ENSURING THE RIGHT MIX ✔️

The Rivierenland Water Authority in the Netherlands is aiming to become energy neutral by 2030 – #Sulzer technology is helping to realize this goal ?

Its "Energy Factory West" water treatment plant is using a revolutionary new bio-power scheme - producing biogas from sludge during wastewater treatment.

The plant is one of the first facilities to use Ephyra® technology, an innovative approach to #sludgedigestion that offers greater capacity in a smaller space.

? In order to work effectively, the Ephyra® system relies on the efficient #mixing of the material in the tanks. Sulzer’s wastewater treatment specialists developed a customized and highly specialized solution for the mixing process, helping the plant to increase biogas production by 20-30%. The gas then supplies a power generation unit ?

SULZER ENABLING PRODUCTION OF CARBON-NEUTRAL ALTERNATIVE TO COAL ?

The innovative EU-funded Arbaflame project is aiming to produce 70’000 tonnes of biomass-based combustibles per year to enable clean power generation.

The #biomass pellets are made of wood and can be used as a 100% sustainable alternative to coal in power plants to produce carbon-neutral power. ?

Sulzer Chemtech's separation equipment will play a key role in Arbaflame's pellet production process by minimizing energy usage while maximizing the recovery of highly useful chemicals generated as by-products to further support the #CircularEconomy. ♻️

"This innovative project shows how our processing technologies can contribute to creating a greener economy. We look forward to providing more companies with the tools to maximize the sustainability of their operations in the future", says Torsten Wintergerste, Division President at Sulzer Chemtech.

SCI-FI ENGINEERING ?

A great example of how our highly skilled services teams are utilizing multiple Sulzer modalities for repairs, retrofits and rerates to help solve our customer’s problems – even outside of Sulzer equipment ⤵️

This 6x11 / 9 Stage CB Bundle experienced severe damage to the #DiffuserBlades as they were bent and broken at multiple stages.

Our engineering team conducted a thorough investigation by running a Computational Fluid Dynamics Analysis comparing the existing with the newly proposed design. The analysis led to the proposed design change being adapted as well as part materials being exchanged.

Applying our scanning technology, we were able to:

? Scan different parts,

?️ 3D-print molds,

⚙️ Pour castings,

? Machine and CNC the diffuser blades all in-house!

Working hand-in-hand with the customer every step of the way led to a successful outcome. Well done, team! ?

IT'S A PUMP PORTRAIT ?

This giant cooling water #pump being assembled in our Leeds factory was definitely worthy of a close up!

The pump is a spare for its predecessors which were first ordered in 1998 for two central utility facilities in Malaysia ✅

The Malaysian power plants were built to supply electricity, steam and water to the various industries and refineries within their vicinity ??️?

The SM 602-800 pumps were first put into service in 1999 and are used to supply #coolingwater across the sites ?

In addition to the cooling water pumps, Sulzer also supplied the boiler feed pumps, firewater pumps and auxiliary pumps at both sites ➡️ a total of 67 pump sets, originally supplied by #SulzerPumps UK and Germany ?

OUR MANY WAYS OF SAVING ✅

At an Austrian wastewater plant, Sulzer #turbocompressors are quietly saving 175'000 Euro per year while reducing annual #carbon emissions by more than 580 tonnes ?

Along with around 40’000 Euro per year in maintenance costs ?, the original single stage centrifugal blowers were so noisy that no-one could go near them without strong hearing protection ?

With the upgrade to #Sulzer HST™ turbocompressor technology, the Linz-Asten treatment plant was able to cut maintenance costs, #energyconsumption and noise!
