UK -- Yorkshire Water, the main subsidiary company providing water and sewerage services in the Yorkshire region, has invested in the new MSU:10G portable screen for solid liquid separation from CDEnviro, making it the first company to acquire the recently launched technology.
The company, which operates over 700 water and wastewater treatment works, maintains over 83,000km of water and sewerage pipework in the region.
It delivers clean water to over five million people and 130,000 businesses every day, totalling over 1.24 billion litres daily.
Kevin Mooney, Waste Water Sector Manager at CDEnviro, says, “The addition of our new MSU:10G to the CDEnviro product range represents our commitment to developing innovative technological solutions that respond to the challenges facing operators in the raw municipal waste water industry.
“We’re very pleased to have partnered with Yorkshire Water for the first time and to commission the very first MSU:10G for one of England’s largest and most forward-thinking suppliers of water and sewerage services.”
A first-of-its-kind investment by the company, the MSU:10G enables Yorkshire Water to streamline its operations by significantly enhancing the efficiency of its tank cleaning processes.
With the support of the CDEnviro solution, Yorkshire Water now has the technology to clean its aeration tanks on site.
Historically, sludge had to be transported between sites up to 30 miles apart to be processed, says Ian Baxby, Project Technical Specialist at Yorkshire Water.
“We now have the technology in place to clean the tanks on site. Previously, we had to process this material upwards of 30 miles away at another facility resulting in significant downtime, transport costs, and high waste disposal costs.”
A high frequency screen in the MSU:10G, Ian says, allows Yorkshire Water to remove rag and grit from primary wastewater, eliminating the need for the tanks to be drained.
“As we lacked the technological capability to screen off that material, we were investing significant time and resources into our fleet of tankers to transport the material between facilities. With the new MSU:10G, grit and rag can be efficiently screened before being transported off-site. It allows us to utilise and deploy our tankers more effectively across the network and to significantly reduce the costly transportation of waste material. As a portable solution, we also have the flexibility to deploy the unit to where it’s required anywhere across the network.”
He adds, “This has a number of major benefits. Most importantly, it maximises the efficiency of our operations as we’re extracting problematic material that could disrupt our downstream processes and treatment works.”
CDEnviro waste recovery and recycling systems are used in a variety of industries, including wastewater treatment works, sewage treatment works, demolition contractors, and contractors to the water and wastewater industry to maximise efficiencies, minimise costs, and to improve sustainable practice.
