Water and wastewater treatment facilities have made good use of this type of conveyor for transporting dewatered biosolids, sludge, screenings or grit. A properly designed conveyance system with the ability to handle the special characteristics of sludge is critical to the effective transport of material through the process. Dewatered sludge cake can consist of wastewater plant biological sludge from the treatment of municipal wastewater, or dewatered water treatment plant sludge.
The JMS Bio-SCREW (Screw Conveyor) is easily adapted to congested locations for horizontal, inclined, or vertical conveyance. The streamlined design offers several advantages for environmental applications, including the total enclosure of materials (for odor and spillage control) and the movement of various materials from wet to dry, slow-moving to free-flowing.
