HUBER’s 175 years of commitment to high quality technology supports its focus on developing innovative solutions to lead the way in resource recovery.
South Dearborn has Hands on Experience with Three Dewatering Processes
Throughout the years plant staff have operated; first a belt filter press, then a centrifuge, and lastly have settled on the use of a screwpress. Their anaerobically digest sludge presented a challenging dewatering situation for them. Read about their journey and the lessons learned.
Largest EscaMax Screens in the North America “Exceed Expectations”
These large screens are rated at 71.25 MGD at a maximum of 12” headloss. In June, 2014 Huber personnel were present for hydraulic testing with impressive results. During the testing the flow was increased to 120% of its rated flow. At this extreme flow rate, a large number of rags were pushed through the upstream course screen (3/4”) and scoured from the channel bottom. A very thick blinding layer began to appear on the screen as the upstream water level approached the overflow weir. Read more about this.
Oostburg Sees Long-Term Value in Vertical Fine Screen
Even though space was limited, Oostburg’s operators knew that putting a screening solution in place would improve the facility’s operational efficiency. Also operators wanted to upgrade the WWTP’s technology from the aging and costly chopper-style comminutor in use at the time. The Oostburg WWTP in Oostburg, Wis., found the Huber’s Rotamat RoK4 vertical fine screen when seeking out a new head works screening solution. The facility’s engineers had doubted that a solution existed that could meet their requirements and limitations. Read more about this application.
Valuable Lessons Learned with Unknown Septage
When SAWS in San Antonio sought to upgrade their septage collection system they faced challenges beyond what might be normally seen in a typical WWTP. By partnering with Huber Technology, SAWS was able to navigate through challenges and put together a world class system. See what San Antonio SAWS has to say about what the Huber Technology RoFAS Septage Receiving has done to help them attain their goals.
The RoFAS is robust and durable. It takes on the large debris like a champ. The Ro 3 is a great workhorse for our grit removal and lower level debris removal. The pairing of the two product specialties works well to accommodate SAWS’ screening needs
San Antonio Water System
The maintenance required on Huber’s Screw Press is a complete 180 from what is needed for the centrifuge to remain operational. Huber’s Screw Press maintenance requirements are at the most minimal, but there is nothing minimal about what happens when something goes wrong with the centrifuge. At 3000 rpm, every problem turns into a train wreck.
South Dearborn Regional Sewer District Plant Superintendent
We have improved the quality of our solid screenings and reduced the workload on our downstream components. We’re ecstatic with the fact that the periods between rebuilds for these components have increased since putting RoK4 in place. And that is significant to our overall operational costs since each rebuild can run several thousand dollars.
Oostburg Wastewater Treatment Plant
We’re thrilled when Huber techs make unannounced visits. It’s a win-win. They get to check on what must be some of their largest perforated screens and we get to pick their brains without using a service call. They are always very helpful and ready to show us best practices that will help us in areas where we have questions.
