Sewage sludge turner

Application Description:

  • Plant: Sewage sludge turner
  • Customer requirements:
    • Fail-safe power and energy supply
    • Long travels
  • Solution from igus: Series 3500

With the HUBER SOLSTICE sewage sludge turner, solar drying becomes a technology that combines sustainability in ecology and economy. Dewatered sticky sludge is reduced in mass and volume by solar drying to approx. one quarter and transformed into granular material. The plant can be used to recycle drinking water from the polluted Bahr-El-Baqar sewer system for 500,000 people.
