The revolutionary S:MAX G, launched in 2016, changed the convention of how the industry screened and removed rag and grit. We came up with a new way of solving an existing problem through the use of high frequency screening which can handle high volume flows with relatively high suspended solids.
Up until the launch of the S:MAX G, the industry had been using the same technology in the same way. We first introduced the technology to the recycling waste water market and, due to demand, later diversified into Anaerobic Digestion (AD). The latest version installed at a customer site in August 2016 was to optimise their Anaerobic Digestion processes for increased operating efficiency by removing grit and sedimentation in the digestion tank. By removing the grit advanced the process by reducing wear in the machines and eliminating the need for downtime because of sedimentation, ultimately saving costs in the AD process.
These technological improvements are what prompted industry experts to highly commend the S:MAX G, the ‘Best Process Optimisation’ at the AD & Biogas Industry Awards 2017. As well as this we were internally recognised by Severn Trent for ‘revolutionary sludge screening.’
