Wipes wreak havoc
in collection systems and downstream treatment when not removed… Imagine removing wipes before a small problem becomes a big problem.
Operators no longer have to compromise between manually cleaning clogged pumps or using maintenance-intensive grinders that send debris downstream only to re-weave and become problematic again. Our design uses three proven Duperon technologies to capture and remove rags and other pump-fouling debris while keeping organics in the collection system.
Introducing the Duperon Dual Auger System
a simple and compact screen that removes the majority of wipes and rags in the collection system. By removing non-dissolvable solids at (or near) the point they enter the collection system, the Dual Auger System restores systemwide integrity by allowing them to operate as they were designed, unimpeded by wipes.
… all with the simplicity and reliability that you have come to expect from Duperon innovation.

The Dual Auger System is positioned in a wet well or manhole to catch the falling waste stream from the inlet pipe. The screening unit is comprised of two vertical counter-rotating augers driven by an electric motor. The motor is completely sealed in the upper housing. The Dual Auger System is fully submersible.
There is an overflow bypass opening ahead of the screening unit. The vertical bar screen has a .71 inch bar opening with other size options available. As screenings are captured, a discharge chute extends vertically to compact, dewater, lift, and store debris, without additional augers required. The solids are held in the chute or discharged into a bin, fully contained for odor control and aesthetics. Debris management is simple, with planned and infrequent pickups to dispose of solids.
|Application Size Information||Designed to fit into manholes as small as 17 inches
Max influent pipe size: 16 inches
|Capacity||1.5 mgd (1,042 gpm) average continuous flow
5.0 mgd (3,472 gpm) for short burst, under 2 minutes
|Main Unit Dimensions||16 inches wide x 17 inches deep x 37 inches tall|
|Discharge Extension Chute||Captures, dewaters, compacts, conveys and stores screenings up to 40 feet vertically|
|Discharge Options||Below Deck Storage – Chute stops below deck. Chute is emptied by opening hatch/lift manhole cover and insert vacuum truck nozzle into discharge chute to remove debris.
On Deck Discharge – Chute extends above deck. Discharges horizontally into an adjacent bin. Bagger and freeze protection options are available.
|Bar Screen||0.71 inch opening
0.38 inch x 1.00 in bar
|Material of Construction||304 SSTL & Painted Class 35 Grey Iron|
|Typical Motor||½ hp 230/460 VAC/3ph explosion proof, non-ventilated|
|Standard Controls||Stand alone weatherproof VFD, padlock security and speed control. Custom panel options are available.|
|Installation||Install inlet pipe adapter with four (4) ½ inch concrete anchors. Use a small crane or portable gantry to lower unit down. Align trough to pipe adapter. Support discharge chute at deck level with four (4) ½ inch concrete anchors. No guides or rails required.|
The Dual Auger System builds on three proven Duperon technologies:
- Positive displacement dual augers continuously clean the inlet by capturing and lifting solids
- Brushless self-cleaning eliminates maintenance
- Discharge extension chute conveys compacted debris without full length augers.
Built-in Bypass eliminates sewer backups during power outages
