Dewatering Containers – Flocculation

Dewatering Containers – Flocculation

Details

Cost-Effective, Low-Maintenance Dewatering Containers for Flocculation Applications

Durable Construction

Manufactured with heavy-duty carbon steel (or optional stainless steel) for long-lasting durability and performance.

Effective Flocculation Dewatering

Permanently mounted filter media covers the floors and walls, providing maximum surface area for effective dewatering with the addition of a flocculant.

Flexible Design

AquaCat™ dewatering containers are available in dump-hopper, front-loader, roll-off, trailer-mounted, or stand-mounted models in a variety of configurations and sizes.

Cost-Savings

Disposing of liquid sludge is more costly than solid waste. Our system efficiently removes water from sludge, resulting in reduced transportation and disposal costs.

Details

AquaCat™ dewatering containers provide an effective way to collect, dewater, transport, and dump sludges, slurries, and wet solids. They are designed to be used with light gravity sludge and slurries made up of very fine particles that require the addition of a flocculant for effective dewatering. The AquaCat™ comes equipped with permanently mounted filter media and is available in a variety of sizes and configurations customizable to your application-specific needs. Heavy-duty carbon-steel or stainless steel construction ensures long-lasting durability that can keep pace with your site operations.

The patent-pending technology behind AquaCat™ provides versatile performance in a wide range of dewatering applications. Uses include bio-solids dewatering, grease trap waste, septic tank sludge, alum waste, manufacturing waste, industrial sludge, mining waste, lagoon sludge, tailings pond sludge, and many other sludges and slurries.

How It Works

The AquaCat™ system works by separating solids from liquids through a flocculation and filtration process. Flocculation involves adding chemicals called flocculants to the wastewater, which cause the suspended solids to clump together and form larger particles called flocs. These flocs are then removed from the water in the dewatering container.

The AquaCat™ dewatering container has permanently mounted filter media on the floors and walls. The flocculated water is fed into the container, and the filter media allows water to pass through while capturing the flocs and other solids. As the water passes through the filter media, the trapped solids continue to accumulate and form a layer or cake while liquids exit through discharge ports.

Once the dewatering container is full or the cake layer reaches a certain thickness, the flow of water is stopped and the container is ready to be emptied. The dewatered cake is disposed of and the filter media can be reused in the next cycle.

About the AquaCat™ DH

The AquaCat DH is a self-dumping hopper designed to be handled by a standard fork truck. It typically has two 2” drain ports located on the bottom at opposite ends of the unit. Filter media comes in a choice of polypropylene or polyester and is available in micron sizes from 600 to 300 microns (30 mesh to 50 mesh). Filter support panels are made of expanded metal and perforated plates (other optional materials are available). The dump hopper can be split into two compartments using an optional double-wall filter element. The AquaCat DH is available in sizes 1-5 cubic yards.

Applications

Park Process’ flocculation dewatering systems effectively remove liquids from a variety of sludges, slurries, and wet solids, minimizing weight and volume and saving money on transportation and disposal costs.

Biosolids Dewatering

Dewatering containers effectively separate liquids from domestic sewage sludge to form biosolids, which can be treated for use as fertilizers and soil amendments.

Grease Trap Waste

The AquaCat can be used at grease trap disposal facilities in conjunction with a polymer mixing system to separate and filter grease and other solids from wastewater.

Septic Tank Sludge

Utilizing a dewatering process, septic pumpers can compliantly manage waste streams that cannot be economically disposed of or accepted at municipal wastewater treatment plants.

Alum Sludge

Dewatering containers can be used to efficiently dewater alum sludge produced during wastewater treatment and drinking water purification processes.

Manufacturing Waste

Dewatering is a sustainable and economical method of managing manufacturing waste, reducing waste volume, minimizing transportation costs, and facilitating wastewater recycling.

Industrial Sludge

Waters and solids used in industrial processes can produce slurries that may be contaminated with pollutants. Dewatering separates the solids and liquids to treat and properly dispose of them.

Lagoon Sludge

Excessive lagoon sludge accumulation can be costly to remove and dry. Our dewatering system assists lagoon dredging operations by speeding the cake-drying process and reducing disposal costs.

Tailings Pond Sludge

Dewatering pond tailings allows for dry storage of processed sludge, significantly reducing the environmental risks associated with excessive wastewater putting pressure on dams.

Fly Ash

Dewatering fly ash is essential to remediating environmental and constructibility concerns at coal ash pond sites.
