Centrifuges for Industrial Waste Water, Minerals and Oil - Manufacturing, Other

Residues containing oil are created wherever oil is extracted or processed. Flottweg decanters, Tricanter, separators and systems offer an environmentally friendly solution to the following applications in the processing industry: Processing of sand washing water and gravel wash water. Cleaning wastewater and exhaust gases in steelworks. Cleaning and processing of tar in coking plants. Processing of wastewater containing oil. Processing of oil sludge from ponds and lagoons. Processing of residues containing oil from the cleaning of crude oil tanks. Processing of drilling slurry, drilling emulsion and drilling muds. Processing of ore and minerals.

For dewatering and thickening sewage slurry, it is necessary for special properties of the bowl, gear unit and control system to be guaranteed. This is the only way to achieve maximum dewatering and thickening of the sewage slurry. The Flottweg C series is the new generation of environmental centrifuges which is characterised by familiar quality and reliability as well as an optimum price/performance ratio.

Advantages Of The C Series In Dewatering And Thickening of Sewage Sludge

  • Reducing the energy consumption by 30% compared to other decanters
  • Saving fresh water - this water is now only required in processing the polymer solution
  • Optimum price/performance ratio
  • The acoustically insulated housing means that no further acoustic protection measures are required
  • The machine is compact and easily accessible for maintenance work
  • Minimum downtimes due to straightforward exchange of wearing parts on site

Flottweg - Your Partner For Dewatering and Thickening of Sewage Sludge

The most important objective of dewatering is maximum volume reduction of the sewage slurry. This is because each tenth of a percent additional dry matter in the sludge delivers significant savings in sludge disposal. 

For thickening, it is extraordinarily important to have a high separation degree and low polymer requirement. Both of these reduce the strain on the subsequent process, and thus improve the overall performance of the sewage treatment plant. 

Flottweg has succeeded in building a particularly high-performance and efficient decanter in the C series, at the same time as reducing energy consumption by up to 30%. The C series has a 10 to 20% greater throughflow rate with maximum dewatering result although it is no bigger in size, because of the larger sedimentation volume. This means sewage treatment plants reduce their investment costs by installing a smaller decanter, without losing any performance.

Worldwide, numerous decanters in the C series are in service in an extremely wide range of wastewater applications. Renowned reference customers - sewage treatment plants all over the world - are highly satisfied and have been able to reduce their operating costs significantly. You can benefit from our decades of experience in dewatering and thickening sewage slurry.
