Municipal Sludge and Biosolids
Komline-Sanderson's pumping, thickening, dewatering and drying technologies are used to help municipal wastewater (sewage) treatment plants reduce their sludge and biosolids disposal cost. Thickening greatly reduces the sludge volume for land application or improved digester performance. Belt press dewatering meets landfill disposal requirements for cake solids.
Biosolids (sludge) drying allows for disposal cost reduction and for the beneficial reuse of biosolids as soil amendments (fertilizers) and fuel (green fuel). The K-S Paddle Dryer can be heated with either steam or thermal fluid (hot oil).
