The mechanical sludge removal equipment is made in various sizes depending on the application. It can be fixed or in component form to go through an 18″ manhole. The tracks can be used to agitate the sludge and direct it to the pump section.
In the remote version, the pump can be mounted on the hydrodozer to transfer the sludge directly through a fish tail type suction adaptor. The remote controlled hydrodozer can also be operated as a suction dredger to remove sludge from pits, lagoons and online API separators, whilst the systems are still in service.
The pumps and hydrodozers are hydraulically driven which is a safe system for hazardous areas. The diesel driven power pack can be situated in a safe area powering the equipment.
