Sludge management. Increasing demands on facilities. Skyrocketing maintenance costs. Do these issues sound familiar?  If so, please join us as we take you to our Houston facility and show you how to reduce sludge management costs, build for the future and reduce maintenance costs by looking at and optimizing the belt presses and centrifuges found in your wastewater treatment plant. 

It is estimated sludge management costs can be 50% or more of the total expenditures of a wastewater treatment plant. Any savings in this area can have a big impact on your overall operating budget. We’ll talk about ways you can reduce handling and shipping costs, maintenance expenditures, polymer usage and more.

We’ll also discuss the flexibility you need to upgrade for the future as well as the ability to save space when real estate is limited. Finally, we’ll review growing maintenance costs, how to get them in check and get you back to the business of managing your facility.
