Schwing Stetter India, one of the leading concreting equipment manufacturing companies in India, recently participated in the IFAT Expo 2019, India’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, refuse and recycling. As part of the exhibition, the company displayed its Smartec sludge pump for the first time. This is the fifth consecutive year; the company is participating in the expo.

Schwing Stetter marched their way into the industrial equipment segment with the launch of an exclusive range of sludge pumps and muck pumps back in IFAT 2015.

The global water & wastewater treatment market is to reach US$674.72 billion by 2025, driven by the rising demand for freshwater for drinking, industrialization and agriculture. Treated water is suitable for various end-uses such as river flow maintenance, drinking, the supply of industrial water and irrigation.

Water & wastewater treatment processes such as softening, deodorization and purification make the water more useful and potable. Asia Pacific was the largest market accounting for 43.9% 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.

Schwing Stetter’s range of sludge pumps is also highly useful to the mineral, petrochemical, food processing and thermal power industries. This product will be highly beneficial to our country, where drainage water can be filtered into a sludge that is converted to bio organizers – fit for direct consumption. With the Indian Government’s focus on the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, India’s most significant cleanliness campaign, Schwing Stetter India has launched its exclusive high capacity, high volume “Sludge Pumps and Muck Pumps”. Schwing sludge pumps provides turnkey solutions for transport and storage of sludge’s as well as the materials with high solid content.
