Customers use OMEGA in a number of sludge thickening applications:
- As a final step to increase the dry solids concentration to 6-8%, replacing conventional gravity static thickeners, flotation systems, and other inefficient technologies.
- As a pre-dewatering stage, when combined in?line with a belt filter press, to optimize filter press efficiency.
- As a pre-dewatering stage before a plate filter press or centrifuge, to downsize the dewatering equipment.
- For sludge volume reduction before anaerobic digestion processes to reduce digester size.
OMEGA's innovative and efficient technology reduces sludge volume by at least 4 times. The simple, rugged design offers a number of benefits:
- Low energy consumption
- Reliable and durable components
- Low maintenance and operations supervision
The OMEGA Gravity Belt Thickener range can be designed up to to 200 m³/h of raw sludge
