IDS dewatered biosolids from bio ponds utilizing centrifuge equipment at a Southwest Washington industrial facility. Material was pumped off of the bottom of the ponds and fed into the centrifuge, allowing the liquids to separate from the solids using centrifugal forces. The project removed 20 tons of biosolids per shift at a rate of 20% solids. The dried biosolids were transported for disposal at an approved disposal facility. The reduction in total material by IDS’s processes results in great savings in transportation and disposal costs to its customer.
