STEPSCREEN® Fine Bar Screen STEPSCREEN® Fine Bar Screen

Huber Technology, through its subsidiary Huber-Hydropress, is the inventor of the STEPSCREEN® concept. This design was unveiled in the early 1980’s to much acclaim and was readily adopted into the designs of well over 3,000 facilities worldwide since the STEPSCREEN® introduction.

RoS3Q Inclined Screwpress RoS3Q Inclined Screwpress

The incredible Huber Technology RoS3Q Inclined Screwpress for dewatering municipal sludge is providing impressive results in cake solids, polymer consumption, and capture rates. With its slow rotating auger the RoS3Q Inclined Screwpress can handle the toughest of sludge with ease.

The RoS3Q Inclined Screwpress can quietly run unattended by taking advantage of the fully automatic operation leaving plant personnel to be freed up to attend to other duties. By using only a fraction of the horsepower of other technologies, intermittent wash cycles, and frugal polymer dosing the RoS3Q Inclined Screwpress provides low cost of ownership.

SRT Solar Active Dryer SRT Solar Active Dryer

The basic principle of the HUBER SRT system is drying of sludge in a solar greenhouse using the available solar radiation. A special sludge turning system performs both spreading and turning of the sludge as well as its transport from one side to the other.

SP4 Strainpress – Inline Sludge Screen SP4 Strainpress – Inline Sludge Screen

The STRAINPRESS® is a horizontal pipe-shaped coarse material separator which consists of inlet and driving zone, screening and press zone and finally a discharge section with a conical pressure regulating device. The coarse material is separated continuously under pressure and periodical cleaning of the screening zone by backwashing is not required.

RoS2S Disk Thickener RoS2S Disk Thickener

Huber Technology provides an innovative solution for sludge thickening with its Ro2S Disk Thickener. The RoS2S Disk Thickener’s compact design allows it to fit in even the tightest spaces. 

Rotamat RPPS Centerfeed Drum Screen Rotamat RPPS Centerfeed Drum Screen

The Rotamat® family of products has been the backbone of Huber Technology’s explosive growth in wastewater equipment worldwide from the very beginning. The heart of the idea has been the ability to create a reliable fine screen that provides screening, conveyance, washing, and compacting all combined into one robust and simple machine. Each of the versions of the Rotamat® screens is a Huber original design.

BT Medium Temperature Belt Dryer BT Medium Temperature Belt Dryer

Drying of sewage sludge has to meet the conflicting demands between economic efficiency, energy supply, product requirements, disposal safety and utilization options. Drying of sewage sludge minimizes its mass, volume and disposal costs. The produced dry and disinfected biosolids are a valuable product that is well suited for its beneficial use. Different energy sources can be used to supply the heat required for drying. Huber uses a medium temperature design using temperatures up to 293 °F. This is because these temperatures are high enough to ensure quick drying and at the same time provide a cost-effective and eco-friendly utilization of waste heat. Internal recycling of dryer air via a condensator with integrated heat recovery reduces the heat demand of the dryer even more.

Rotamat RoK4 Vertical Screen Rotamat RoK4 Vertical Screen

The ROTAMAT® RoK 4 screen is the ideal solution for pumping stations, whether for new structures or refurbishment. Contrary to conventional screening systems which require manual cleaning, the screen surface of the ROTAMAT® RoK 4 screen is cleaned automatically.

The Huber Service Edge<sup>sm</sup> The Huber Service Edgesm

As you consider various technologies for your wastewater treatment application, the cost of the equipment as well as proper sizing and implementation are a critical component in the decision making process. However, sometimes how the machine is cared for after installation is not as closely scrutinized as it should be and maybe overlooked. We would like to take a moment to discuss features of what we proudly identify as the Huber Service Edgesm. What we mean by this is; from the moment you make an initial inquiry through the entire useable service life of the equipment, Huber Technology is committed to support you through the entire lifecycle of the equipment. This is backed up by five generations of tradition that demands that we take care of you, our customer. This is something that I observe as severely lacking and much in demand in our industry today.

EscaMax Perforated Plate Fine Screen EscaMax Perforated Plate Fine Screen

The EscaMax® is particularly well suited in situations where excellent separation efficiency is required in deep channels with high water levels. The sturdy EscaMax® screen is able to reliably cope with high amounts of gravel and grit. The two-dimensional screening elements prevent especially long fibres from passing through the screen and thus achieve the maximum separation efficiency.

Protecting Your Investment in Technology
When considering effective treatment technology performing at design standards, the headworks of a plant might be the most critical place in a WWTP. What happens there will greatly influence the downstream process.
