The challenge

  • Wide range of application requirements, such as flocculation, flotation, chemical make-up and storage as well as sludge storage and mixing
  • Minimize capital and operational expenditures by cost effective design and highest efficiencies
  • Highest reliability required, since wastewater treatment plant cannot be shut down

The solution

  • Sulzer supplied 11 top-mounted and 4 side-mounted agitators for 8 different applications
  • Flexible design, for both top-mounted and side-mounted agitators
  • Tailor-made agitators for each position meet the demands of installation and process requirements
  • Long and trusted experience in the field ensured right agitation intensity at minimum power

The reliable and flexible design of the Sulzer agitators match the most demanding process applications of our customers.

Customer benefit

Long-term customer relationship and Sulzer’s well-proven application knowledge within industrial wastewater treatment were the key factors for Aquaflow when selecting Scaba agitators. For example, sludge agitators were selected on the basis of the actual sludge characteristics, and flotation mixers can handle an air content of 40%. Side-mounted agitators were equipped with longer shafts to adapt to the ctual tank wall thickness. With Scaba agitators, minimum power is needed while reliability is ensured.
