Automatic filter press
The FullAuto Filter Press
from Fournier is a customized dewatering system.
With a small sludge sample,
Fournier can size your filter
press, choose the right plate
size, cake thickness, cloth,
etc., for your specific application with performance
guarantees. Fournier offers lab test service at no cost. The FullAuto Filter
Press, with up to 160 plates with sizes up to 2 meters by 2 meters, obtains
the driest cake achievable. The unattended 24/7 operation will improve
productivity and lighten staff workload.

Fine screening technology
Hydro International’s Hydro
MicroScreen™ rotating belt screen offers wastewater treatment plants an
advanced and versatile alternative to
a primary clarifier at a fraction of the
footprint, power use and installation
costs. It effectively separates solids
from influent wastewater using 10%
of the footprint of a conventional primary clarifier and 20% of the power. It also achieves between 50 and 60%
total suspended solids (TSS) removal and offers operators the versatility to
improve their downstream process efficiency.

Rotary lobe pumps
The full service-in-place TORNADO® T2 rotary
lobe pump from NETZSCH is designed for the
various sludge conveyances in sewage treatment plants. Removing the cover plate on the
TORNADO T2 allows quick and easy access
to the pump chamber. The rotors can be removed and replaced easily and quickly because
they are not bolted or keyed to the shafts inside
the pump head. The rotors’ geometry allows their independent removal
without the need for special tools. With the full service-in-place design,
the TORNADO T2 saves time and costs in sewage treatment, ensuring
conveyance can continue as quickly as possible after necessary downtime.

Red Meters RM4 exact density meters provide accurate, real-time density
readings of water and wastewater slurries. Built into the slurry pipeline, the
abrasion-resistant RM4 utilizes a Class 2 industrial laser to analyze passing material, performing 50 readings per
second with +/- 0.25% accuracy. Data is
then translated by a custom-developed
algorithm and displayed through an
integrated Human Machine Interface
(HMI), including density, percent solids, pressure, totalized mass, and more.
This detailed information enables highly
accurate and efficient water treatment and processing for numerous applications and industries.

Blocked chute and collision detection
The Gladiator Microwave Switch from Hawk
Measurement provides a high-power, circular,
polarized microwave pulse that is emitted from
the sending unit to the receiving unit in a transmission chain of approximately 100 pulses
per second. Used in water and wastewater treatment facilities to detect potential
blockage, barrier and machine detection,
and detection of sludge between two points. The G1 allows for better penetration and product build up than previous models.
