City of Orlando, FL, Conserv II WWTP Utilizes Schwing Bioset KSP 25 Piston Pumps in Class AA Biosolids Process
Written by Tom Welch, December 14, 2016
The City of Orlando, FL, Conserv II WWTP became aware of the Schwing Bioset process and immediately saw the potential it had to meet all of their requirements for both short and long-term implementation. In addition, Schwing Bioset could offer conversion of the stabilized Biosolids to a licensed commercial fertilizer product. The City staff visited current Bioset operations in Florida and were impressed with what they saw and with the simplicity of the process. The City conducted an in-house feasibility study that considered Bioset and other technologies and concluded that Bioset was the preferred treatment process.
The current dewatering facility has four belt filter presses that discharge onto two belt conveyors that converge onto one common belt conveyor that takes the dewatered Biosolids to truck loading. The decision was made to move away from the common belt conveyor to make the process more robust. A KSP 25 piston pump was added at the end of each belt conveyor. The two pumps are utilized to transfer the dewatered cake to the Bioset (Class A alkaline process). The Bioset process also utilizes a third KSP 25 pump as the heart and soul of the system to blend the chemicals needed for the Class A process and pumps the end product into a plug flow reactor and ultimately out to two truck loading areas. These pumps are programmed to work together to make sure that a consistent flow of Biosolids can be treated to Class A status through the reactor.
