Daily operation and monitoring of the customer’s sludge treatment facilities is carried out using reliable and modern technology and is carried out by our experienced operators in Bergen.
This process is low maintenance and chemical free. The process cleans wastewater and concentrates it from <0.1% to 5-8% dry matter.
The decanter removes more of the water bringing the sludge up to between 25% and 40% dry matter.
Drying and cooling
The drying is efficiently achieved by friction which warms the now pre-treated sludge to between 110-120°C causing rapid evaporation of the remaining moisture. Following this drying process, the sludge is now approx. 95% dry matter and sterilized. Finally, the dry sludge is run through a cooling screw conveyor to ensure that the material is stable for storage.
The steam created by the drying process is cleaned in the scrubber to remove particles and eliminate any possible odour issues.
