The HIDRO-MIX Sludge tank mixing system is built upon the Hidrostal screw centrifugal pump, renowned for its rag and sludge handling capabilities, and replaces the traditional methods of mixing sludge storage tanks and anaerobic sludge digesters. Unlike other mixing systems, the Hidrostal concept does not require structural steelwork within the tank. The system is mounted at ground level and fixed to the outside of the tank. Large diameter nozzles are installed externally through the tank walls. The systems have simple pipe work designs with short pipe runs, resulting in minimal friction losses and the maximum energy imparted to the fluid.

Every Hidrostal mixing installation is a bespoke design that takes into account the sludge characteristics and the geometry of the tank. Proposals can be based on computational fluid Dynamics (CFD) analyses to ensure that the pump and nozzle locations are optimised, suction points are positioned to draw sludge from dead areas and discharge points are positioned to promote the most effective circulation.

There are already many successful installations in the UK in:

Sludge Cleans Waste Water in Singapore

05.01.2015 -

Clean water is in short supply in Singapore and therefore innovative thinking is necessary, as the city-state ensures its access to the scarce resource. Grundfos has received a good 1.2 million euro to sophisticate a brand new technology in which the waste water is treated through sludge. The cleansed water can help ease the strain on the water resources in the area.

Weltec Optimises Wastewater Plants

13.03.2014 -

In the future, the anaerobic fermentation and utilisation of sludge from wastewater plants will play an increasingly important role. To ensure an economically and ecologically sustainable solution, more and more municipalities decide to optimise the energy potential of their sewage plants. For a plant dimension of 20,000 to 30,000 PE (population equivalent), biogas plant manufacturer Weltec Biopower from Lower Saxony, Germany, offers an attractive retrofit package for anaerobic sludge treatment.
