aerobic digester sludge thickening

Aerobic waste sludge digester-thickener orbital

Current practice for aerobic digestion is to first transport the waste sludge generated in a secondary activated sludge system into a separate adjacent thickening tank of the gravity or other type and then transport the thickened sludge to a separate aerated digester for 10-30 days. Biological activity in the tank digests the sludge over that time.

Technological Improvements for the Aerobic

2020-12-17 · Activated sludge thickening is a common method for reducing the volume in aerobic digesters.6 However, the thickened activated sludge has a very high oxygen uptake rate in the first 10 days of digestion (up to 2 lbs. O2/lb. VSS).3 The oxygen requirement for the primary plus waste activated sludge is approximately nine times that of waste

Controlled Aerobic Digestion of Thickened Sludge

2020-12-12 · When thickening waste activated sludges mechanically, it is usually possible to achieve greater than 7% to 8% solids. However, if this is fed continuously to the aerobic digester, then it is likely that any aeration system will have difficulty meeting the

Aerobic digestion of thickened activated sludge:

1983-1-1 · The percentage reduction of VSS showed that sludge thickening improved process efficiency; high efficiencies were reached after long aeration periods. TSS, rather than VSS or DVSS, was the parameter that best fitted the proposed kinetic model of the behaviour of the aerobic digester.

Sludge Thickening an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Thickening reduces the volume of sludge by removing significant amount of water. For example, sludge originally at 1% solids, if thickened to 5% solids, has been reduced in volume by approximately 80%. This increases the SRT in a subsequent digester by a factor of 5 relative to digestion without thickening (if it

MEMBRANE THICKENING AEROBIC DIGESTION

thickening methods is very common in aerobic digestion systems, however thickening performance can fluctuate greatly and can have high disposal costs especially without sludge dewatering. Sludge concentrations of WAS in aerobic digestion operations can range from 0.8% to 2.5% but typically 1.3% solids concentration (Burton and Tchobanoglous, 1991).
