Centrifuge sludge dewatering is a process used to separate solids from liquids. It involves using a centrifugal force that causes the solids to settle on the inner wall of a rotating cylinder, leaving the water or liquid in the centre.
The sludge is fed into the centrifuge through a feed tube, where it is then subjected to high gravitational force due to the high-speed rotation of the cylinder which is called a bowl. As the centrifuge spins, the dense sludge particles are forced to the inner wall of the bowl, while the liquid or water remains near the centre.
A rotating screw within the centrifuge then pushes the dewatered sludge towards the discharge end of the bowl. The separated water or liquid is typically discharged through an outlet at the opposite end of the bowl.
The dewatered sludge is then collected and further processed or disposed of according to industry standards.
Overall, the centrifuge sludge dewatering process is a cost effective and efficient way to separate solids from liquids, making it a widely used method in various industries.
