Development and implementation of special sludge containers
 
  • Customer's request:

- transporting sludge waste of a plant to a dump.

 
  • Problem:

- the existing normal waste containers were not efficient;

- while being lifted up onto the truck the containers started leaking;

- while being transported the sludge sometimes went over the container;

- the tailboard was not waterproof;

- the containers were too small;

- because of the sludge sinking to the bottom some good was left in the container when unloading.

 
  • Consequences:

- it wasn't of any use to collect the sludge in normal containers;

- the sludge was leaking from the container which made it necessary to clean the container, the truck and sometimes even the loading point and the road;

- the sludge that leaked from the container was collected by way of wastepipes in the basin of the sewage treatment plant. But this plant got overloaded, which meant extra costs;

- because the container was too small, more driving was needed.

 
  • Our solution:

- the development of a new container by our technical staff;

- with a waterproof tailboard;

- with waterproof lids on top of the container;

- a larger container was built;

- with a special teflon bottom, by way of which the sludge could slide from the container more easily;

- 24-hour service was guaranteed for emptying the container on demand of the customer;

- flexible hoses were attached to the opening in the container to reduce the spilling to a minimum.
