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;

Bucks Fabricating Dewatering-Style Roll-Off Containers

Dewatering-style roll-off containers from Bucks Fabricating feature a removable perforated steel basket that filters the materials within, separating the liquids to the bottom while the sludge materials remain on top. From there, the fittings, or apertures, commonly located on the bottom of the sealed tailgate allow the hauler to drain the liquid from the container. This process decreases the container payload. Available in cable, hooklift, combo or permanent-mount hookups, dewatering containers are manufactured in standard and custom sizes. 800-233-0867;

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 eliminate standing water and aid in filter cake dumping. The inlet manifold is split into three inlets, each with a ball valve, allowing incoming flow to be distributed evenly into the three compartments formed by the two center-wall filters. 855-511-7275;
