Flash dryers

Flash dryers are employed for industrial process slurries which have a relatively easily-removed moisture content, and are not currently applied to sewage sludge.The sludge is dried using a rising hot air stream, flowing at 20–30 m/s, to both suspend and dry the particles, and the dried product is separated using cyclones and/or bag filters. They operate at very short residence times, and so have a relatively small footprint.

Anaerobic digestion optimization through thermal hydrolysis pre-treatment

Pre-treatment of sludge by thermal hydrolysis upstream of anaerobic digestion is used to improve AD efficiency. A study looked at (pre-)commissioning data for a full-scale AD installation undergoing upgrading with TH to assess the basis for optimisation.
