aerobic stabilized sludge sludge thickener

Aerobic stabilisation

In thermophilic aerobic digestion systems, special provisions need to be put in place to control foaming and the occasional emission of unpleasant odours. Sludge discharged from a thermophilic aerobic digester operating at a temperature of 60 °C, has bacteria counts that are very much lower than those found in a mesophilic anaerobic digester.

CHAPTER 12 Sludge Processing and Disposal

 · The stabilized sludge and the sludge from the secondary clarifiers are collected in a sludge thickener. The thickened sludge is dewatered using a mechanical belt thickener (dewatering is supported by addition of polymer FLOPAM EM 840 MEB, Korona) and then composted.

Sludge Thickening

sludge thickening. Thickening is the first, and frequently inevitable, step in reducing the volume of sludge extracted from the water line. In fact, it is used to optimise the subsequent conditioning, stabilisation and dewatering stages by reducing structure sizes and operating costs. Extremely dilute sludge delivered by the water line (usually ...

If the sludge treatment line includes their aerobic stabilization, the thickener is generally positioned after this, as this process does not require very high sludge concentrations, not above 2-2.5%, for its proper operation. Flotation is unsuitable for concentrating

Sludge Thickening

Organic sludge must be stabilized before reuse or ultimate disposal except in the case of incineration. The most common method to stabilize residual solids is by aerobic or anaerobic digestion. Aerobic digestion stabilizes excess biological solids by the


Sludge Thickener. The Ovivo sludge thickener is designed to continuously produce as thick a sludge as possible from streams of sludge previously formed and collected in separate settling basins. Included with the thickener mechanism are Ovivo''s durable heavy-duty drives. The drive is designed to handle the specified torque for 20 years of ...

Design Guidelines For Sewage Works: Sludge stabilization | …

 · Sludge supply that is stabilized by aerobic or anaerobic digestion prior to composting can reduce the size of the composting facility due to the reduced organic solids content. In the event that the composting system is overloaded or out-of-service ( e.g. for maintenance), the stabilization of sludge, prior to composting, offers the ability to directly apply biosolids to land on an interim basis.

HUBER Solutions for Septic Sludge Treatment

The sludge cake is then composted for aerobic stabilisation and pathogen reduction. Alternatively, thin septic sludge is concentrated in our ROTAMAT® Screw Thickener and then stabilized in an anaerobic digester. The generated digester gas is used for


A method for the lime stabilization of wastewater sludge, includes the steps of dewatering sludge so as to produce a sludge cake containing from about 10 to 60% by weight of dry solids and rapidly and intimately mixing and reacting the sludge cake with calcium ...


Location of the thickener in a wastewater treatment plant is important. If sludge is to be digested, thickening a blend of primary and waste activated sludge is a good practice. If these sludges are to be dewatered, then they should be thickened separately and mixed

 · A rotary drum thickener (RDT) is based on the same principle as a gravity belt thickener (GBT), in that water drains from the sludge through a retaining porous medium. For an RDT the porous medium is the cylindrical wall of a 0.5βˆ’1.5 m diameter drum which rotates at speeds between 5 and 20 RPM while the sludge continually passes through it.

Process Design Manual Sludge Treatment And Disposal

Increased sludge detention time in the thickener will result in increased underflow solids concentration. A detention period of 24 hours has been suggested as the time required to achieve maximum compaction. Sludge blanket depth and detention time are closely

Sludge Stabilization

 · Sludge may be stabilized using lime, aerobic digestion, or anaerobic digestion. Lime stabilization is achieved by adding lime, either as hydrated lime (Ca(OH)2) or as quicklime (CaO) to the sludge, which raises the pH to 11 or above. This significantly reduces the


Sludge is generally conditioned before thickening and dewatering. Two types of conditioning chemicals are used to enhance the treatability of the sludge: Mineral chemicals such as iron salts and lime. These chemicals are frequently found in filter press ...

What is DAF sludge?

Sludge may be stabilized by use of lime, by aerobic digestion, or by anaerobic digestion. How does a gravity thickener work? Gravity thickening uses the natural tendency of higher-density solids to settle out of liquid to concentrate the solids.
