Sludge Treatment Thickening

What is the Sludge Thickening Process in Water Treatment

2018-03-06· Sludge contains biosolids that have been removed from liquid sewage. Sludge thickening is the process used in wastewater treatment centers to increase the solids concentration and decrease free water. This step minimizes the load on sludge dewatering and digestion.

Sludge Thickening Sewage Treatment Reverse Osmosis

Wastewater treatment plants commonly use thickening devices to increase the solids concentration at the end of a particular process step within the activated sludge process. Thickening of sludge increases its solids content and reduces the volume of free water thereby minimizing the unit load on downstream processes such as digestion and

Sewage sludge treatment Wikipedia

Thickening is often the first step in a sludge treatment process. Sludge from primary or secondary clarifiers may be stirred (often after addition of clarifying agents) to form larger, more rapidly settling aggregates. Primary sludge may be thickened to about 8 or 10 percent solids, while secondary sludge may be thickened to about 4 percent solids.

The main targets of sludge treatment are volume reduction and substance degradation. The most common conventional processes include sludge thickening, dewatering, and drying. Figure 9.1 presents the sludge solid content (% of dry mass) during the sludge dewatering processes. After thickening, the sludge mass is usually reduced up to 70% of the initial value, due to water loss, and the solid

HUBER Solutions for Sludge Thickening HUBER SE

Thickening is the first step for reducing the sludge volume by removal of free sludge water. Thin sludge is concentrated to thick sludge. Thick sludge has a higher viscosity, but must still be pumpable. Sludge settles in gravity thickeners and is compressed by the weight of its own solids. Due to their higher specific density, primary and

Sludge Thickening an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Sludge Thickening. Sludge thickening is a process in which the solids concentration is increased and the total sludge volume is correspondingly decreased, but the sludge still behaves like a liquid instead of a solid. Thickening commonly produces sludge solids concentrations in the 3% to 5% range, whereas the point at which sludge begins to
