  • Dam Removal, Gob Fire - Case Study

    Coal Gob Fire Quenching – Wellston, Ohio Removal of a dead lake from a former coal mine in Southern Ohio. While working on removal of a dead lake we uncovered a burning gob fire. We moved 45,000 cubic yards of cut to fill and cut to waste, installed 36" reinforced concrete pipe to relieve the dam, and dewatered over 100 million gallons. We moved over 16,000 cubic yards of earth to ...

  • Rectangular Vibrating Screen Separators: Uses and Applications

    Vibratory screeners come in a wide range of sizes and configurations to support a diverse set of applications. Choosing the right machine for your purposes can be a daunting task — particularly if you’re upgrading older equipment that has been used for years. Technology has changed considerably, and there’s a good chance what was best for ...

  • Operational strategy, economic and environmental performance of sludge treatment reed bed systems – based on 28 years of experience

    Sludge treatment reed bed (STRB) systems have been used for dewatering and mineralisation of sludge in Europe since 1988. STRB systems provide substantial environmental, economic, and operational benefits compared to mechanical sludge dewatering solutions such as belt presses and centrifuges. They require less energy, no chemicals, reduce the sludge volume and produce bio solids with dry solid ...

  • Effect of pH on the flocculation behaviors of kaolin using a pH-sensitive copolymer

    pH-sensitive copolymers have been widely introduced to achieve rapid dewatering and consolidation of solids in mining and oil sands processing wastes. But no more attention has been given to the flocculation efficiency of solid suspensions as a function of pH using pH-sensitive copolymer. In this study, a pH-sensitive copolymer was synthesized and employed to investigate the flocculation ...

  • A review on sludge dewatering indices

    Dewatering of sludge from sewage treatment plants is proving to be a significant challenge due to the large amounts of residual sludges generated annually. In recent years, research and development have focused on improving the dewatering process in order to reduce subsequent costs of sludge management and transport. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to establish reliable indices that ...

  • Research on the stability of heavy metals (Cu, Zn) in excess sludge with the pretreatment of thermal hydrolysis

    Thermal hydrolysis (TH) has been used to improve anaerobic digestion performance as well as the stability of heavy metals in sludge. Because the toxicity of heavy metals is closely related to both the concentration and the chemical speciation, more exhaustive studies on speciation distribution are urgently needed. This research aimed to investigate the effects of TH treatment (especially the ...
