From sewage, dewatered sludge, dried biosolids, cake, wastewater handling and other water treatment and sewage processing, Conveyors have been supporting water & sewage treatment, and reservoir sites for many years. But as we all face this ongoing, unprecedented period of COVID-19, they have an even more important part to play in protecting staff through social distancing, eliminating downtime, and increasing productivity.

Whilst many businesses are struggling to find ways to move and process what they need to within the regulations set out by the Government, modular conveyors can help industries like water treatment and reservoir management continue to provide a critical service, and at times perhaps respond to an increase in demand, by offering a solution that can fit around specific sites and logistics, reducing the need for staff contact, without compromising the speed or quality of the treatment processes.

Coveya, a Bristol based manufacturer and supplier of modular conveyor systems throughout the UK and worldwide, lead the way in supplying conveyors for hire and purchase to the water and reservoir industries and have many years’ experience of enabling customers to increase productivity.

As we all need to consider social distancing, conveyors provide an opportunity for employers to utilise efficient, portable, and robust conveyors across all forms of water treatment and maintenance ensuring staff stay apart and are protected. With the possibility of a reduction in staff and a real need to make sure water treatment services keep on going with sites being maintained properly, conveyors quickly and efficiently move what’s needed, to, from and across site, eliminating downtime by reducing the need for manual handling.

Coveya are specialists in delivering specialist conveyor solutions for reservoir maintenance and improvement projects, sometimes across complex sites, all of which support social distancing without compromising efficiency, speed or productivity and with a conveyors ready to support a range of applications, they respond to specific requirements with modular stock or bespoke conveyor solutions. So, from the removal or relocation of aggregate, spoil and sediment to enabling access and the movement of materials within limited access sites or even tunnels, conveyors will keep water treatment and reservoir improvement and development moving, both right now and well into the future.

Coveya just like many other businesses across the UK, has been looking at innovative ways to support customers and the wider business community, alongside its range of conveyor solutions. So, the team designed COV-Screen, a freestanding or countertop acrylic screen that mitigates the spread of COVID-19, protecting both staff and customers. You will find COV-Screen across the UK; on building and excavation sites to NHS distribution centres, hotels, reception areas and recycling plants and COV-Screen has an equally important part to play at UK water, sewage, and reservoir sites.

Over the next few months as we prepare to return to normal, there will be a need to ensure that staff and customers are protected from the spread of COVID-19. Conveyors not only have an important part to play in making this happen but also offer an efficient, cost-effective, productive and safe solution for water treatment, sewage and reservoir sites that need to improve their processing capability, meet an increase in demand or simply make their operation more safe and efficient.

If you’ve not thought about how conveyors can support your water, sewage or reservoir site before, you should, and if you want to know more about how you can improve what you already have whilst protecting the people that matter the most to your business, without compromising the quality of the service you offer, Coveya can help.
