Upon an agreed start date we deployed our team of tank cleaning experts with one of our mobile centrifuge systems. Using high pressure jetters from the access platform, the sludge was liquefied sufficiently to allow our hydraulically-operated reversible Molex pump to transfer the sludge out and into one of our portable sludge containers where it would be kept agitated.
From here it was dosed with polymer and fed into one of our portable centrifuge systems. This de-watered the sludge into a solid ‘cake’ which meant the volume taken off-site and vehicle movements were kept to a minimum. The use of tankers was also eliminated.
The clean water was fed back into the works inlet and the ‘cake’ was transferred into bulk tippers, where it was removed to a treatment plant. The whole project was carried out well within the time allowed and under budget.
