New centrifuge installation at Riverside Wastewater

Euroby Ltd, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of sludge dewatering equipment and the UK supplier for Flottweg AG’s range of centrifuges is proud to announce the delivery of 7 decanter centrifuges to Thames water’s Riverside Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The upgrading of the Riverside plant by Interserve Project Services Ltd includes the installation of a Cambi Thermal Hydrolysis system. Euroby’s centrifuges will be installed at the crucial pre-THP stage where careful control of the dry solid content of the cake being delivered to the THP is required.

Euroby’s contract, which commenced in May 2010 features the Flottweg C5E decanter from the innovative C series designed specifically for municipal sludge applications.

The C5E centrifuges are part of Flottweg AG’s expanding range of high efficiency decanters designed to give maximum performance with minimum cost.

The innovative design of the centrifuge bowl and scroll promotes efficient acceleration of the product in the feed zone and – in tandem with Flottweg’s patented ‘Simp–Drive’ System – allows higher hydraulic loadings with a smaller footprint, this effective size reduction also brings lower capital costs and reported energy savings of up to 30% compared with “conventional” designs. In addition, existing customers confirm that the current configuration of the new C-Series maximizes both reliability and availability.
