Products & Services: Sludge Dewatering & Processing

June 2, 2018
Collection of sludge dewatering & processing-related products and services for the municipal water industry.

Sludge thickener

The Monster Drum Sludge Thickener from JWC Environmental is designed for achieving 5-15% solids depending on the type of sludge. This sludge thickener is optimized to deliver minimum operating costs while providing superior overall results. Lower operating costs due to fast flocculation and lower polymer use. Control odors and excess water during sludge thickening. Avoid additional operational cost by pre-thickening sludge.

Cutter pump

Commonly used in the primary treatment of raw sewage solids, the Series A Muncher™ from NOV has been macerating solids in pump and lift stations across the country. Cutter materials and thickness options are available for effective and efficient grinding of solids. The lower cutter tip speeds dramatically reduce wear rates, ensure low noise and vibration, and provide abrasion resistance. The Series A Muncher’s rotational speed produces high torque, resulting in lower operating power at 3 hp or 5 hp, and is available with energy-efficient motors.

Solids handling

Zoeller Engineered Products’ solids handling line fits the industry’s need for higher horsepower pumps. The 4” models will provide a moderate flow when pumping against a high head while the 6” pump is ideal for a high flow requirement where a low head exists. The new 64 HD series pumps provide long service life with minimal downtime. The motor is optimally designed with oil-filled housings and non-overloading windings, which enable it to maintain a low operating temperature when facing the harshest of conditions.

Sludge treatment system

The AquaNereda® Aerobic Granular Sludge System is now available in the United States and Canada, exclusively from Aqua-­Aerobic Systems. The AquaNereda aerobic granular sludge technology represents an evolution in activated sludge treatment, replicating the same effluent quality as a well-designed enhanced BNR facility but without the use of chemicals by using the patented aerobic granular sludge technology. The dramatically reduced footprint and low energy requirement of the AquaNereda process provides a competitive alternative for high performance plants.

FOG and odor control

MICROCAT-BioPOPS are rugged, semi-submersible solid forms that slowly dissolve and release safe, naturally-­occurring microbes that can reduce odor and improve fat, oil and grease (FOG) degradation. Composed of slowly dissolving, environmentally sound, biodegradable matrix material packed inside a durable, porous mesh netting, they are designed to be dropped into or suspended by a line or rope in used-water containing systems like drains, grease traps, lift stations, or sewer lines. Available in several sizes, MICROCAT-BioPOPS are ideal for installation in any drain, grease trap, lift station or sewer line experiencing odor problems and/or the buildup of FOG.

CSO, sludge monitoring

Dependable results require reliable sensors. Massa’s FlatPack® series sensors feature unsurpassed results with cone-shaped solids or turbulent fluid conditions. For monitoring sludge overfill in transport containers, the 95 kHz dual-transducer design provides a high acoustic output power and ability to make measurements of uneven solid surfaces to 13 ft. The IP68-rated 160 kHz model housing profile eliminates condensation and overflow risks and in-pipe blockage hang-ups with measurements capability of 1 in. to 5 ft. No-false-echo software standard for easy installation.
