 was delivering we knew it had the potential to play a key role in our business.”
Qualitech’ s new D:MAX will be used to process a variety of waste materials from digesters at wastewater treatment sites at a rate of 120m3/hrat 6% dry solids (DS) content.
With the D:MAX, Qualitech can eliminate plastics, rag, grit and other solids passing through pumps, tanks and centrifuges which can reduce capacity and adversely impact efficiency due to their wear on downstream processes. By removing these highly abrasive materials the D:MAX minimises avoidable and costly downtime for maintenance, while recovering capacity within the process where solids build-ups have occurred resulting in increased operational efficiency.
CDE Business Development Manager Fergal Campbell says the introduction of the D:MAX to Qualitech’ s fleet will be a welcomed addition to the region.
“Qualitech has developed an impressive network in its 10- year history, providing coverage throughout the north and south of England. With the addition of the D:MAX to its fleet, the business will be equipped to further expand its contracting services to a range of industries. The solution will play an important role in advancing the circular economy in
the region by recovering dewatered grit, with opportunities for applications in construction, and allowing retained
sludges to be recovered for energy generation
that will produce high quality cake free from solids contamination for agricultural uses”
A key advantage of the D:MAX is that it has the potential to divert high tonnages from waste for landfill and can recover significant volumes of recycled grit and aggregates suitable for a variety of applications.
This material represents an unknown proportion of the volume of sludge that could potentially be removed and transported offsite at significant cost. By utilising the D:MAX only the solids contamination is removed, resulting in considerable reductions in disposal costs, reducing carbon footprint and minimising environmental impact.
In addition to recovering materials for future use, screened organics can be used in electricity and energy generation while screened sludge can be used for composting and agriculture.
Qualitech provides bespoke waste management solutions to a wide range of clients in the public and private sectors, including sludge dewatering, tanker services, chemical cleaning, environmental waste management and roll-on roll- off skip hire.
It will officially unveil its new D:MAX at RWM21 where the solution will be on display at stand 5-U220. CDE will be participating in the neighbouring Contamination & Geotech Expo at stand 4-F32.
Taking place at the NEC Birmingham from 22-23 September 2021, RWM21 is the UK's largest recycling, resource and waste management event. It coincides with Contamination & Geotech Expo, the UK's leading exhibition for contamination, geotechnical and environmental professionals, which also
takes place at the arena across the two days.
