Unique functionality for removal, separation, and recovery of sludge on water surfaces

SurfCleaner - for wastewater treatment


The SCW 600 is designed to remove sludge and foam from the water surface in wastewater treatment plants, where these pollutants otherwise prohibit an effective water cleaning process. By removing and separating the sludge, the water cleaning process will run more effectively, and the sludge can even be recovered in a later process. The SCW 600 is controlled remotely by an easy-to-use app for smartphones.

Customer case – 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.”
