HUBER Screw Thickener for big wastewater treatment plants
- Sturdy, highly efficient and flexibly applicable unit
A preceding flocculation reactor with stirrer ensures a sludge flock quality that allows thickening of the stabilized flocks. The screw thickener is comprised of an inclined wedge section basket. A screw, slowly rotating with variable speed, conveys the sludge gently upward through the inclined basket. Water drains through the basket.
The degree of thickening is adjustable by means of a height adjustable weir plate in the sludge discharge and the variable screw speed. Wedge wire cleaning is performed during screw operation by means of an automatic washing system.
