Sludge Removal Equipment Not Working Properly

No paint detack and sludge conditioning program will be successful if the sludge removal equipment is not working properly. Whether it’s a flotation/dewatering device, centrifuge, gravity filter, etc., the equipment must be maintained regularly and operated to its design specs. Some key aspects of running the equipment within design include proper flow rates, solids loading levels matched to the equipment, and correct filter media and processing cycles, to name a few.
