Safe and Optimized Performance
As a gravimetric selection technology, inDENSE retains denser biomass while the lighter fraction of the mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) flows out as waste activated sludge (WAS). Promoting higher densities improves sludge settling characteristics, preventing the loss of biomass and other treatment disruptions — especially during wet and cold weather events.
An Optimized Design
Promoting faster settling particles, optimized process configurations and physical selective forces encourage densified sludge formation. Hydrocyclones force denser flocs and solids to the cyclone walls and down through the underflow to be recycled, while lighter solids move toward the cyclone center and are pushed upwards through the overflow to be wasted.
By implementing external mechanisms for selective sludge wasting and optimized biological process configuration, facilities can streamline their operations at the lowest capital cost.
