The Role of Sludge Thickeners in Wastewater Treatment

Sludge thickening is the initial stage in sludge treatment, aiming to separate its solid and liquid components. By effectively separating these components, sludge thickening sets the foundation for subsequent processes, such as dewatering. The dewatering process plays a vital role in reducing the water content in the sludge, making it more manageable and facilitating further […]

What is a Sludge Dewatering Centrifuge?

A sludge dewatering centrifuge is a machine used in the treatment of wastewater. It separates solids and liquids through centrifugal force, reducing sludge volume and increasing the solid content making it easier to store, transport, and dispose of the sludge. Advantages of a Sludge Dewatering Centrifuge How a Centrifuge Operates The sludge is fed into […]

A Centrifuge Can Separate Liquids From Solids—But Can it Purify Water?

Let’s find out. What does a centrifuge do? A centrifuge is a machine that uses centrifugal force at high speeds to separate different components based on their densities. A centrifuge separates solids and liquids quickly and efficiently, making it a valuable device for industries involved in food processing, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, oil production, and many other […]

What Are ESG Standards?

ESG standards are principles that help corporations focus on three factors: environment, social impact, and governance. Businesses and companies adopting ESG principles are expected to take measures to reduce waste, limit CO2 output, and lower pollution. They are also expected to promote inclusive and diverse employment practices throughout every level of their company’s workforce. The […]

HDD Mud Recycling – Particle Size and Effect

Understanding the nature of drilled solids to be encountered during a drill is critical for determining the optimal mud recycling system. Depending on the anticipated geology of an area, different means of mechanical separation are required. The source of the solids determines the particle sizes entrained in the drilling fluid slurry. These particles range in […]

HDD Drilling – The Rise of Mud Recycling / Solids Control

The process of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) inevitably produces a large amount of liquid waste. Drilling fluid returns from the drill head assembly a mixed slurry of water, chemical additives, and entrained spoils generated from within the borehole. This difficult waste challenge is best tackled by implementing an optimized mud recycling / solids control system […]

HDD Drilling – Why Drilling Mud Matters

The evolution horizontal directional drilling (“HDD”) can be traced back into the early 1900’s. In those days it became known within the oil industry that small deviations in vertical wellbores were happening due to dips and faults in the rock strata, increased weight on bit and the drill strings’ ability to bend. With the development […]

Why is ESG Important

ESG performance is important because it drives companies to focus on their impact on the environment, their people, and on managing the organization well. Each time a company puts ESG into practice, the bar is raised for others in the sector.  ESG, which stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance, has two facets:  A set of […]
