When excavating tunnels, tunnel boring machines are required that can operate in a wide spectrum of different soils. When using tunnel boring machines with mud conveyance, a conscientious design of the slurry treatment system is the basis for the technically, economically and ecologically successful realization of tunnel construction with differing challenges.
The task of the slurry treatment is to separate the slurry from solid components such as gravel, sand, clay and loam and to subsequently return this prepared slurry with the required rheological properties to the conveying circuit. Optimal separation and dewatering technology minimizes disposal costs, thus increasing profitability while reducing environmental impact.
For the development and production of turnkey solutions for the treatment of concrete slurries, our process engineers can rely on a wealth of experience and data from over 35 years.
