Silt & Sludge Removal

The removal of silt and sludge is essential to prevent equipment damage and ensure the continued efficiency of various processes.

Disposing of waste from sites can be challenging, as not only does the waste often build up in significant quantities, but transporting it away can also incur substantial costs. If not addressed, materials can lead to blockages in drainage systems and storage tanks over periods of time.

Sludge accumulation can arise from a variety of materials. Frequently, the presence of sludge and silt can be attributed to construction activities, the need for sludge removal in aging tanks, and the typical accumulation in household tanks and traps.

Our solutions for silt and sludge enable you to minimize your industrial waste. Whilst sludge possesses a distinctive consistency, we can separate solid elements from liquid. By filtering liquid waste from solid waste, the volume of waste requiring disposal is instantly diminished. 

This is due to the fact that only the solid waste needs to be removed, allowing the business to reuse the liquid waste.

On Site Silt Sludge Treatment

D-Max Mobile Screening Unit

D:MAX technology ensures maximum solids removal and dewatering of waste across a variety of troublesome waste streams.

The trailer mounted screening unit removes grit, rag and other solids from waste water and works to such a high specification resulting in waste that can be taken away and recycled.

Upon arrival to site, the D:MAX can be operational in around 1 hour, suitable for removing waste and sludge from digester tanks, lagoons or ponds.

Other uses can include being utilized as a mobile dewatering system for tank-cleaning, silt management, clearing wet wells, storm tanks and pumping stations.

D:Max operates by adding water to the waste, vibrating it, screens and separates it before returning the water to the treatment process whilst depositing the separated material into skips.

One of the main advantages of the D:Max is that it can process up to 120m3 per hour, more than other separation technologies such as centrifuges and filter presses.
