Sludge Dewatering

Not only water

Sludge dewatering packages, which are installed after a sludge thickening unit in a water or wastewater treatment plant, are used to recover water from sludge and reduce its volume.

Idroconsulting is provided with a wide range of equipment in order to obtain sludge with solid concentration up to 20%.


Sludge gravity thickener is a circular tank or basin equipped with a special slow mixer and with bottom slope to increase the sludge concentration by removing part of the free surface water.
