  • 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 ...

  • Lab Scale Activated Sludge Reactors - EBS - Wastewater Training and Consulting

    Lab scale activated sludge reactors have been employed by those in academia who study wastewater systems for decades to analyze the effects of selected variables on the treatment of many unique waste streams. Their purpose is to mimic the conditions found in full scale systems as closely as is possible in a system that can be confined to a typical laboratory bench top. The advantage of lab scale ...

  • 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 ...
