Clean water is becoming an increasingly valuable raw material, which is why the importance of municipal waste water treatment continues to grow. In order to keep soil and water clean, sludges resulting from drinking water and waste water treatment must be separated as efficiently as possible. For the dewatering and thickening of sewage sludge, industrial centrifuges are now considered the state of the art. They are cost-effective, energy-saving and efficient.

Flottweg has over 50 years of experience in dewatering and thickening of sewage sludge. We are aware of the special requirements of sewage treatment plants and the water industry. Neo Foodtech Co. as exclusive office for Flottweg in Viet Nam, visit web site at: www. neofoodtech.com
