Too small: This was the verdict on the existing polymer processing station when all sludge treatment processes at the Klagenfurt plant in the Austrian state of Carinthia were examined with a view to potential optimisation. The old three-chamber system with retrofitted batch tanks was bursting at the seams. As a result, the flocking agent used for sludge dewatering was not really showing its full potential.
Given this situation, the people at the Klagenfurt treatment plant decided to purchase two two-chamber pendulum systems from Eurodos, each with a capacity of 6000 litres (2KP-6000). The order posed a particular challenge for the Eurodos technicians, because the space available did not allow for a ready-made standard system.
For reasons of space and logistics, both pendulum systems had to be installed in exactly the place where the old treatment station had stood – in the basement. However, there was no opening large enough to bring in the new systems, especially as they were much bulkier than the existing ones.
Eurodos therefore designed the two pendulum systems as special made-to-measure systems. The Eurodos technicians arrived in Klagenfurt with the “raw components” and assembled the tailor-made system directly in the basement.
