Bright Technologies’ Dewatering Equipment Helps Overcome Disposal Problem

Officials at a wastewater utility in Louisiana recently faced a sludge disposal problem and knew they couldn’t afford to pay for 5,000-gallon tankers to haul it to a land application site.

But by using dewatering equipment by Bright Technologies, the utility was able to make a stackable, dry-solids cake that allows it to haul 30,000 gallons worth of sludge in a single 30-cubic-yard container.

Since roll-off trucks are less expensive and more fuel-efficient than semi tankers, each load costs less than a single tanker would have otherwise.

One of the key equipment features the utility praised is the sludge-retention manifold of looping pipes, which gives the polymer contact time and gentle mixing before it’s introduced to the press. This is a unique feature to Bright Technologies skid-mounted belt press systems.

Belt filter press dewatering

Bright Technologies offers complete belt filter press dewatering systems that are skid or trailer mounted. The company designs and manufactures the skid equipment package for high throughput, low maintenance and superior cake solids.

The skid-mounted dewatering systems are designed with long-term value and ease of operation in mind. A stainless steel frame and roller construction are included as standard features. An Allen Bradley touch-screen and programmable logic controller integrate the press and support equipment to accomplish unattended operation and easy integration into SCADA systems.

Bright Technologies, a division of Sebright Products Inc., manufactures high-quality recycling equipment as well as equipment for dewatering and solidification of wet materials. The company also offers integrated recycling and solids waste-disposal solutions through Sebright Products including hydraulic compactors, cart dumpers and custom waste carts.
