hydroxyl radicals are formed. The radicals attack and break down the bio-recalcitrant components, thus making them biodegradable so that they can be recycled to the biological treatment. The NTF rotary drum screen is a new filter system. This internally fed rotary drum screen is driven by a chain. The inlet arrangement is a unique and innovative NWT design for which a patent application is pending.
