  • New processes for the improvement of sludge digestion and sludge dewatering

    INTRODUCTIONThe examination of numerous sewage sludges from municipal wastewater treatment plants leads to the conclusion that on the one hand dewaterability of these sludges worsens and that on the other hand dewaterability of sludges becomes more and more important due to increasing disposal costs. Especially wastewater treatment plants with inflows from the food processing industry often face ...

  • Processing Wastewater Sludge Using Dewatering Containers

    The relative cost of dewatering equipment varies widely and is directly related to the processing rate. For smaller utilities that need to dewater sludge in batches, dewatering containers are an alternative that can be relatively inexpensive and simple when compared to other technologies on the market. The most common type of dewatering container is based on a roll-off box design, although any ...

  • Effect of Microsludge on Anaerobic Digester Performance and Residuals Dewatering at La County’s JWPCP

    MicroSludge™ is a patented chemical and pressure pretreatment process that liquefies waste activated sludge (WAS) to increase both the rate and extent that it is degraded in a conventional mesophilic anaerobic digester (CMAD). The process uses chemical pretreatment to weaken cell membranes and a high-pressure homogenizer, or “celldisrupter”, to provide an enormous and sudden pressure change to ...

  • Improved dewatering of CEPT sludge by biogenic flocculant from Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans

    Bioleaching using an iron-oxidizing bacterium, Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans, and its biogenic flocculants was evaluated to improve the dewaterability of chemically enhanced primary treatment (CEPT) sewage sludge. CEPT sludge in flasks was inoculated with A. ferrooxidans culture, medium-free cells and the cell-free culture filtrate with and without the energy substance ...

  • Dewatering of moist sediments and soils for application to RaPID Prep AND RaPID assays procedures

    BACKGROUND INFORMATION: High moisture content (>30% by weight) can significantly lower concentrations of analytes detected in the RaPID Prep soil methods. In these methods, water associated with a sample will increase the volume of the extraction solution (liquid phase) and decrease the amount of soil (solid phase) in a weighed sample. In some cases, water may also decrease the ...


  • For Light Industry, Geotube Dewatering Technology Provides An Effective Solution - Case Study
