Solids Handling / Dewatering

The process focuses on the concept of reducing the moisture content of sludge and biosolids. This process is performed to reduce the volume of solids, lowering hauling and disposal costs. Dewatered solids are generally easier to handle, and in some cases may have less odor. Dewatering can be achieved by a variety of methods from using gravity assisted sand dewatering beds, or thru mechanical equipment such as a belt press or centrifuge.
