“Our experience has been really good!” This is how Robert Springer sums up his more than ten years of cooperation with VTA in Upper Bavaria. He is wastewater manager in Wolnzach, a market town in Hallertau, the largest contiguous hop growing area in the world.
Again and again, VTA has been able to offer pinpoint solutions for the previous and very outdated treatment plant in Wolnzach. So it was all but self-evident that successful collaboration would continue at the future 15,000 PE plant, which, with the exception of the sludge treatment system, was completely rebuilt.
As much as necessary, as little as possible: True to this motto, dosing technology from VTA subsidiary Eurodos will ensure that VTA products are optimally integrated into plant operation. Chartered engineer, Wolfgang Payrhuber (Eurodos) and VTA process engineer Bernhard Scheuringer designed a precipitant station that is exactly tailored to the requirements in Wolnzach – and is of course in accordance with the requirements of Section 19 WHG (German Federal Water Act).
The double-walled PE storage tank with 25 cubic metres of usable capacity contains all the components that distinguish Eurodos products. These include extensive safety devices such as overfill protection, leakage probes, lifter protector valve, etc. Among the components in the attached dosing cabinet are two dosing pumps. Filling and discharge line, cable pull level indicator and a ladder with platform are also included.
Experience and know-how also flow into service and maintenance, which can be agreed in a maintenance contract. If requested by the customer, VTA can also take care of acceptance of the precipitant station by TÜV.
“Through continuous dosing, our systems increase operational safety and minimise the risk of failure. And because they allow larger batches to be purchased and stored, they increase profitability,” says Payrhuber from Eurodos. Added to this are their technical sophistication, environmental friendliness and an excellent price-performance ratio.
“The process was quick and easy, a contact person was there for us at all times,” reports Robert Springer from Wolnzach. He is also very satisfied with the start-up of the system and the training provided by the experts from Eurodos and VTA.
