Sludge dewatering is the process of removing water from the sludge i.e. generated by DAF or clarification.
The sludge produced from a DAF or clarifier will often still contain a large amount of water,
this means that significant amount of storage area your sludge holding tank is now full of water that could go to sewer. This water along with the sludge is typically pumped away from the site in tankers at significant cost to your business.
GPC’s high molecular weight flocculants in conjunction with a screw press can greatly
increase the efficiency of the treatment process, often eliminating the need for tankers saving
your business thousands of pounds a year as well as reducing your carbon footprint!*
The use of an organic primary coagulant in conjunction with a flocculent can greatly enhance the results given on a belt press or plate and frame press.
Sludge dewatering is effective for recycling water and the process will also reduce disposal costs.
Sludge Dewatering The Key Benefits
Reducing your carbon footprint.
You can reduce your carbon footprint with sludge dewatering.
Transport accounts for around a quarter of UK greenhouse gas emissions and affects air quality at
the roadside. By removing the need for tankers onsite, you’ll be helping to improve the air quality around your factory, making the area more pleasant for your staff and visitors as well as helping to lower the UK’s pollution levels.
Reducing high waste disposal transport costs with sludge de watering.
You can reduce high waste disposal transport costs with sludge dewatering.
Many businesses require more than 3 tankers a week to remove their wastewater sludge, by dewatering the sludge, the volumes can in many cases be reduced by up to 50%!
The resulting thickened sludge can then be disposed of in much more environmentally friendly methods. Many companies using anaerobic digesters will often take this sludge away for free saving your company thousands in annual waste disposal costs.
*Every effluent flow is different, actual results and savings may differ. Dry solids will still need to be disposed of.
