SUEZ requested to AX SYSTEM to design, manufacture and install a cleaning system for the filter press of the Dunkerque wastewater treatment plant. The filter press in place is a filter manufactured by FAURE.
The challenge was to propose a 100% automated cleaning robot system, integrating perfectly into the existing environment.
AX SYSTEM has designed a cleaning frame sliding along the filter press and moving the frames one after the other so as to slide the cleaning head which sprays water under high pressure. A robot moves the frame one after the other to slide an automated cleaning head. The cleaning head sprays water at high pressure, thus cleaning the fabrics perfectly. The frequency and intensity of the cleaning is adjusted according to the degree of soiling. A sensor assembly ensures proper operation.
