Our low temperature batch and continuous drying system is designed to dry sludge produced by either a plate and frame filter press, a belt filter press, a centrifuge or some similar device. The sludge cake is dried by the injection of recycled, warm, dry air. The saturated air which comes off the top of the sludge container is passed over refrigerated coils, where the moisture is removed, and then reheated prior to injection into the container. That closed loop drying process eliminates emissions to the air and the burden of EPA air permits.

  • Dried sludge only contains 10% water
  • Operating temperature of the process is a maximum of 86 degrees F (30 degrees Centigrade)
  • Electrical usage is only 150 Watts per pound (330 Watt / l) of water removed
  • No emissions to surrounding atmosphere
  • Ruggedly built
  • Lower disposal charges for solid waste
  • No air permits
  • Employee exposure to dust and processing vapors is virtually eliminated
  • Rapid payback of capital investment
  • Typically cost 50-70% less to own and operate than conventional thermal drying systems
  • Can be integrated into existing filter press in container unloading applications
