The Process of Sludge Dewatering

Various industries and municipalities rely on the process of sludge dewatering to remove liquid from a slurry mixture, which contains both solids and liquids. Often time, the liquid being removed is water, which is why the process is referred to as “de-watering.” The physical act of filtration, squeezing, compaction and centrifugal separation is much more intensely and consistently carried out by use of mechanical dewatering. Belt filter presses are often used to filtrate the liquid from the slurry mixture with the use of porous belts. These belts allow both gravity and pressure to remove water and thicken the slurry into sludge. The resulting filtrate is removed and piped to the base of the machine. The subsequent water has very low solids and is drained back to the head of the plant.
