Sep­a­ra­tor S655 used for healing purposes

Bauer tech­nol­o­gy in the service of healing power. The western Styrian Moorbad Schwan­berg uses a sep­a­ra­tor and a long shaft pump for the treat­ment and reuse of the healing peat.

 The for­ma­tion of the high peat bog in Garanas goes back to the Neolith­ic period, 4,000 BC. The rec­og­nized healing peat, which is used in the Moorbad Schwan­berg against skin and other dis­eases, is formed at a height of 1,300 meters.

How does the peat get into the bathtub?

After mining, the dark raw peat is stored exter­nal­ly and deliv­ered to the Moorbad in con­tain­ers. The hyper­boloid cutting mech­a­nism of the long shaft sub­mersible pump shreds the mate­r­i­al, which is then mixed with water, homog­e­nized and heated. The Magnum LE 11 then trans­ports the peat, which is reg­u­lar­ly checked for its phys­i­cal and chem­i­cal para­me­ters, into the tub. After the healing treat­ment, the sep­a­ra­tor S655 moves into action: the liquid part ends up in the sewage system, the solid part is returned to the mining site. There the fibre can enrich again with curing ele­ments and after a few decades it should be usable again as a healing treatment.

Peat and blueberries

Another part of the solid phase is processed into potting soil and used for example for blue­ber­ry plants that prefer an acidic envi­ron­ment. The pH value of 4.3 is also a special chal­lenge for machines that come into contact with the aggres­sive medium. The separator’s auger and screen are made of stain­less steel and are there­fore ideally pre­pared for the peat. For even more comfort, the in-house tech­ni­cians of Moor Bath Schwan­berg have installed a washing system in the sep­a­ra­tor. The screen is auto­mat­i­cal­ly washed every day. The sep­a­ra­tor has been running like clock­work for more than ten years now!
