Activated sludge flocculation method/ Sludge drying, Recycling drying

This is about activated sludge flocculation method which is one of various activated sludge methods in wastewater treatment process. Anaerobic-aerobic method is a wastewater treatment method whose main purpose is to remove phosphorus from wastewater, and a method improved from conventional activated sludge process. As phosphorus removal method, there is anaerobic-aerobic method which is based on biological treatment though, this activated sludge flocculation method can be said as a chemical treatment. Also, it is one of advanced waste water treatments methods since phosphorus removal is done here.


■ About Activated sludge flocculation method 


This is a method to remove phosphorus by adding flocculant into reaction tank of conventional activated sludge process. Flocculant is added to activated sludge containing phosphorus in reaction tanks and flocculation is took place. The wastewater is sent to final settling tank and flocculated activated sludge is settled down and sedimented. Clarified water in the final settling tank is discharged after passing through disinfection apparatus and some of settled activated sludge is returned to reaction tank as returned sludge, then remained stuffs are sent to sludge thickening tank as waste sludge.This method improves sedimentation ratio of activated sludge while phosphorus is removed and can be done additionally in existing wastewater treatment facilities for conventional activated sludge method, therefore, it is now used widely.

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.
