Scoop / Clamshell

Use Of “Scoop / Clamshell” Of Trash Rake Machine At Wastewater Treatment Plants

As the capacity of Wastewater Treatment Plants has been increased over the past few years (the wastewater flow has grown), it has become a need to use a trash rake machine for the coarse screensjust as in the hydroelectric power plants. It is mostly called and known as the clamshell or scoop or grab in the industry.

The machines designed by us are used to separate the coarse trash such as fabric pieces, sanitary products, hair, and wet wipes that get mixed into the sewer system.

9 SUSAMURU machines have been installed and put into operation at İSKİ Ataköy Wastewater Treatment Plant Section II and 4 SUSAMURU machines have been installed and put into operation at İSKİ Tuzla Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The Ataköy Project has been completed by the guidance of Alkataş and Deniz Mühendislik companies, and Tuzla Project has been completed by the guidance of Alkataş company.

The solutions of these two projects that have very different construction structures are also very different. In Ataköy Project especially, the bridge crossing that allows replacement of back-up machine on the roof has a remarkable design.
