Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Schneckensiebe
English term or phrase: screenings
Es geht um eine Art Schneckensiebe ("screw screens") zu Abwasseraufbereitung, deren Funktion wie folgt beschrieben wird:

"The separation process starts inside the screen which holds back solids only. The internal part of the screen is continuously cleaned by special brushes fixed on the outside diameter of the spiral. As the water runs through the screen the shaftless spiral conveys the solids up towards the compacting module where the material is further de-watered. Depending on the material properties, ***screenings*** can be reduced by more than 35% of their original volume."

Wie soll ich hier "screenings" übersetzen? Siebgut?
