Centrifuges

Centrifugal thickening increases the sludge concentration by encouraging the particles to migrate to the walls of a rapidly rotating cylindrical vessel under the influence of a centrifugal force. Thickening centrifuges employ relatively low speeds, compared to dewatering centrifuges, such that the product sludge retains the free-flowing properties of the feed and can therefore still be pumped

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.
