SurfCleaner - Unique Technology for Wastewater Treatment


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

Testing – Treatment of Floating Sludge in Wastewater Plant

Tekniska verken testing a unique sludge treatment method

From time to time, floating sludge accumulates in a cake-like formation on the surface, disrupting the treatment process and spreading unpleasant odours. To date, removing the surface sludge has required manual flushing, energy intensive aeration, and dosing with extra chemicals. Now however, SurfCleaner’s smart method will be tested that involves a unique technique for the removal of surface sludge.

“It will be exciting to test a SurfCleaner system during the coming year. If it performs as well as we expect and hope, it will save us man-hours, energy and chemicals.”
