Equipment: Hydrodynamic Screws
Andritz Atro is a leading industry supplier of screw pumps for waste water and water applications. For 40 years, the company has been supplying solutions within the industry.
But in 2000, in an effort to economically exploit the natural energy potential of rivers, Andritz Atro developed the hydrodynamic screw. This top-of-the-line product provides quality service to industrial, municipal and private customers that utilize smaller bodies of water that have a head flow of up to 10 m. Despite the size of the pond or lake, hydrodynamic screws turn the water flow into a renewable source of energy with incredible value. Even the smallest of hydrodynamic facilities can create maximum potential for pulling energy from the naturally flowing waters. The other advantage is to the water downstream. The hydrodynamic screw, and its process, enriches the water with oxygen which can improve the overall quality of water, is fish friendly and easily installed to the natural environment.
Andritz Atro is headquartered in Nuremberg, Germany and is a part of Group ANDRITZ, an international technology corporation in Graz, Austria. For more information on the hydrodynamic screw, visit Andritz Atro.
