Saxlund International Awarded Sludge Cake Truck Reception Bunker at Esholt STW

Saxlund International have recently been awarded the contract to design, install and commission a new Truck Reception facility in Esholt, West Yorkshire by Morgan-Est Contractors.

This is the latest in a line of Truck Reception facilities that Saxlund have been awarded over the years, and demonstrates the engineering competence as well as the ability to be cost effective in a competitive market.

Some reasons for choosing a Saxlund Truck Reception facility include the excellent odour control with its hydraulically operated lid, which is being demanded more and more by local planning regulations and Saxlund Internationals extensive background in engineering excellence.

The facility is designed to allow tipping trucks to empty into a rectangular bunker fitted with a Saxlund Push Floor. The Saxlund Push Floor reciprocates across the floor of the bunker promoting “first in – first out” bulk material flow, dispensing the sludge cake into two Saxlund Screw Conveyors.

The Saxlund Screw Conveyors then meter this material into two Seepex progressive cavity pumps, for transfer onto for further processing.

This Truck Reception Bunker is part of the ever growing range of products that Saxlund International provides for the Water Treatment Industry, including Truck Loading Facilities, Sludge Cake Silos, Screw Conveyors, Chain Conveyors and process feed equipment.

For decades, Saxlund International has been a major player in the development of flat bottom silo and bunker discharge technology and conveyor systems for difficult bulk solid materials. The company's practical experience in handling major projects stems from the fact that to date it has constructed more than 3500 plants worldwide, all of which set new standards in terms of their technical performance and reliability. Indeed, a reputation has been established during this period for supplying solid and reliable equipment that performs as designed.
