The WendeWolf® machine is installed inside a drying hall or greenhouse and runs on two dwarf walls that are 11.3 m apart and 850 mm high, over 124 m in length (equivalent hall length is 130m). The greenhouse serves to prevent rain from re-wetting the sludge, and capture solar radiation to evaporate the moisture from the sludge.
Standard Features of WendeWolf® system
WendeWolf® machine i.e. tiller and turner assembly
Control Hardware and Software, including Operation Switchboard and Machine Switchboard
Festoon system that includes power cable
Ventilation fans; quantity depends on hall length
Four (4) safety lanyards with emergency stop pull switches; two (2) on the WendeWolf® machine and one (1) at each entry to the drying hall
One (1) set of Meteorology Instruments installed inside each drying hall
Position Labels installed along the length of the drying hall
Additional Features & Functions
Control system has pre-set programmes to operate the process. These pre-set programmes are operator adjustable, and by combining these into a sequence, all plant operation is automated.
Loading – used to import and flatten input piles of sludge into the hall, and to spread it across the width of the hall, over a selected length in the hall.
Turning – used to turn over the sludge for a selected sludge bed depth, over a selected length in the hall. Turning can occur in both directions; there is no preferred direction.
Displacing – used to move the sludge for a selected sludge bed depth, over a selected length in the hall. Displacing can occur in both directions.
Accumulating – used to accumulate or stockpile dried granulate product
Clearing (optional) – used to remove dried granulate product from the end of hall, where an automated out-loading system is available
Can operate in Batch mode or Continuous mode without changing the programming.
Turns over and conveys the sludge homogeneously in one single process along the full width and length of the hall.
Can handle dewatered cake input piles up to 110 cm high.
Operates (Turning and Displacing) a sludge bed depth up to 40 cm.
Can stockpile the dried granulate product up to 80 cm high.
Does not touch the floor, and therefore does not damage the floor. At start-up the WendeWolf® machine’s on-board sensors are used to “map” the floor surface. This process determines the minimum operating height from the floor across the width and length of the hall.
Can be used to “back-mix” dried granulate with wet sludge (as an option if required).
Uses robust, low wear, easy to maintain, and exchangeable tilling tools.
