Various elements of inlet works/headworks and solids/liquid separation, intake, conveyance and steering of water flows by means of shut-off devices. It is crucial for the subsequent purification and recycling processes, that solids are efficiently separated from industrial or municipal wastewater. Therefore, Bilfinger Water Technologies provides machine solutions which can be ideally adapted to suit the respective requirements and conditions.

Our machines for the further processing of extracted (recyclable) materials present a sound overall concept for the first stage when employed in combination with our rakes and screens, conveying systems and shut-off devices.

The central task of the inlet works / headworks is the separation of coarse solids such as rocks, wood, foliage, sanitary products, toilet paper, etc. and also sand and grease. Reliable pre-treatment of the wastewater is crucial for all subsequent treatment processes. Blockages and obstructions are prevented in downstream biological and / or physical processes and the general strain on the plant is eased.

The optimal adjustment of screen gap widths and sieve hole diameters are of particular significance here. For a convincing “screening result” in municipal and industrial applications, these must be perfectly tuned to the respective medium, volume of flow and local installation conditions. Reliable conveying systems and shut-off devices ensure the intake / discharge and transport of water and substances.

Bilfinger Water Technologies can deliver individual components or develop complete solutions which are tailored to your specific needs.
