Trash rakes are metal or wooden structures, usually supported by masonry, which can prevent water-borne garbage and debris such as animals, logs, boats, waterweed, etc., from entering the input of a pumping station, water mill, or water conveyance. Trash rakes can also protect penstocks, water wheels, and watergates from damage during floods. Also, trash rakes are sometimes set up for the inflow and outflow of a storm drain so as to prevent the entry of garbage in a natural watercourse.
Trash rakes are also heavy duty raking devices which are used to remove very heavy garbage. They also typically used as a stationary unit which can serve more than one bay. Majorly, trash rakes are known as the ‘first line of defence’ in any water intake structure, and sometimes referred to as Fine Screens. These rakes are fit for dealing with huge quantities of sea grass, leaves, jellyfish, logs, etc.
Moreover, sometimes, trash rakes are made up of vertical wooden strakes divided by narrow gaps, which are very common and perform extremely badly. On the other hand, metal gratings are stronger and can have narrow strakes, and a proper angle can allow self-cleaning from the water movement. Also, modern trash rakes are used by various hydroelectric plants, and can include advanced features such as the Coanda effect, wedge-wire screens, cleaning robots, etc. Trash rakes are created for water velocity of approximately 2 feet/second (0.6 meters/second), in order to prevent extreme energy loss attributable to the head loss over the trash rakes.
Trash Rakes Market: Market Dynamics
Some factors such as increasing electricity demand arising from growing industrial, residential, and commercial sectors, attributable to several government initiatives so as to increase reconstruction activities and capacities of new and old power plants in order to improve efficiency. Therefore, the activity of reconstruction and capacity enhancement of existing and old power plants, and development of new thermal and hydropower plants will drive the market for trash rakes. Additionally, the increasing number of water and wastewater treatment plants along with distribution stations all over the globe, where the separation of garbage from water flow is very important, will also propel the market demand for trash rakes. Also, trash rakes need to be maintained and repaired carefully from time to time, which may hamper the market growth of trash rakes. On the other hand, several initiatives taken by the governments of various countries in developed as well as developing regions for the cleaning of reservoirs and rivers is expected to create many opportunities for the growth of the trash rakes market over the forecast period.
The global trash rakes market is principally ruled by the Europe region, followed by the Asia Pacific region. In Europe and the Asia Pacific regions, installed and upcoming hydro & thermal power projects are expected to grow and will propel the global market for trash rakes. Additionally, the trash rakes market in the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Also, the North American trash rakes market is projected to register abundant growth, attributable to huge investments in the water & wastewater treatment plants, power & energy industry, and in the development of infrastructure for water distribution networks. On the other hand, in the Latin American and Middle East & Africa regions, the market for trash rakes is expected to grow at a stagnant rate over the forecast period.
