Sludge Thickening an overview ScienceDirect Topics

3.12.7.2 Gravity Thickening. Gravity thickening works on the simple principle of the force of gravity being greater on denser materials. Sludge from the clarifiers is fed from a center well to the tank, and gravity then separates the solids, which settle downward and compact at the bottom of the tank.

Sludge Thickening an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The thickeners must be preceded by flow balancing tanks to contain and mix intermittent sludge discharges and feed the thickeners at a consistent concentration and uniform rate (Fig. 13.1). In applications where used washwater (without settlement) is mixed with clarifier sludge, the sizing of the flow balancing tanks becomes critical because of

CHAPTER 5: SLUDGE TREATMENT FACILITIES 5.1

Thickened sludge may be of two kinds: primary sludge generated in the primary settling tank and excess sludge generated in the secondary settling tank. Sludge thickening may be broadly classified into four types, gravity thickening, centrifugal thickening, floatation thickening and belt-type thickening.

Wastewater treatment Sludge treatment and disposal

Thickening is usually accomplished in a tank called a gravity thickener. A thickener can reduce the total volume of sludge to less than half the original volume. An alternative to gravity thickening is dissolved-air flotation. In this method, air bubbles carry the solids to the surface, where a layer of thickened sludge forms.

CHAPTER 6: DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF SLUDGE

6.2.1 Sludge Piping Sludge piping can be by gravity or by pumping. For example, when primary sludge is drawn from clarifiers, it is sometimes by gravity and sometimes by direct suction using pumps. The friction loss in gravity pipelines and pumped pipelines are calculated as follows. 6.2.1.1 Friction losses in Gravity Sludge Pipelines 1.

5.5 Sludge thickening:- The main goal of sludge thickening is to reduce the sludge volume by removing as much as possible of the water content of sludge, leading to the increase of the solids content of sludge. Thickening is achieved by the following three methods:- a) Gravity thickening:- Gravity thickening is achieved in circular tanks
