Sludge Thickening

CMC's sludge thickening solutions can help minimize the volume of any liquid feedstock or waste stream. Thickening processes typically concentrate the dry solids content (DS) to a range of 4-12%. These systems use polymers to flocculate the sludge, allowing the separated water to drain by gravity. For even drier material, the thickened sludge can be further processed by downstream dewatering equipment.

Gravity Belt Thickener

The Gravity Belt Thickener is a highly effective tool for dewatering. It operates quietly at a minimal cost, consuming a low volume of wash water.  Sludge is flocculated by the use of polymers, introduced on the belt and the released water is drained through the gravity belt. The GBT is hands down the most cost effective way to thicken solids.

Rotary Drum Thickener

The Enclosed Sieve Drum Concentrator offers compact and easy installation for small to medium sized plants.  A zero trunnion design brings long life and easy maintenance with low energy, polymer and wash water consumption.
