  • The Ultimate Solution for treating HF-Sludge: Sludge Dewater Evaporator

    Treats heavy fuel (HF) sludge drain water from >100ppm to 0ppm. The content in the "dark" bottle is the untreated drain water from heavy fuel sludge. The drain water is treated in a vacuum boiler, and the content in the "light" bottle, is the result - 0 ppm. The process is fully automatic, and reduces the HF-sludge volume by more than 80%. This is the ultimate solution for treating ...
