This septage receiving station is used for mechanical treatment of septic sludge.

HUBER Fine Screen ROTAMAT® Ro1 is installed in a tank. The septic sludge is fed into the tank and, as it flows through the Fine Screen, all coarse material is retained. A screw conveyor with integrated screenings press removes the screenings from the tank, reduces their volume and weight and drops them into a container or bagging device. The entire treatment takes place in a fully enclosed system; odour nuisance is thus prevented.

The screenings are additionally washed which makes them suitable for landfill. The filtrate is blended into the wastewater for further treatment in the WWTP.
If an outstanding separation efficiency is required, every version of Septage Receiving Station can be alternatively equipped with the well-proven HUBER Rotary Drum Fine Screen ROTAMAT® Ro2.
