Link-Belt Type AS Grit Collector
Link-Belt® Type AS Grit Collector

The Type AS Grit Collector is designed for small plants with flows up to 10 MGD. The unit consists of a hopper with an inclined screw and grit washer for removing and washing grit. Air is provided to maintain uniform velocities at all flows.
