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.”
