Similar to the Volute Dewatering Press, the Volute Thickener uses a dewatering drum design for sludge thickening applications. Applications of this product include automated sludge wasting from biological processes within wastewater treatment plants. The Volute Thickener converts dilute sludges to a consistency that allows for more cost-effective transport, digestion, further dewatering or storage.
The Volute Thickener treats flows up to 400 GPM, and is a fully-automated, integrated dewatering system which is effectively maintenance-free. Solids output from the Volute Thickener typically ranges from 3% to 12%, much higher than the incoming sludge concentration.
