Dewatering equipment is designed to separate water from solids using force, including vacuum and centrifugal motion. Used widely in waste management, dewatering equipment can save money by reducing solids handling or disposal expenses charged on a unit-weight basis. The weight percentage of water in landfill-bound solids and raw wastewater sludge can effectively double or triple the cost of removal or treatment services.

Depending on the solid and the size of the operation, dewatering can be more cost-effective than heat drying systems for water removal because the energy cost to power an oven or microwave can be much higher than to power a motor or pump. It is also easier to streamline dewatering methods into a process line. In applications demanding very high levels of water removal, dewatering is generally used as the primary method, followed by heat drying or digestion stages.

Selecting a Dewatering Method:

  • Characteristics of dewatering equipment vary by method. However, the exact performance specifications and design considerations apply to all dewatering technologies. Specifications that describe dewatering performance include cake dryness, solids recovery and drying time. Considerations for the design and operation of this equipment include operating costs, chemical usage, and required maintenance.
