IDS utilized its 125 cubic foot plate and frame press to remove liquids from acid tank sludge at a pulp facility in Southwest Washington. During this seven day project, sludge from the bottom of two 200,000 gallon acid settling tanks were pumped and processed through IDS’s filter press. The filter pressing produced an average of 120 tons per day of product at 45% solids. The dewatering of the sludge reduces overall tons, significantly decreasing the cost of transportation and disposal to an approved disposal facility for IDS’s customer.
