with all units the infeed sludge is mixed will or other chemicals and placed onto a moving porous belt or screen. dewatering occurs as the sludge moves through a series of rollers which squeeze the sludge to the belt or squeeze the sludge between

monroe environmental designs and manufactures primary and secondary circular clarifiers for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment as well as flocculating clarifiers and solids contact clarifiers for clean water or potable water applications.
gravity thickening method relying on gravity principle can be applied to both untreated primary and even waste activated sludge. it is normally done in a circular tank similar in design compared with a typical plant sedimentation tank.flow of sludge coming from the aeration system is directed to the center well and the design is such that there is sufficient detention time enough for good
chapter 5 sludge treatment 5.1 sludge definition:the main goal of sludge thickening is to reduce the sludge volume by removing as much as possible of the water content of sludge leading tothickener design criteria:ls = solids loading rate = 50 kg/m2.d assumed
sludge treament a volume reduction of approximately 3080 % can be reached with sludge thickening before a further treatment. at smaller wastewater treatment plants where the sludge is driven off regularly thickening usually takes place directly in the sludge storage tank.
a design method for thickeners and clarifiers known as the batch flux curve technique was developed over 20 years ago but still is not wellknown in design and operating circles. an informal survey of major clarifier and thickener manufacturers found that none of the firms surveyed use this method for sizing and maximizing operating conditions.

january 2016 58 design criteria ch. 5 5.4.2 sludge removal sludge collection and withdrawal facilities shall be designed to assure rapid removal of the sludge. provisions shall be made to permit continuous sludge removal from settling tanks. final clarifiers in activated sludge plants shall be provided with positive scraping devices.
itcombines the principle of lamellar settling with an integrated sludge thickener. no need of additional sludge thickening equipment before dewatering. the densification of sludge allows to reduce the volume of extracted sludge and thus limit the water loss.
this manual presents a critical review of municipal wastewater sludge dewatering process technology. particular emphasis is given to the development of a procedure for the selection and design of a dewatering process. included in the manual are discussions of sludge characteristics dewatering
practical design criteria. in the premodelling era engineers developed various complex criteria which as they believed describe the state and the maximum acceptable loading of clarifiers.in addition they developed geometrical and other recommendations. some of the many criteria proposed and contained in technical standards and guidelines are presented and reviewed in this chapter.

this means that the settling thickening tank has a total depth of 2.5 meters and a total volume of 1200 cubic. the third step in the design of the settlingthickening tank in lubigi was to select the width and the length. this slide shows the top view of the two settlingthickening tanks with sludge flowing from the right to the left side.
how a thickener works thickening or dewatering may be defined as the removal of a portion of the liquid from a pulp or slime made up of a mixture of finely divided solids and liquids. the early methods of thickening employed plain flatbottomed tanks into which the pulp was fed until the tank was full.
