  • Thicker sludge saves time and money

    Recent improvements in pump technology prompted Severn Trent Water (STW) to initiate a de-sludging trial to reduce costs and energy consumption by producing thicker sludge in the Primary Settlement Tank (PST). Advanced monitoring instrumentation from HACH LANGE played a key role in the trial which, nine months after it began, has been heralded a success. STW's Mark Bryan summarises the objective ...


  • Supercritical water oxidation of sewage sludge

    ABSTRACT Supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) is an innovative and effective destruction method for organic wastewater and sludge. Several tests of the destruction of sewage sludge by SCWO have been done at two state of the art pilot plants. These units have capacities of 250 kg/h and 1100 kg/h, respectively. The test results show that the technology easily destroys the organic ...

  • Silver nanoparticles in sewage sludge harmful to soil microorganisms

    Recent research has found that silver nanoparticles in sewage sludge, which is used on agricultural land as a fertiliser, can be toxic to soil microorganisms. The researchers calculated that a maximum of 30mg of silver nanoparticles per kilogram of sludge can be applied to land before harm occurs, based on typical application rates in Germany of five tons per hectare of farmland every three ...

  • New wastewater treatment technology to produce less sludge

    A major environmental challenge for wastewater treatment is the disposal of excess sludge produced during the process. The LIFE Perbiof project has been developing and testing a technology that will help to overcome this challenge. Results demonstrate it can perform highly effective treatment of municipal wastewater (removing 80% of the organic content) while producing low levels of sludge. ...

  • Find Your Blanket with this Automatic Sludge Blanket Level Detector

    Markland's Detector monitors solid-liquid interface levels in clarifiers, sedimentation basins and tanks, and automates silt/sludge/bio-solids removal. It allows operators to program de-sludge pumps to operate only when necessary, preventing carryover, optimizing feed density for enhanced dewatering, reducing energy usage. The slim profile and use of LEDs make this process control instrument ...

  • Hach releases low-maintenance sludge blanket for level monitoring

    Hach’s SONATAX sc optimizes sludge extraction, manages recirculation, and warns of potential solids washouts that may result in costly permit violations. The SONATAX sc probe stays clean by using a magnetic coupled wiper that wipes the face of the probe. The wiper functions with a magnetic connection and without a shaft so there are no o-rings to replace and no need to open the probe housing. ...

  • Moyno 2000 HS System Technology Targets Dewatered Sludge Cake

    The Moyno 2000 HS system is a significant technology advancement for the wastewater treatment industry. It can pump filter cake further distances with higher volumetric efficiencies than any other progressing cavity pump. Its twin-screw feeder supplies a constant, pressurized feed rate to the pump resulting in a 100 percent pump cavity fill rate. The Moyno 2000 HS System features an integral ...

  • French WWTP are using PCME VIEW 370 for sludge dryer particulate monitoring

    The amount of dust produced in the dryer and later processing plant is affected by the type of dryer installed. As sewage sludge dust has a similar range of figures to wood flour, there is the potential for a dust explosion to occur in the main dryer, dust collection and handling plant, pelletiser and final product discharge plant. The material can also self heat leading to ignition and a slow ...
