Sludge remains one of the biggest problems for water treatment plants.
Over the years clarifiers have been built with hopper bottoms, circular scrapers, chain scrapers and various arrangements of manifolds to remove sludge. The Robot 90 is a simple solution to the problem of removing sludge. Simply described, it is an intelligent vacuum cleaner. The programmable arms are able to go around objects, evenly cleaning the whole floor of a clarifier. With application in both round and square tanks, significant civil and structural costs are saved.
The ROBOT 90 Sludge Removal System consists of a suction nozzle on an articulated pipe arm, which extends from a vertical stand fixed in a suitable place of the sedimentation basin. The nozzle and the pipe are connected to an external pump and the sludge is sucked up from the basin’s bottom to an external container for further treatment, such as thickening or dewatering.
The system is designed to operate completely immersed in water while the sedimentation basin is in use. The settling process is not disturbed by the gentle action of ROBOT 90 and the sludge is not stirred up.
