Your Complete Source for Dewatering Equipment


Dewatering significantly reduces water content, transforming liquid sludge into a concentrated cake with 15-45% dry solids (DS). This solid cake is easily transported, unlike the original sludge. Dewatering achieves this by applying strong mechanical pressure, squeezing out more water than thickening can. This process improves operational efficiency and reduces costs associated with storage, processing, transport, and ultimately, the final disposal of the sludge.
