Wastewater/Process Screens

Wastewater treatment costs add up significantly for any facility — not just treatment itself but also
potential municipal costs or fines imposed for BOD, TSS and TKN*. Lyco Manufacturing offers a full line
of wastewater screens for a broad range of applications, from poultry rendering and slaughter to
vegetable processing and everything in between.

*BOD – Biochemical Oxygen Demand, or a measure of the amount of oxygen required to neutralize
organic wastes.

TKN – Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen, or the total concentration of organic nitrogen and ammonia.

TSS – Total suspended solids gives a measure of water turbidity. With TSS, values commonly expressed
in ppm (mg solids per liter of water).

  • Double Drum Wastewater Screen

    Processors can gain significant savings with the Double Drum Screen two-in-one screening system to reduce industrial waste and increase product recovery. The Double Drum screen combines .080″ primary and .020″ secondary screening into one machine. Operators can save space, costs and time by eliminating the need for two single-stage screens. Effective with poultry, vegetables, potatoes, fruit or snack food processing, the Double Drum screen offers durable, rugged construction and an established reputation for successful, reliable use in the industry. Users call this the best wastewater screen in the world.

  • Single Drum Wastewater Screen

    Processors can gain significant savings with our Single Drum Wastewater Screen to help reduce industrial waste and increase product recovery. Efficiently performs liquid/solid separation for red meat, pork, poultry, seafood or vegetables. Wedge-wire screens offer greater cleaning efficiencies, or reduce water requirements with an optional, patented Traveling Spray CIP option. More operators rely on Lyco’s Single Drum Wastewater Screen than any other type. Cast Stainless running rings last forever.

  • Zero Maintenance Screen

    Lyco Manufacturing takes reliability to the next level with its Zero Maintenance Screen design, eliminating trunnion wheels and bearings. The maintenance-free design removes the need for routine lubrication of the bearings. Lyco is known for making the most robust rotary screens in the industry. The company provides a lifetime warranty on its cast stainless steel running rings. As with any machinery, chain and sprocket drive systems still require routine lubrication to ensure optimal performance.

  • Water Reuse System

    Lyco’s Water Reuse System can save money, cut cleaning and maintenance time, and reduce consumption of water resources — up to 15 million gallons per year. This revolutionary system removes suspended solids and reuses water from any slaughter process — poultry or red meat — and returns this water back to the main process. The system’s small footprint makes it ideal for many water reuse applications. A 200 GPM saving can return more than $150,000 a year.

  • Micro Drum

    Processors can gain significant savings with the Micro Drum Screen system by reducing industrial waste and increasing product recovery. Lyco’s Micro Drum removes particles as small as .008″ – 60% smaller than the .020″ particle removal for typical screens. Test one of our Micro Drums and prove it to yourself.

  • Stationary Screen

    The Lyco Manufacturing Stationary Screen de-waters products, such as beans and vegetables, or can perform rough screening of wastewater. The wastewater function cleans up pea, bean, corn, potato or meat waste. Sanitary construction and a tilt out screen make cleanup a quick process. High-quality craftsmanship guarantees long life and performance.

  • Sealed Drum Separator

    Sealed drum separator features enclosed construction that contains odors, improves liquid recovery and aids in temperature control. Perfect for rendering operations, this system effectively applies heat to extract moisture and separate fat, producing superior crax to the press versus a perk pan, to create rich, granular meals for animal feed or other industrial use. Drum slot spacing offers solids removal down to 0.020 to help reduce insoluble impurities and avoid clogs in screens, nozzles and other equipment further down the processing line. Captures a greater amount of solids to reduce waste and increase product recovery.

  • Screw Press

    Extract more water with a Screw Press from Lyco Manufacturing. Reduce the weight and volume of transported materials to save time and energy. Or use inline after a water jet deboner in poultry operations to eliminate excess water. Combine the Screw Press with any Lyco wastewater screen for greater water reduction.
