This brochure provides an overview of Salsnes Filter and our rotating belt filter technology, including how it works, applications, product features and cost & environmental benefits.
Our Product Overview brochure provides details about our entire line of product offerings. It includes information on systems for municipal and industrial applications as well as our offerings for demonstration and lab testing.
We have installed over 900 filters around the world, many of which are in municipal wastewater treatment plants. In this brochure, we feature a selection of our municipal installations where Salsnes Filter systems have helped to increase treatment capacity, recover resources from primary sludge, meet regulatory requirements and more.
Our customers use the Salsnes Filter system for a host of industrial applications such as
tanneries, cruise ships, aquaculture, biofuel production, pulp & paper and food & beverage. In this brochure, we highlight a selection of our industrial applications where Salsnes Filter systems have helped customers meet discharge requirements, save costs and reduce loading on downstream equipment.
The Salsnes Filter system can be installed to perform solids separation for land based fish farms, closed cages, net cleaning stations, fish processing plants, delouse rafts and well boats. This brochure covers the capabilities of the system, product features, benefits and customer examples.
Daphne Utilities Water Reclamation Facility, Alabama, USA
With significant TSS and BOD reductions from their Salsnes Filter system, Daphne Utilities has restored previously lost plant capacity. More than that, loading reductions have cut back aerator maintenance and lowered energy consumption of blowers.
Saulekilen Wastewater Treatment Plant, Arendal, Norway
The Saulekilen Wastewater Treatment Plant, located in Arendal, Norway upgraded their facility with six SFK600 Salsnes Filters. Thickened and dewatered primary sludge from the system is sent to anaerobic digesters to produce biogas, which is then used to generate electricity that runs the Plant. With its compact footprint, the Salsnes Filter system fit inside existing buildings to help reduce overall investment costs by NOK 17 million (~ $2 million USD).
Beemster Wastewater Treatment Plant, Middenbeemster, Netherlands
For the Netherlands, resource recovery is a main priority and the Beemster WWTP, near Amsterdam, is a great example of this. They use eight SFK600 Salsnes Filters to separate fine cellulose fibers from toilet paper in the wastewater. Cellulose fibers are collected and further processed into a base material used in the production of bioplastics.
Geiranger Wastewater Treatment Plant, Stranda, Norway
On a typical day, the Geiranger WWTP treats the wastewater for 300 permanent town residents. However, in the summer months, the town becomes the second largest cruise ship port in Norway and treatment capacity at the Plant must increase to account for an influx of over 7000 tourists per day. The Salsnes Filter system is designed in such a way that it can handle these significant variations in incoming flow.
Carbonera Water Resource Recovery Facility, Carbonera, Italy
The Salsnes Filter system installed at the Carbonera Water Resource Recovery Facility in Treviso, Italy, produces a primary sludge that helps the facility recover PHA, a raw material that can be commercially reused in the production of bioplastics. It is part of a SMART-Plant demonstration system, an initiative funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme.
