The Sugar Creek WWTP, owned by the Sangamon County Water Reclamation District located in Springfield, IL, has two Schwing Bioset model FSP 1102 screw presses and our Class B alkaline stabilization process. The screw presses dewater the plant’s aerobically treated biosolids and the downstream equipment produces the alkaline stabilized Class B biosolids. These biosolids are then windrowed in the District’s storage shed and eventually land applied for beneficial use. Data recorded from a recent site visit on a single screw press in operation was impressive and can be seen below.
