Thixotropic behaviour of thickened sewage sludge

Apr 23, 2014· It has been showed that thickened sewage sludge has the similar rheological properties as activated sewage sludge or digested sewage sludge. Similarly as these types of sludges the thickened sewage sludge has thixotropic behaviour in intermediate shear stress. The rate of a thixotropy decreases with an increase of water content in the sample.

Biosolids or Sludge? The Semantics of Terminology | WWD

Dec 28, 2000· Gravity thickening is frequently employed to reduce sludge volume handled in the dewatered/sludge disposal portion of a wastewater treatment facility. The objectives of gravity thickening are to produce a relatively solids free supernatant and to produce a product sludge that is as thick as possible without producing difficulties in subsequent ...

Sludge Thickening - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Sludge thickening is a process in which the solids concentration is increased and the total sludge volume is correspondingly decreased, but the sludge still behaves like a liquid instead of a solid. Thickening commonly produces sludge solids concentrations in the 3% to 5% range, whereas the point at which sludge begins to have the properties of ...

Sewage sludge dewatering & sludge thickening | Decanters

Excess sewage sludge that accumulates in the biological stages is thickened from 0.5 - 1% dry solids content to 6 - 8%. This reduces the sludge volume by 90 - 95%. The thickened sewage sludge can then be pumped into a digestion tower. Flottweg designed the C-series OSE decanter (OSE = optimum sludge thickening) specifically for sludge thickening.

SLUDGE HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS IN PIPED SYSTEMS

Were sewage sludge truly homogenous, thixotropic be-havior could probably best de-scribe its properties. Thixotropic fluids become less viscous as the rate of shear (or agitation) is increased, and also with the length of time they are agitated or sheared. In those instances where sludge exhibits these ten-dencies, you would find that

Sludge Thickening - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Sludge is introduced at a central feed well and the supernatant overflows a peripheral weir. The sludge is thickened by the action of a specially designed rake which also moves the thickened sludge to a central hopper, of included angle 60°, for intermittent discharge under hydrostatic head (Albertson, 1992).
