Biosolids such as sewage sludge or biomass from renewable raw materials are broken down much more effectively when treated with ultrasound. The use of ultrasound allows biogenic sludge to be activated, which in turn offers considerable cost and energy savings at sewage treatment plants and biogas facilities.
To increase the amount of energy that can be extracted from biogas, industrial and municipal biogas facilities in Europe rely on proven ultrasonic systems from Weber Entec. Weber Entec concentrates on general control technology and plant manufacturing for ultrasound-specific applications in the field of environmental technology.
In developing "SmartDMS", the company cooperated with the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS) to create a process for sewage sludge disintegration that delivers excellent results from both an ecological and economic perspective.
The "BioPush" biogas catalyzer is a 100% in-house development of Weber Entec. This system uses its powerful planar transducers to generate a homogeneous cavitation field within the reactor, thereby ensuring that even challenging substrates such as the heavily dehydrated mixed sludge often processed by municipal sewage treatment facilities or agricultural fermentation plants can be treated at full power.
3 kW ultrasonic generator
The innovative plug-and-play device is fully digital and impresses not only through its maximum process stability and power output, but also its exemplary ease-of-use.
