, re-painted and re-assembled.
