1. Installation context

In 2021, MITA Water Technologies worked with Acquedotto Pugliese to implement a filtration system at the Barletta sewage treatment plant. The project was commissioned by a contractor after the contract was awarded.

2. Proposed solution

The solution proposed by MITA Water Technologies involved the supply of 6 pile cloth filters model MSF 12/60 PEC, complete with fiberglass covers with electric opening. These filters were designed to be housed in concrete tank after the pre-treatment systems, primary and secondary treatments of the treatment plant.

3. Results and key success factors

Thanks to the implementation of MITA Water Technologies’ pile cloth filters, the Barletta sewage treatment plant achieved results required by specifications. The concentration of total suspended solids (TSS) in the filter discharge was kept below 10 mg/l, meeting the performance expected by the customer. In addition, the plant can handle an average equalized flow rate of 863 m3/h, with a maximum flow rate of 2,158 m3/h.

Electricity consumption of about 11 kWhour/d under average conditions was confirmed. MITA Water Technologies offered comprehensive support during all phases of the project and implementation, including assistance at the end of installation, testing, and start-up of the plant. Expert advice contributed to the success of the project.

Some MITA projects

Pile Cloth Filters for the Merone WWTP

The tertiary filtration of the Merone wastewater treatment plant bears the signature of MITA Water Technologies: six disc filters with fleece cloth were adopted for the final treatment of the water reaching the upper Lambro River. This is part of a larger project to rehabilitate the purification plant. The chosen solution is extremely flexible and also makes it easy to deal with sludge lifting phenomena, typically seasonal or resulting from periodic increases in effluent flow rates.
