Scum Baffle For Mcgm
Problem – M/S. Gammon India Ltd, built Asia's Largest Sewerage & Waste Water Treatment Facility situated at Bandra-Kurla Complex, Mumbai and this specific project was under the adjudication due to the allocation of Floating Scum Baffle in grit chamber. The aim of the application of Floating Scum Baffle was to check the entrance of various floating and organic materials from the sewage pumping station and to transmit the pollution free water to the sea for sustaining the level of dissolve oxygen specified by Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB). This dissolve oxygen has an essential role in safeguarding the living organism and controlling the spreading of unpleasant smell. Due to the unsettled issue of Material or Construction (MOC), it had become quite impossible for M/s. Gammon India Ltd., M/s. Binnie & Partners India Ltd. (Consultant) and MCGM (Client) to find a suitable solution of this problem.
Solution – After a series of official meetings, M/s. Gammon chose ARHAM as the only company that could provide necessary solution to their problem.
ARHAM provided following solutions –
- As their first solution, the ARHAM fabricated the scum baffle with wooden structure to prevent the flow of dirt. This solution was rejected by the Consultant as grit chamber could not bear water pressure due to its shape.
- Their second solution was to design the scum baffle with HDPE material and this solution too was discarded by MGCM on the ground of possible damage of HDPE material due to the utilization of crane.
- Finally, it was decided to fabricate this scum baffle by using composite of steel and FRP that are perfect solution of above mentioned problems. Based on the principle of Archimedes, the half portion of this baffle was submerged in water.
- The ARHAM filled rectangular steel sections with PUF to protect these from water. The application of FRP material on these steel sections was done to safeguard these from corrosion. This baffle was directed by heavy duty stainless steel pipes and accessories with the vertical movement of around 1 meter.
