“All the evidence from the first sixteen weeks of operation is that yet another area of significant cost and interruption to plant operation has been successfully dealt with by the S:MAX. We are now sending 50% less waste to landfill than was previously the case. We are also recovering a range of materials from the waste and converting them into commercial products which have uses in a variety of applications.”

“The Sludge Reception Centre is such a strategic part of operations in the Fife & Tayside area. The screen is an extremely critical piece of kit and we mitigate downtime by the use of the available PMI. We also hold a full set of critical spares. This means there is no lead time for replacing any parts.”

“The benefit of the D:MAX is the classification; to be able to remove the rag and grit from the stream allows us to separate our flows. With the D:MAX operational now, it has improved our throughput. Originally, when we were pumping straight to the balance tank, we were only able to process 1 truckload per day, now with the D:MAX we can fill 3-4 truckloads per day.”
Production Supervisor, Conhur
"The MSU:10 solution has helped us because the tanker now doesn't have to spend time travelling back and forth to Aberdeen to dispose off the sewage. We've saved money with the running costs of the tanker and within 6 months, the machine has paid for itself."
