Extended aeration process / Sludge drying, Recycling drying

This is about extended aeration process which is one of various types of activated sludge process of waste water treatment. This process is a water treatment method improved from conventional activated sludge process

About extended aeration process


This waste water treatment process doesn’t need the first clarifier which is used in conventional activated sludge process.
By increasing capacity of reaction tank and aeration tank to two to three times larger than ones used in conventional activated sludge process, this waste water treatment process aims to reduce amount of excess sludge generated. This process is said to be economically advantageous for small scale sewage facilities. Main difference of this process compared with others is that processing time in reaction tank is extended to restrain generation of excess sludge. However, since operation time of air blower becomes longer to extend processing time in aeration tank, electricity charge becomes considerably higher compared with conventional activated sludge process. Also, wide area is necessary to perform two to three times more aeration than conventional activated sludge process. Processing time is longer and amount of reduced excess sludge is not so much actually. Perhaps, it cannot be said as the most effective waste water treatment process.

About word, from Wiki

AerationAeration (also called aerification) is the process by which air is circulated through, mixed with or dissolved in a liquid or substance.

This word is commonly used when oxygen is provided to water. One of water cleaning methods. By providing oxygen, decomposition of microbes and organic substances are accelerated.

Types of waste water treatment / sludge drying, slurry drying, waste drying


■ Sludge drying


Water in the sludge thickened in the sludge thickener tank are removed at dehydration process to a certain degree.
However, moisture content is normally more than 80% and the sludge still has adhesiveness and stickiness. Also, latter processes are not easy because of influence of flocculants. Our drying apparatus of KENKI DRYER with international patented technology can surely dry any sticky, adhesive and viscus sludge, and also materials in liquid state like slurry, without clogging inside of the dryer. Also, because of its simple structure, its price is low and apparatus cost of the dryer can be retrieved by reducing industrial waste disposal cost within 3 years. Dried materials can be recycled as fuel, bacterial fertilizer, soil conditioner, etc. since component of the material is hardly changed because of its low-temperature drying method.
It can be applied to a system with pyrolysis apparatus as well.

Sludge drying



Please consider KENKI DRYER for drying of sticky materials, adhesive materials and materials in liquid state that no other dryer can deal with.
Initial, running and maintenance costs are low because of its simple structure based on internationally patented technology.
For sludge drying, costs of our dryers are estimated to be retrieved within 2, 3 years by reducing industrial waste disposal cost.
For raw material slurry drying, laborious works of manual operation will be decreased significantly by replacing box shaped compartment tray dryer with our dryer
In case of organic wastes drying, the waste can be recycled as fuel, fertilizer, soil conditioner and feedstuff after being dried.
