Sludge Thickening - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

3.12.7.5 Centrifugal Thickening. Centrifuge thickening is commonly used for WAS thickening. It is a self-contained process that uses high speed centrifugal forces to separate SS from the liquid. The solids are forced to the perimeter of the bowl, conveyed by a scroll to one end of the unit, and discharged.

Kadant Fiber Processing - Thickening

The Kadant Direct Discharge disk filter is optimal for stock thickening and water return/channeling, removing water from pulp slurry. The pulp slurry is fed to the disk filter at approximatively 1% concentration and is accepted at 10%. The disk filter's main advantage over other dewatering equipment is that it retains most of the fibers.

Alfa Laval in brief

Gluten thickener Another advantage with decanter centrifuges is that they operate at a much lower gluten concentration, typically 25–50 g/l compared to 130–150 g/l for RVDFs. For small and medium-sized plants (< 300 MT/day) this means the same gluten thickener can be used after a revamp without any need for further gluten thickeners.

ALDRUM Sludge Thickening System - Drum Thickener - Alfa ...

The ALDRUM Drum Thickener works on the principle of conveying polyelectrolyte treated (flocculated) sludge through a slowly rotating drum filter. The sludge remains in the drum, while the water phase passes through the filter cloth. The Sludge concentration can thus be regulated by adjusting the feed rate, angle and speed of the drum.
