California City Selects Sludge Treatment Equipment

Huber Technology Riverside California MBR

The city of Riverside, Calif., recently selected Huber Technology Inc. to provide sludge dewatering and membrane bioreactor (MBR) protection equipment for a series of upgrades to its facility.

Huber was first selected to provide the Rotamat perforated plate screen (RPPS) fine screen for MBR protection as a part of its $200 million MBR upgrade project. In a separate purchase, the company was also selected to provide sludge dewatering equipment as part of a separate project to upgrade their sludge treatment system.

Prior to this purchase, the facility used a belt filter press and centrifuge for sludge dewatering and the decision was made to upgrade the equipment to increase efficiency and lower maintenance requirements. The purchase consisted of six Ros 3 Q 800 models, one of the company's sludge dewatering products designed to reduce sludge volume while maintaining a high level of energy efficiency.

The RPPS unit was started in June 2015 and the sludge dewatering components will be installed in spring 2016.
