Sludge transfer problem.

NOV MONO has helped solve an ongoing maintenance problem for a major German wastewater treatment plant with the installation of an EZstrip TR Muncher. The Mono Muncher has dramatically reduced the number of pipeline blockages occurring at the Karanlage Jagersfreude plant--the largest facility of its kind in the Saarbrucken area - and so helped minimise both downtime and maintenance costs.

The customer's previous macerator had been experiencing increasingly frequent blockages due to the 8-12% dried solids and fibre content of the raw sludge it was handling. The Mono EZstrip TR Muncher was designed specifically to provide efficient maceration of abrasive sludges in this type of application. The Muncher's layback cutter shafts are set at an angle to the incoming sludge flow, making it extremely effective in capturing and macerating solids held in the flow.
