The IFT Rotary Drum Sludge Thickener offers best in class performance for achieving 5-15% solids for municipal wastewater sludge. JWC’s Rotary Drum Thickener almost exclusively utilizes woven wire mesh screening panels for the construction of the drum. This allows for capture rates in excess of 98% and a much lower polymer use compared to systems using perforated plates or wedgewire drums. The wire mesh screening media is built into removable panels that are installed on a drum frame. This allows for a simple exchange of screening panels if they are damaged or conditions change without having to acquire a full drum.
The IFT Rotary Drum Thickener requires an incredibly short dwell time in the flocculation tank to achieve the required floc structure. This means the unit will use less polymer and require a smaller tank.
The systems is fully enclosed to collect filtrate water and easily connect to a plants odor control systems. This leads to a much cleaner and less odorous work environment when compared to other thickening technologies like belt presses.
