Industrial sludge filtration

Sludge filtration and compacting

The precipitated sludges are extracted from the sedimentation tank and transferred to a vertical flow sedimentation tank for the concentration phase. In practice, the most common sludge treatment is with a filter press, which produces sludge cakes consisting of between 40% and 50% dry material. Other options include band filters, bag filters, etc.
