Contaminated sludge is delivered by tanker to a waste water plant which is then treated in the facility. The sludge is conveyed under pressure from the tanker into the plant. Due to the very low pressure, solids in the sludge persistently stick in the pipe line and cause it to block.
To chop these solids and prevent more blockages, the operator of the waste water treatment plant installed a Boerger Multicrusher. The Multicrusher is mounted on a hand cart and equipped with a small rock trap for extracting non-floating solids (such as metal parts) and is connected between the tanker and treatment plant.
Since the operator has been using the Boerger Multicrusher, there have been no more incidents due to pipe blockages when discharging from the tanker.
