  • Škvorec WWTP in Czech Republic - Case Study

    Client's voice Since we had installed VOLUTE Dewatering Press in our waste water treatment plant I realized how much time we were wasting using dewatering bags. VOLUTE doesn´t need my presence and works fully automatically. I don´t sometimes even know that there is a dewatering unit in operation. Dewatering Data Sludge Type: Waste ...

  • Effect of synthetic cationic surfactants on dewaterability and settleability of activated sludge

    Dimeric cationic surfactants with different lengths of carbon chains were synthesised, and then these surfactants were added to the activated sludge samples to evaluate the dewaterability and settleability. The adsorbability of cationic surfactants on activated sludge was also studied. By comparing the dewatering performances of different cationic surfactants, the effect mechanisms of cationic ...

  • Pyrobustor - A Proven,Small-Scale, Biosolids-to-Energy Solution

    27 municipalities in southern Germany set up a special-purpose entity called KSV GmbH for the specific purpose of disposing regional sewage sludge. The goals of this project were two-fold; eliminate the expensive cost of transporting sewage sludge over long distances and avoid incalculable costs by outsourcing sludge disposal. To achieve this, KSV GmbH installed the Pyrobustor® at the ...

  • An analysis of the environmental management elements related to the improvements of the drying kinetics of waste activated sludge by Fenton peroxidation

    Advanced sludge treatment processes (AST) reduce the amount of sludge produced and improve the dewaterability, thus probably also affecting the heat transfer properties and the drying characteristics of the sludge. This paper studies the influence of the Fenton peroxidation on the thermal conductivity of the sludge. Results demonstrate that the Fenton's peroxidation improves the sludge cake ...

  • Wastewater from metal finishing industry set for more regulation from the Environmental Protection Agency

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released its preliminary 2014 Effluent (liquid waste or sewage discharged into a river or sea) Guidelines Program, which outlined more regulations for wastewater from those within the metal finishing industry. A filter press has been a long-trusted solution for treating metal waste, even for those applications that are difficult to dewater. ...

  • Oil Field Sludge Dewatering

    An oil field contract dewatering company was unable to dewater the oily/water/solids from several oil field storage tanks using conventional coagulants/flocculants. The swings in solids loading and oil content made it very difficult to control the correct dosage rate as conventional chemistry has a very tight tolerance to maintain a dewaterable floc. The result was an ongoing blinding problem for ...

  • "The maintenance works now became much easier." (US)

    This sewage treatment plant had always faced problems with the belt press which had been installed. The end-user had not only had problems with high cost for water consumption but also had maintenance issues arising out of frequently caused clogging problems. Moreover, since this plant mixes sludge cake with wood chips for composting, there had also been an issue concerning the dryness of sludge ...

  • Impact of Polymer Type and Dose on the Fate and Survival of Fecal Coliform during Centrifuge Dewatering

    Recent studies reported significant increases in indicator bacteria counts in anaerobically digested sludge samples during and shortly after centrifugal dewatering. The reasons behind the observed increases are not yet well-understood. This study investigated the effect of centrifuge shear and polymer addition on the fecal coliform counts measured after centrifugation. Centrifuge shear and ...

  • Rural community sewerage case study

    Succeeded in "zero-emission" of sludge Previously, sludge was vacuumed out in this treatment plant without being dewatered; however, the cost for sludge treatment was huge. Thus, aiming at "zero-emission" of sludge, fermentation of the sludge was being considered. AMCON's offer for a solution They introduced Dell Compo, which can treat sludge ...

  • Anaerobic thermophilic digestion of sewage sludge with a thickened sludge recycle

    The process of anaerobic thermophilic digestion of municipal wastewater sludge with a recycled part of thickened digested sludge, was studied in semi-continuous laboratory digesters. This modified recycling process resulted in increased solids retention time (SRT) with the same hydraulic retention time (HRT) as compared with traditional digestion without recycling. Increased SRT without ...

  • Septic Tank for Commercial Building (Ukraine (2))

    As for this septic tank, thickened sludge had been pumped to a tanker truck for disposal 2-3 times a month. However, there had been longstanding concerns confronted by the end user. Their concerns were not only the high sludge disposal cost but also the odor which comes along with the presence of a tanker truck. They had looked for a suitable sludge dewatering unit for small-scale wastewater ...

  • Lead Plating

    A Midwest company is plating lead and etching the material with an HCl batch. The resultant wastewater had a lead concentration of 2,000-4,000 ppm. Traditional chemistry (pH adjustment to 9.8, coagulation/flocculation) could only decrease the concentration to 5.0 ppm. The facility was had to retreat the wastewater and only then could reach a lead level of 3.0 ppm.  With the use of the ...
