The Pemberton STP recently underwent an upgrade to increase its processing capacity and to produce higher grade quality effluent for reuse and environmental discharge.
Hydroflux HUBER supplied a packaged screening and grit removal facility, which not only removes screenings and grit from sewage but also protects the mechanical items in the downstream process such as pumps, mixers and aerators.
“There are a number of reasons for the system’s popularity,”, says John Carroll, Director of Hydroflux HUBER Pty Ltd.
“These include achieving 90% or more grit removal; the system’s ability to be installed either fully assembled in an above-ground stainless steel tank or supplied in components for simple below-ground installation in concrete channels; and because the are 12 sizes in the range, with flows starting at 10 L/s through to 200 L/s in a single unit.
“At Pemberton, the installation is a pre-packaged screening and grit removal facility, built in a single stainless steel tank. This meant that only minor assembly was required onsite and did away with the need to construct a concrete structure, thereby saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in construction costs.”
In addition to the HUBER Ro5 system at Pemberton being a prefabricated inlet works, it includes a bypass channel for emergency overflow situations. The inlet screen uses perforations for high screenings capture and all screenings removed are washed and compacted prior to discharge into the skips.
A number of screen configurations are possible, with apertures ranging from 1mm to 6mm perforations. Other options include grit trap aeration and grease removal.
