Slurry separation

We deliver different kinds of slurry separators, like sloping sieves, vibrating sieves and screw presses, which are suitable for all kinds of slurry. We mostly focus on companies who can deposit a big part of the thin fraction, with a low phosphate percentage, in the neighborhood. We’ll decide what the best option is for the thick fraction, deposit it as stackable or as viscous. We’ll also decide if we need to use flocculent or if we should let the thin fraction settle after separating. The thinner the thin fraction, the faster and more effective the process of settling goes. By which the results from this process will come close to the results when using a flocculent. The choice for using a flocculent depends on the amount of available storage space and the destination of the thin fraction, among other things.

By using a flocculent, little solid parts are bound to each other (flocked) and the, by us developed, sloping sieve can then be used to separate these “flocks” from the fluid again. By using a flocculent, the level of phosphate in the thin fraction can be decreased with roughly 75-85% and the level of nitrogen with 20-50%. The remaining nitrogen in the thin fraction is almost completely present as a solution. When there is no flocculent used, the level of phosphate in the thick fraction can be increased with a maximum of 25%.
