SurfCleaner SCW 6000

A unique, energy-efficient system for continuous removal, separation, and recovery of sludge on water surfaces.

SCW 6000 FEATURES

  • Automatic removal and separation
    of sludge from wastewater

  • Capacity to collect and separate 6,000 ltrs of sludge per hour

  • Continuous operation 24/7, with minimal service requirements

  • Energy and cost-efficient operation,reducing costs substantially

The SCW 6000 Skimmer Separator Hybrid is developed for the wastewater treatment industry. It can collect, separate, and recover 6,000 liters of sludge, grease and other floating debris per hour. The SCW 6000 helps wastewater treatment plants reduce water use, power consumption, manual work, aeration and use of active carbon and chemicals.

 

The patented collection and separation process has been developed into a self-managing solution, consisting of only two moving parts. The separated sludge is discharged to an external storage tank. In addition to its impressive performance capabilities, it is durable and easily maintained.

 

The SCW 6000 is currently being tested at two of Sweden’s largest wastewater treatment plants, and will be introduced on the market during 2021.

CUSTOMER REFERENCE

Turning sludge into bioenergy

Currently, sludge is managed through manual flushing or being pumped away by vacuum trucks. This requires a considerable amount of water, which can result in the loss of the energy potential of the sludge. If the sludge can be collected without water, the water treatment plant can instead convert it to bioenergy and take advantage of phosphorus and minimize operation stoppages, operation costs, energy and chemical use.

 

SurfCleaner has a patented technology that collects and separates the sludge in an energy-efficient way – this will enable a significant increase in bioenergy from municipal waste streams. This technology will now be validated as a complete system that can be integrated into existing wastewater treatment plants around the world.
