Intaqua Septrifuge - solid / liquid separation realized in a decentralized adaptation

One of the central and unsatisfactorily solved problems in wastewater technology were methods and devices for separating solids from water being available on the market.
The fibers of toilet paper are the biggest problem. These fibers clog screens, filters, and membranes of all pore sizes in a short time. In screens and membranes (which filter the fibers out) the problem was solved by backwashing: So you add water, which was deprived of the fibers before, again to the fibers. Unsatisfactory.

A satisfactory and effective solution represent hydrocyclones. This hurl the slightly heavier fibers under high acceleration out of the water to a separator, from which they are then separated to over 99% in almost semi-solid form. However, the investment costs of hydrocyclones are very high, and the availability of small modules is extremely inadequate. The biggest problem is the energy consumption of hydrocyclones. Large water masses have to be accelerated to achieve the satisfactory separation result.

Therefore, the Intaqua AG has invented a completely new separation method, researched and developed with the TUHH. This machine separates up to 99.7% of the fibers semi-solid at significantly lower investment and operating costs.

This device can be inspected under running conditions in the pilot plant at Hamburg Hbf.

The device was designed so that the separation means can be adapted to each specific requirements of different waste waters. Correspondingly diverse are the applications of the Septrifuge, so you actually have to speak here of a completely separate product for the following industries:

  • Paper industry
  • Textile Care
  • Wool scouring
  • Dyers
  • Food industry
  • And many more.

The Septrifuge is also crucial for all miniaturization of LooLoop process (water washing machine).

Defects are opportunities. This is our potential.
