As part of the upgrade of the Goulburn Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in New South Wales, Hydroflux Huber is installing advanced screening technology to protect a state-of-the-art membrane bioreactor (MBR) process that will produce a high-quality effluent for reuse for irrigation on sporting fields and parklands.
The upgrade, which is being led by Haslin Constructions, will ensure sewer discharge meets modern-day environmental standards and that the Goulburn STP is able to cope with future population growth.
Hydroflux Huber is installing the advanced screening technology to protect the membrane bioreactor modules which are central to the plant’s process. HUBER’s RPPS ROTAMAT® Inclined Drum Screens are the core of this screening technology.
“The HUBER RPPS Rotamat® protects the membranes from accumulation of fine fibrous material and screenings that can pass through even the finest inlet screens,” John Koumoukelis, Director of Hydroflux, said.
“We use a 2mm perforated drum which allows for exceptional capture rates of fibres. A heavy duty PU seal ensures no bypass of flow. The HUBER Rotamat® design includes the integrated washing and compacting screw, meaning that only one drive is required for this unit. The entire machine is fabricated in 316 stainless steel and built to the highest German standards.”
