- Scum Pipe for Separation of Floating Scum



VA Teknik Scumpipes are designed for surface scum removal from ­rectangular clarifying tanks.

  • Efficient surface sludge removal
  • Low maintenance due to low friction materials
  • Motorized scumpipes can be operated by controllers

  • At waste water treatment plants, industrial waste ­water­ treatment plants, pulp & paper mills etc. to remove ­surface sludge from the clarification tank.


The scumpipes are made of stainless steel and the ­rotation action is controlled either manually with a hand lever or with motored gears.

The scumpipe is supported in a plastic bearing and sealed with a gasket to prevent leakage. As an ­option the sludge scrapers can be used to control the scumpipes action in terms of flow monitoring systems indicating whenever a flow arrives.

Most of our systems have timers to activate surface scum removal at certain intervals. All plastic parts are lubricated by tank water.

  • The scumpipes are made in stainless steel AISI304 with a design life starting from less than 20y and above.
  • Industrial plants with high corrosion environment or seawater treatment plants are all available through higher steel grades
  • such as AISI316L or EN1.4547
