Passavant® Mammutrotor®

Ochsenfurt, Germany (Südzucker Plant)

Situation

The wastewater treatment plant of the sugar refinery in Ochsenfurt has had three floating Mammutrotors® from the year 1973, which should be replaced due to heavy wear. After the refurbishment of the first aeration pond at the beginning of 2014, the second aeriation pond was equipped with new Mammutrotors®.

Two floating Mammutrotors® have been customized and installed for the project in order to refurbish one of the aeration ponds. The second aeration section was replaced with two floating Mammutrotors® with the length of 6 m instead of 7.5 m.

Solution

Since comissioning, the Mammutrotor have been running completely satisfying without significant problems.
The technical support provided by the Passavant-Geiger complies with the agreements therefore Südzucker could certify the Passavant-Geiger the required expertise, efficiency and reliability based to the aforementioned aeration ponds.
