Initial Wastewater Treatment Works Inspection

Colloide have been on site to carry out an inspection of the works and the operation of the current system to provide a condition report and details on refurbishment requirements. The Final Settlement Tanks Scraper system, which is now over 20 years in operation, requires a major overall and is no longer suitable for the loading experienced. The scope of Colloide’s work will include the provision of a scraper system that will be retro fitted into the existing tanks. On this project, the main motorised control centre (MCC) panels will also undergo a complete refurbishment, with the sludge treatment and main MCC’s merging into one panel. Colloide have developed a bespoke solution which will meet our customer needs.

Bridge Scraper Installation

Removal, installation and commissioning went ahead smoothly on the 2No Final Settlement Tank full bridge scrapers on 19000mm diameter tank.

The bridge is fully fixed for the Final Settlement Tank and fitted with a stainless steel undercarriage which will rotate at a fixed speed. The Final Settlement Tank operates with a manual siphon desludging system. The bridge scraper is fitted with a park switch, which when selected will allow the bridge to rotate and stop in a designated position for access to the siphon and pipes.
