CHAPTER 3 SLUDGE THICKENING - Marmara

2012-3-22  The thickening process takes place in a settling tank with long-enough solids retention time. For example in secondary clarifiers of activated sludge systems both clarification and thickening operations are carried out. Actually, the thickening of the sludge is a concern to the operator where he desires a high underflow solids concentration. So it is the general practice to design these processes for both thickening and clarification performance. Similar to the digesters, there are two design approaches in thickeners

Sludge Thickening - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

A commonly employed unit process for dewatering thickened municipal and industrial sludges is the belt filter press. As shown in Fig. 14, chemically conditioned sludge is fed through two filter belts and is squeezed by force to drive water through these belts. Chemical polymers are required to promote flocculation and enhance dewatering.

This is fitted with a stirrer comprising a series of relatively closely-spaced vertical arms, and is therefore similar in appearance to a picket fence. For both designs, the sludge enters the centre of a cylindrical tank and flows out to the periphery.
