Sludge thickening disc scores on cost and low maintenance

disc thickener

Huber Technology has recently received an order for a size 2 disc thickener from Costain and Severn Trent Water for Itchen Bank STW.
The RoS2S size 2 Disc Thickener will be thickening 29m/3 per hour of SAS sludge @ 0.5% DS, thickened to 6% DS with the machine operating up to 12 hours a day.
The unit will be installed with frost protection so it can be mounted outside and the mechanical installation will start towards the end of 2014 with commissioning taking place in early spring 2015.
Richard Willis, Area Manager for Huber Technology, said: “The RoS2S is the ideal solution for cost effective sludge thickening at small to medium sites, having both a small footprint, low operator involvement and minimal maintenance. This is the third disc thickener that Severn Trent has ordered and we are pleased that they are looking at other innovative technology”.
