Sludge Dewatering

Hydroflux Industrial have a comprehensive range of advanced industrial sludge dewatering equipment 

Whether the wastewater is being treated by a physical chemical process, or in a form of biological reactor, it is an inevitable result that sludge will be generated.

The sludge produced by just about all types of primary or biological treatment processes can contain quite substantial amounts of free water. A mechanical dewatering plant is designed to remove this free water to produce a spadable or dry sludge which results in a significant volume reduction.

The sludge produced by just about all types of primary or biological treatment processes can contain quite substantial amounts of free water. A mechanical dewatering plant is designed to remove this free water to produce a spadable or dry sludge which results in a significant volume reduction.

There are several types of mechanical dewatering plant, the most commonly used type for dewatering sludge from industrial wastewater treatment plants are screw presses, belt presses, centrifuges and filter presses. Although screw presses are by far the most popular choice for most industry due to attractive life cycle costs and it’s simple operation other types of dewatering systems can have advantages in some cases.

Screw Presses by HUBER Technology is a unique sludge dewatering machine developed by HUBER over 20 years ago and now over 1200 machines have been installed globally in many applications

Centrifuges are very reliable, compact, energy efficient and have exceptional performance and are ideal for dewatering sludge from many types of industrial wastewater treatment

Belt Presses often prove to be one of the most cost effective dewatering options and have the advantage of incorporating an integrated thickening process to allow dewatering of very dilute slurries to form a spadable cake

The Hydroflux chamber filter press is a batch system and is ideally suited to small to medium volumes of sludge. One of the key benefits to the filter press is the dry solids concentration that is unmatched by other dewatering technologies.

Our goal in all cases is to provide high performing, energy efficient equipment and technology for maximising life cycle value and reducing operational costs for each application.
