The maturation process of hyperthermal mud makes the mud suitable to be used for mud-pack treatment of patient.
Maturation takes place in special tanks (see video below).
The maturation process starts when the thermal water is mixed with clay. Each tank has a hot thermal water pipe, which flows continuously over the mud at a constant level.
In addition, the mud is transferred from one container to another; so that the constant rotation allows for a more uniform ripening of the Abano Terme mud.
Maturation time depends on the full colonization of the mud by thermophilic microorganisms, but it is generally 50-60 days, during which hyperthermal water constantly flows over the mud at a temperature of about 60°C.
