Sludge dewatering is a method used to create highly concentrated dry cakes out of your wastewater. Oftentimes, this is done to meet the strict disposal regulations in place. However, there are a few other times when a company can benefit from dewatering.
When You Need To Reduce Wastewater Volume
Dewatering focuses on reducing the amount of liquid and, therefore, the weight and volume of your sludge. If you need to reduce the volume of sludge your company produces, this is a great way to accomplish this goal.
When Your Disposal Costs Are Too High
Disposing of sludge can be very costly. Disposing of solid cakes is much more cost-effective. Therefore, dewatering can serve as a way to reduce your sludge disposal costs.
When You Want To Minimize Your Chance of Spillage
Dewatering will give you a dry cake to dispose of. Not only does this mean that you have a more cost-effective way to dispose of your sludge, but it also means that you have a lower chance of spilling hazardous materials during transportation. Spillage is a costly problem that you want to minimize at any opportunity you can.
When You Want To Reuse Your Wastewater
Wastewater recycling often occurs after your sludge has been dewatered. This is because the liquid can be treated to remove any harmful contaminants and reused in many industries. While this water is non-potable, there are many things it can be used for. For instance, it can be used as a source of fuel in steam-powered plants.
When You Want To Try Out a Different Machine
Most people think dewatering machinery sounds dull and labor-intensive. In reality, the process involves highly automated machinery that you can easily rent and use when you want to try out a new tool.
Dewatering your sludge is a good way to improve the cost-efficiency of your disposal process. These are just some of the times when you should consider using dewatering in your business.
