Sludge and Biosolids Processing Videos

  1. Sludge Thickening – How Our Industry Has Been Calculating Polymer Usage Wrong
    12/14/2018

    Parkson Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the latest video in the Parkson University series, “Sludge Thickening – How Our Industry Has Been Calculating Polymer Usage Wrong.” In this video, we discuss how to correctly calculate polymer use during the sludge thickening process in wastewater treatment.

  2. Rotary Drum Thickener Virtual Tour (ThickTech)
    12/6/2018

    The video provides a different perspective on the sludge thickening process and explains how various features combine to make the ThickTech the best option for low polymer usage and the highest capture rates of 98% or more.

  3. Waste-To-Energy
    10/29/2018

    At Fluence, we have more than 30 years of experience in the design, construction, and operation of waste-to-energy plants for a wide range of industrial and municipal clients. Our proprietary anaerobic treatment technologies process wastewater and sludge to produce biogas, which can be used to produce electricity and thermal energy, or which can be purified to produce biomethane for injection into the grid.

  4. Stokes' Law and How Inclined Plate Settlers (Lamellas) Work
    9/12/2018

    In this video, we discuss the curious science that is the inclined plate settler (also known as a Lamella). The process is a bit counter-intuitive, but through an interesting experiment, this video shows how they work. Inclined plate settlers can reduce required footprint by 80% compared to traditional gravity settling.

  5. Aqua Caiman Articulating Rake Screen
    6/7/2018

    The Aqua Caiman™ represents the next generation of multi-rake mechanical bar screens. In designing the screen, Parkson combined over 40 years of experience working on thousands of in-channel screen installations with in-depth market and engineering research. This allowed us to better understand the weaknesses of existing multi-rake and articulating rake screens.

  6. ThickTech™ Rotary Drum Thickener Product Video
    2/20/2018

    This video examines the economic evaluations of life cycle cost over capital investment and introduces an innovative new bid procedure to assure the best overall value for the end user.

  7. Chain and Scraper Made Easy
    10/29/2016

    Dennis Kaeser, Technical Sales Manager Chain and Scraper for Evoqua, provides an overview of some of the replacement chain and scraper products the Company offers with a particular focus on ease-of-replacement and operator safety.

  8. Retrofitting Your Wastewater Operation
    10/29/2016

    Kevin Westerling interviews Mark Pamperin, a biological processes product manager with Evoqua, about retrofitting and rehab systems for wastewater treatment plants. Their discussion touches on circular clarifiers, anaerobic digestion, brush aerators, chain and scrapers, RBC systems and diffused aeration.

  9. Fresh Solutions For Working With Biosolids
    10/25/2016

    Peter Bugg, Director of Innovation for Ovivo discusses some of the Company’s latest solutions for biosolids including the BioAlganyx and BioLenz products with Bill King at WEFTEC 2016.

  10. Heliantis™ Solar Sludge Drying
    9/12/2016

    Heliantis™ transforms any type of dewatered sludge (15% minimum dry content) into a dry, granulated product with a dry-solids content that can be adjusted within a range of 35% to 85%. Using the sun as the main energy source, the sludge is dried in a greenhouse and a scarifying machine turns over and breaks up the sludge into carbon-neutral and odorless granules, for eventual agricultural reuse or thermal energy production using co-incineration.
