The design capacity of the Bad Kissingen sewage plant is 60,000 PE (population equivalent). The plant is located in the immediate vicinity of the river Franconian Saale. Bad Kissingen is a famous spa town with valuable mineral springs. The protection of these mineral springs is a great challenge for the sewage plant especially when the river floods.
The problem with sewage treatment is that all important machine elements like roller- and sliding bearings, chains and spindles are constantly exposed to wastewater which carries dirt, phosphate or other chemicals. Despite these challenging conditions, trouble-free plant operation needs to be guaranteed day and night in order to avoid downtimes and their consequences.
For many years the Bad Kissingen sewage plant has been using perma lubrication systems, e.g. for aeration tanks, pumps, roller-bearings, rake screens, organic press scrapers or sedimentation tank scrapers.
In the outdoor area of the sewage treatment plant, the temperature independent perma STAR VARIO is used. Inside, the perma FLEX is used since this system is available in different sizes which can be adjusted to meet the lubricant requirements of different equipment parts. All lubrication systems are self-sufficient and are filled with biodegradable lubricants for environmental protection. perma lubrication systems increase equipment availability and reduce the workload for maintenance teams.
