How do Salher water pretreatment systems protect your WWTP?

Feb 13, 2024

Screening systems, grit chambers and grease chambers are pretreatments that protect the electromechanical equipment of the water treatment lines. Salher designs and manufactures these types of solutions to meet the needs of each project.

Preventing malfunctions in the operation of water treatment plants, ensuring the efficiency of subsequent stages, guaranteeing the final quality of the water, extending the useful life cycle of the WWTP. These are some of the reasons why Salher invests significant resources in developing standard pretreatment solutions. In addition, its technical team can supply other sizes and configurations, accessories and replacement parts for them on request.

Salher always recommends incorporating its pretreatment systems in all water treatment lines, whether for drinking water treatment, purification, hydrocarbon separation or reuse. With the aim of conditioning wastewater and reducing problems in its subsequent treatment, this equipment carries out the process of separating materials of different sizes from the effluent.

The decision to choose one pretreatment or another will depend, among other factors, on the characteristics of the wastewater, the available budget for the installation of the WWTP and the space in which the plant is going to be installed.

One of Salher’s best-sellers is the Taurus rotary screen, the new equipment developed by optimising the design of its old rotary screen for a higher performance. Salher’s development department combines experience, study of materials and structures and innovation to ensure that each new piece of equipment improves the performance of the old, while maintaining the quality of the water treatment brand.

The incorporation of any of the Salher pretreatments will ensure that the water is free of solid matter that could damage the installation or the equipment that will be used throughout the purification process. By protecting the electromechanical equipment, economic savings are guaranteed and wastewater is not discharged into the environment.
