Hydroflux HUBER has been awarded a major contract for the supply of 2 x HUBER Vormax® Grit Removal Systems, together with 2 x HUBER RoSF4 Grit Washing Classifiers for the Bolivar STP in Adelaide.
Each vortex grit removal trap is sized at 4100 L/s, and will replace the existing longitudinal systems. The new vortex system has a smaller footprint and is highly efficient in the removal of sand and grit particles commonly found in Australian sewage.
“We are excited to see our grit technology applied to another major Australian project, and again for SA Water. The HUBER Vormax® Grit Traps, together with the advanced HUBER RoSF4 Grit Washing Classifiers represent the highest performance technology available on the market.
The discharged grit will contain 90% dry solids, significantly reducing off-site disposal costs and returning much needed carbon back to the process” says John Koumoukelis of Hydroflux
Vormax® technology is designed to remove grit particles from sewage using a vortex flow path. Removing grit reduces downstream maintenance on mechanical items such as pumps, mixers and aerators.
Together with the RoSF4 Grit Washing Plant, the grit removed is thoroughly washed, so that a 90% dry solid by-product is generated. This results in a 50% reduction in grit disposal costs as compared to standard grit classifiers, and additional carbon return to the process.
This project is being delivered by York Civil and Waternish, as a turnkey project inclusive of mechanical and electrical works, construction management and civil works.
