AE Installs Sludge De-watering Technology

April 27, 2018

In our continual effort to provide competitive options for industrial waste disposal, AE has focused on the minimization of tank sludge through the physical/chemical treatment process.  Industry research brought us to a new technology that utilizes precision machined stainless steel plates that slip on each other, allowing only liquid to pass through.  A small amount of proprietary polymer is mixed with the sludge/slurry prior to feeding through an enclosed auger system. The auger system moves the sludge over the slip plates.  The technology is widely used in the agricultural world, but we quickly realized that it may provide us with the "in line" method for sludge de-watering that we have been looking for.  We were very fortunate to work with a contractor that supplied a trailer mounted unit to test onsite.  Through weeks of testing we determined that the system was very successful in removing water from our tank sludges.  This process also allowed us to calculate the size of system that we would need for our current operations and for the future.  We put together a quick video outlining the system.  Check it out!
