The installation and start-up of the new centrifuge for the sludge treatment in the WWTP of Sant Jaume de Llierca has been completed.

The centrifuge installed by CORPI GIA works with an automatic differential speed regulation system between the drum and the screw. Thus, depending on the resistant torque, stable sludge drying is obtained despiteinlet variations. The centrifuge adjusts automatically and continuously to product composition fluctuations at the inlet, without manual intervention.

The hydraulic capacity of the centrifuge is 20 m3/h with a suspended solids load up to 600 Kg TSS/h. The dryness of the dehydrated sludge is greater than 18%.
