Disintegration technology for biogas and sewage treatment plants
Electrokinetic or mechanical disintegration methods for optimized processes
Efficient disintegration technology reduces the costs of sewage treatment and biogas plants while improving results. By using Vogelsang technology to digest sludge or substrate, the gas yields of sewage treatment and biogas plants can be optimized. This is complemented by reduced power consumption of mixers, pumps, decanters and other components. In the waste water sector, the disintegration of sewage sludge also leads to less sludge accumulation and a lesser need for flocculants (polymers) when dewatering the sludge.
Disintegration and its benefits
By disintegrating the medium, its particles are attacked and broken into individual fragments, defibered and crushed to create a larger surface area. This increases the scope for bacteria and microorganisms to attack as they can get to the nutrients easier and better. When applied during the production of gas at biogas plants or sewage treatment plants, this method increases gas and electricity yields and organic matter in sludge and organic suspensions is broken down better.
Treating solid matter using mechanical disintegration
Mechanical disintegration of substrates increases the surface area of the solid matter used by reducing the size of the particles, and at the same time defibering and crushing the solid matter. This makes it easier for the bacteria to get to the nutrients and speeds up the chemical reaction, which increases gas yields.
The positive side effects of mechanical substrate disintegration using the DisRuptor are countless. Floating layers in the biogas plant are avoided and the viscosity of the organic suspension reduced. This means that less power is required and therefore consumed by the mixers and pumps. By opting for Vogelsang's disintegration technology, customers can optimize their biogas plants to achieve greater yields and lower energy consumption.
