  • Comparison of centrifuge and belt press for compressible digested sludge after thermal hydrolysis

    Abstract Historically it has been shown on many projects that centrifuges can outperform belt presses in dewatering digested sludge. However, results from a number of projects where sludege has been treated before digestion with Cambi thermal hydrolysis process (THP) hase shown good results for belt press dewatering - generally greater than 30% DS. The authors propose that the main mechanism in ...
