IMPROVED BIOSOLIDS/ BIO SLUDGE DEWATERING WITH WILSA® CONDITIONING
The WILSA ElectroWave™ effect can be used to condition polar fluids to alter their physical
properties, improving several chemical and physical processes.
- Reducing surface tension to improve the ability of water to repel solids - break physical / chemical emulsions
- Increasing the contact angle of water - improve coalescing of solid particulate toaccelerate phase separation
- Lowering the viscosity of water - reduce friction of flocculated solids dropping through less viscous water
- Lower viscosity, reduced surface tension and increased contact angle of water - improve aeration of wastewater
Installation of WILSA® ElectroWave Conditioner upstream of a belt press at a wastewater treatment plant resulted in polymer usage dropping by >50% while achieving much dryer solids.
