This sludge drying plant receives trucked in sludge from surrounding WWTPs for downstream processing.
Sludge is depositied in a livebottom sludge receival bunker and transported vertically to the top of two cylindrical silos each 200m3 capacity. Sludge is then metered into the drier by a sliding frame system. The sludge is of varying consistency and quality from quite dry to sloppy, but this is able to be transferred easily by the SPIRAC spiral conveying system.
This plant has been successfully operational since 2000.
