Sludge can also be applied through an open channel with an inlet to each cell controlled by a slide gate. With either type, a concrete splash block should be provided to receive the falling sludge and to prevent erosion of sand surface. Conventional Sand Drying Beds Conventional sand drying beds are the oldest and most commonly used type of drying bed. They are generally used for communities with populations of fewer than 20,000.
In addition, there are heavy metals from family living pipeline systems such as copper, zinc and so on. This machine can indirectly heat or cool the material in the paste, particle, powder and slurry state. It can perform the process of drying, cooling, heating, sterilizing, reacting and combustion under low temperature burning and so on. The specially designed wedge type of blade with the function of stirring and heating transferring blade has the features of high heat transferring efficiency provide self-cleaning function on the heat transferring area. This is basically a thermal drying process where thermal energy is provided to the sludge to evaporate water. The process of drying sludge reduces volume of the product, making its storage, transportation, packaging and retail easier.
Due to the latter function of the shovel sludge can be back-mixed or sludge feeding and removal take place at the same hall side. Medium-Temperature Belt Dryers wherein the sludge is convectively dried with hot air (up to 145° Celsius). The dried product has a solid concentration ranging from 70% DS up to 95% DS. Wastewater sludge is dried to minimize its mass and to save sludge hauling and disposal costs. Handling and storage of dried sludge is easy and all further disposal and utilization methods are possible. The dried product can be used as fertilizer and as well as fuel – its caloric value is similar to that of brown coal.
The dewatered sludge cake is driven through the gap between the cone and the basket and drops onto a conveyor or directly into a dumpster. The screw flights are provided with brushes for continuous internal cleaning of the wedge section basket. Spray nozzles are also provided for periodic cleaning of the basket from the outside with spray water. The basket is provided with a cover for housekeeping and odor containment. Sludge is applied to the cells of the sand drying bed through a pressurized pipe with a valved outlet to each cell or with a shear gate at the end of the outlet to each cell. Provisions should be made to flush the piping and, if necessary, to prevent it from freezing in cold climates.

It also may be spread on agricultural land in order to make use of its value as a soil conditioner and fertilizer. Since sludge may contain toxic industrial chemicals, it is not spread on land where crops are grown for human consumption. Dewatering systems usually dewater sludge to % water and it is still very heavy. This means transferring that weight in sludge and water to the landfill. These units will dewater 40-10% water, thereby delivering a useful bio-solid as a green by-product.
The Griffin solution transforms municipal sites into Class A biosolids producers. The reduced costs of operations enable our clients to process their biosolids and create revenue streams by using expanded capacity to process their regional municipal waste water treatment plants’ biosolids. The impact diverts hundreds of tons per day of 80% water 20% solids) sludge from the landfills and promotes its use as 90% solids soil amendment. The process meets the EPA 503 regulations standards for pathogen reduction and promotes nutrient recovery. Protecting the environment while creating revenue centers for municipalities. The sludge enters the guide plate of the dryer from the feeder through the chute.
the level of fibres, mainly in primary sludge, deteriorates self-granulation. A critical level of 5% is normally accepted (this level is defined as the point when wet screening (500 µm mesh) categorically rejects dewatered sludge). It should be noted that the rheology of dewatered sludge changes when stored .
