Dehydration aid

Technology / Service Summary

By adding special fibers into the sludge to make water easier to be squeezed out, the efficiency of dehydrator can be improved.

Purpose

Reduction of sludge generation

Feature

1. Outstanding dispersibility in sludge due to special treatment on fibers
2. Improving the efficiency of dehydration by little adding of fibers
3. Possible to be used for sludge which contains organic and is hard to be dehydrated
4. Providing suitable types to fit all kinds of dehydrators
5. Spontaneous combustion of sludge becomes possible depending on the conditions

Effect

1. Improvement of sludge treatment capability
2. Reduction of disposal cost due to reduction of sludge generation
3. Reduction of green house gas emission from sludge incineration
4. Reduction of incineration cost due to lower water content in sludge
