Submersible mixer type ABS RW

Compact, versatile submersible mixers

The RW is Sulzer’s standard range of submersible mixers, economical without compromising on reliable design. These compact, versatile submersible mixers are ideal for agitating, blending, mixing, dissolving, and suspension of solids in municipal treatment plants, industry, and agriculture. The RW mixers can easily be fitted to existing guiderails and lifting devices without modification, using our wide range of brackets and adapters.

Applications
  • Biological process
    The target of the biological process is to remove organic, biodegradable substances via the metabolism of microorganisms and related biochemical processes.

  • Equalization
    The task of mixing in the equalization process is to blend the wastewater in order to prevent sedimentation, stratification and odor formation. It may also be necessary to mix and homogenize wastewater streams that arrive from different sources. Because the water level in the equalization tanks varies significantly and can sometimes be very low, high demands are placed upon the mixers.

  • Selector
    The purpose of the selector tank is to control and limit the growth of filamentous bacteria, and then to enhance the sedimentation ability of the sludge. Sulzer provides a number of solutions for creating optimal conditions in the selector.

  • Sludge buffer tank
    The sludge buffer tank can be used for a variety of purposes. The most common application is the blending and homogenization of highly concentrated primary, secondary or digested sludge. The solution used to mix the sludge itself, or to mix the sludge with the dosed thickening chemicals, depends on the design and volume of the sludge buffer tank. Sulzer submersible mixer types ABS XRW and RW, as well as the agitator type Scaba, can be used to provide highly efficient mixing. Positive displacement, progressing cavity transfer pumps are used for sludge feed to sludge dewatering process.

  • Tertiary treatment
    Treated wastewater may occasionally require further treatment. Local discharge rules may pose strict limits that cannot be fulfilled by even the most effective process, or a higher quality of effluent may be requested for its reuse. When tertiary treatment is needed, various levels of filtration can be applied, including very fine filtration. Often, however, a final step of mixing and aeration is sufficient to achieve the target. When this is the case, Sulzer's submersible mixer types ABS XRW and RW can be used, along with submersible aerator type ABS TA–TAK and disc diffuser system types ABS PIK, DS and Sucoflow.
