In India, there is a huge market for sustainable technologies in waste water treatment. On an average, we waste around 62,000 million litres of water on a daily basis. The Smartec sludge pump will help to reliably convert sewage sludge, organic, industrial and kitchen waste into water that can be used for municipal purposes. This water can be used to water – parks, golf courses etc. and also be used for fountains.
Our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi has been emphasizing on cleaning India with the launch of the Swacch Bharat Campaign. With this objective in mind, Schwing Stetter India is entering into this new segment with the launch of the first ever high capacity, high volume “Sludge Pumps and Muck Pumps”. Schwing sludge pumps provide turnkey solutions for transport and storage of sludge as well as materials with high solid content.
The KSP range of sludge pumps can be used for the following:
- Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTP) – Where sewage sludge is mechanically dewatered.
- Waste Recycling – Recycling waste sludge, oil sludge, salt mud and radioactive waste
- Construction industry – Recycling Bentonite Clay mud Mortar tailings
- Mines, Refineries and Power Plants – Recycling red mud, gold slime, iron sludge, zinc sludge, metallic oxide sludge and Fly ash
- Chemical and Other industries – Recycling organic and inorganic materials, stabilize chemical waste, lime slurry, food-processing by-products and paint sludge.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Anand Sundaresan, Vice-Chairman & Managing Director, Schwing Stetter India said, “At Schwing Stetter, we focus on aligning our products with the need of our stakeholders being our customers and the Government. With our Prime Minister’s Swachh Bharat Programme, it is important to align our products with the need of the Government. We are sure our equipment will find huge applications in cleaning and disposal of sludge and waste in many industries. IFAT India expo 2016 has provided the right platform for the introduction and launch of these products to the Indian market.”
Mr. V.G. Sakthikumar, Managing Director, SCHWING Stetter Sales & Services Pvt. Ltd said, “We hope that the Smartec Sludge Pump will help us become water conserving like Singapore, where water is continuously recycled and even served as water. While India is still in a nascent stage, when it comes to recycling sewage water, our equipment will enable local Government to use the recycled water for municipal use like watering plants in parks, etc.
