Sludge handling cranes

Full automation for sludge handling

In a sludge station, semi-fluid sludge is unloaded by trucks into storage bunkers. In the bunker, the sludge handling crane transfers the sludge into a storage area. From the storage area, the crane feeds the sludge to a process line. The material is very sticky, which is taken into consideration in the dimensioning of crane structures and machineries.

One continuously-operated, fully-automated crane is used in this application and the crane is controlled through a monitor from the central control room.
