Schwing Stetter India, a prominent concrete equipment manufacturing company in India will be a part of IFAT Expo 2017, India’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, refuse and recycling. Schwing Stetter marched their way into the Industrial and environmental technology equipment segment with the launch of an exclusive range of sludge pumps and muck pumps back in IFAT 2015.
The market for sustainable technologies in water as well as wastewater treatment are driven by new opportunities arising due to the global economic meltdown. Sludge pumps are highly useful to the mineral, petrochemical, food processing and thermal power industries. This product will be highly beneficial to our country, where drainage water can be filtered into a sludge that is converted into bio organizers – fit for direct consumption.
Our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi has been emphasizing the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, India’s most significant cleanliness campaign. With this objective in mind, Schwing Stetter India has launched its exclusive high capacity, high volume “Sludge pumps, Muck pumps and wastewater treatment solutions”. Schwing sludge pumps provides turnkey solutions for transport and storage of sludge’s as well as materials with high solid content.
Over 143,449 Metric Tons (MT) of municipal solid waste are generated daily in the country. This is estimated to increase at 5% annually.
About 8 million tons/year of hazardous waste are generated each year. Out of which, 4.8 million tons are recyclable.
The KSP range of sludge pumps can be used for the following:
- Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP) – Where sewage sludge is mechanically dewatered with foreign particles
- Waste Recycling – Recycling waste sludge, oil sludge, salt mud and radioactive waste
- Construction industry - Recycling Bentonite Clay mud Mortar tailings
- Mining, Refineries and Power Plants - Recycling red mud, gold slime, iron sludge, zinc sludge, metallic oxide sludge and Fly ash
- Chemistry and industry - Recycling organic and inorganic materials, stabilized chemical waste, lime slurry, food-processing, by-products and paint sludge’s
Mr. Anand Sundaresan, Chairman, SCHWING Stetter Sales & Services Pvt. Ltd said, “With detailed project planning, the sludge pump system has been tailored precisely to adapt easily to the inflexibilities of wastewater treatment plant service. These pumps are used worldwide in waste water treatment plants, waste recycling, refining and in the chemical industry. We are sure that these products will play a key role in cleaning and discarding of sludge and waste in many industries. The IFAT exhibition is indeed a great platform for the introduction and launch of these products in the Indian market.”
Mr. V.G. Sakthikumar, Managing Director, SCHWING Stetter Sales & Services Pvt. Ltd said, “At Schwing Stetter, we have always paid attention to environmental issues. Sludge transportation is the most challenging pumping application in a wastewater treatment plant and Schwing Stetter has gained extensive experience through decades of involvement in this area.
