Schwing Stetter India was a part of IFAT Expo 2018 – trade fair for water, sewage, refuse and recycling. With the launch of its range of sludge pumps and muck pumps back in IFAT 2015, the company has entered into the industrial equipment segment.
Sludge pumps are for the mineral, petrochemical, food processing and thermal power industries in India where drainage water can be filtered into a sludge that is converted to bio organisers – fit for direct consumption. The pumps provide solutions for transport and storage of sludge’s as well as the materials with high solid content.
The global water and wastewater treatment market is to reach $ 674.72 billion by 2025, driven by the rising demand for freshwater for drinking, industrialisation and agriculture. Treated water is suitable for various end-uses such as river flow maintenance, drinking, the supply of industrial water and irrigation.
Water and wastewater treatment processes such as softening, deodorisation and purification make the water more useful and potable. Asia Pacific was the largest market accounting for 43.9 per cent of the revenue share in 2016. It is anticipated to gain momentum over the forecast period on account of the growing demand for filtered water for various applications.
