Düren, Germany — Sonneberg Waterworks, Germany, operate four sewage treatment plants for around 50,000 residents. The Sonneberg-Heubisch sewage treatment plant has been using a Type 1003 filter belt with integrated wear indicator from GKD Gebr. Kufferrath AG (GKD) to dewater sewage sludge since January 2016. Beside efficient dewatering and a reliable PAD seam, the key factor that spoke in favor of the belt was its increased planning reliability for belt changing intervals.
