Sand drying beds in wastewater treatment

In Sludge Drying - A Practical Technology Background Sand drying beds are still the most common sludge dewatering process at small to moderate sized wastewater treatment facilities in the United States. When suitable land is available, the conventional sand bed can still offer low costs and energy savings but does require significant

    Sand drying beds, in particular, are the most widely used method of sludge dewatering in small treatment plants. The dewatering process in drying beds is based on drainage of leachate through sand and gravel supporting layers to the bottom of the bed, and evaporation of water from the surface, until a desired solids content (SC) is achieved

    For example, sludge drying beds and evaporation lagoons can be used not only to dewater a particular sludge, but also to dry it to a solids concentration of more than 50–60%. Depending on the particular device involved, dewatered sludge from a mechanical device might vary from a wet, almost flowable form, to a harder and more friable form ( 1

    Wastewater treatment - Wastewater treatment - Dewatering: Digested sewage sludge is usually dewatered before disposal. Dewatered sludge still contains a significant amount of water—often as much as 70 percent—but, even with that moisture content, sludge no longer behaves as a liquid and can be handled as a solid material.
