With its full-automation capability, Huber Technology's SRT Solar Active Dryer increases productivity.

Because the Huber SRT Solar Active Dryer is a linear feed design, wastewater plants can send dewatered sludge directly to the dryer as it is created. The traveling bridge mixer incrementally distributes and moves the sludge along the length of the solar dryer, ensuring a properly mixed and uniformly dried product. With full automation capability, operator time within the drying structure can be virtually eliminated.

The SRT Solar Active Dryer features:

  • Unique combination of sludge turning and transport.
  • Continuous drying process.
  • Even distribution of the sludge feed.
  • Odorless due to complete restacking of the sludge.

The basic principle of the Huber SRT system is drying of sewage sludge in a glasshouse using the incident solar radiation. A special sludge turning system — Huber's Sludge Turner Solstice — performs both spreading and turning of the sludge as well as its transport from one side to the other.

The sludge feeding options can be adjusted to suit customer-specific requirements. The dewatered sludge can be fed into the greenhouse either manually, i.e. with a wheel loader, or fully automatically by a distribution screw that uses the evaporation area optimally.

The dried sludge is discharged either into a trough, or by means of a belt conveyor directly into a container. Because the sludge is fed continuously, units with a low throughput can be used for sludge dewatering.
