Dewatering Equipment

Bright Technologies, Division of Sebright Products, 0.6-meter skid-mounted belt filter press

The compact 0.6-meter skid-mounted belt filter press from Bright Technologies, Division of Sebright Products, has stainless steel frame and roller construction as well as radius wedge zone and wing roller for sludge dewatering. Components include a sludge pump, polymer system and washwater booster pump. Options include a sludge flowmeter, air compressor and discharge conveyors. The compact walk-around skid design can be utilized in as little as a 10-by-20-foot floor area. The Boerger rotary lobe sludge pump has a convenient maintain-in-place design. Cake solids of up to 35% can be achieved. Rates of 25 to 50 gpm work well with small applications or when a processor has outgrown dewatering containers, according to the maker. 800-253-0532;

In the Round Dewatering horizontal drum

The horizontal biosolids dewatering system from In the Round Dewatering features a stainless steel drum with perforated plastic tile lining. The drum is mounted on a roll-off frame for easy transport and unloading. Trays contain discharge water. An 18,000- to 25,000-gallon batch is mixed with polymer before being filtered in the rotating drum, which is driven by a 1/2 hp variable-speed electric motor with a heavy-duty chain and sprocket. Turning eliminates crusting and wet pockets to produce uniform, consistent results. The dewatered material dumps easily, and the drum is self-cleaning. 317-563-2072;

 Roll-Off Containers

AQUA-Zyme Disposal Systems ADS

The ADS 30-yard open-top roll-off dewatering unit from AQUA-Zyme Disposal Systems can be filled with 22,000 to 25,000 gallons of biosolids at 1% to 2% solids in about two hours. After draining for 24 hours, the unit can be picked up using a standard-capacity roll-off truck and transported for solids disposal. Sludge volume can be reduced by 80% with reductions to 98% in BOD, COD, FOG and TSS. Effluent is clear, the unit has few moving parts, and the size of filter media can be selected according to job requirements. Standard equipment includes a roll-over tarp system; side, floor and center screens; 1/4-inch floor plate; 7-gauge side plates; four door-binder ratchets; eight drain ports; two inlet ports; and a long-handle scraper. Units are also available in a 15-yard size. 979-245-5656;

Park Process Sludge King II

The Sludge King II roll-off dewatering container from Park Process incorporates an engineered design that eliminates trapped water in the bottom of the filter cake. The second center- wall filter increases filter area by 33% producing drier cakes in less time. The plastic floor panels that cover the floor space between wall filters and center-wall filters serve three purposes: They hold down the bottom of the filter elements, help to eliminate standing water and facilitate the dumping of filter cake. The inlet manifold is split into three inlets, each with a ball valve, allowing the incoming flow to be distributed evenly into three compartments formed by the two center-wall filters. 855-511-7275;

The combination of grinding, solids removal, washing and dewatering allows a typical septage truck to unload in 5 to 15 minutes. It is completely enclosed to ensure safety, vector control and containment of foul odors. The optional MonsterTrack metering and control system uses a flowmeter to track septage and provide accurate billing data for the facility and a receipt for the hauler. 800-331-2277;

Lakeside Equipment Raptor Septage Acceptance Plant

Remove debris and inorganic solids from septage tanks, grease traps, sludge, leachate and industrial waste with the fully automated Raptor Septage Acceptance Plant from Lakeside Equipment. It includes the Raptor Fine Screen, which compacts and dewaters the captured screenings to a solids content of 40%. The screen’s rotating rake teeth fully penetrate the cylindrical screen bars, which prevents plugging and blinding from grease and small debris. This allows for faster unloading times. The Raptor Acceptance Control System is a security access station that can be integrated with the SAP to allow authorized haulers to unload their waste at the facility. Adding the data management and accounting system with the RACS station provides capabilities to track and invoice customers. 630-837-5640;
