TECHNICAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT

As of today, several technologies are available for thickening waste activated sludge. Presently gravity belt thickeners (GBTs) tend to be the most commonly installed for waste activated sludge thickening applications (Water Environment Federation, 2012). However, new advancements in thickening centrifuges give reason to believe that the centrifuge may be economically competitive with GBTs and

What is sludge treatment? Sludge Processing

22.06.2020 · In gravity thickening, the solids are allowed to settle and the supernatant liquid removed, reducing the sludge volume as a result. Solids may also be encouraged to float and removed by a skimmer, as in a dissolved air flotation thickener. Thickening by draining can be achieved with either a rotary drum or a gravity belt thickener.
