Dewatering of organic or mineral sludge’s into a manageable solid mass can be achieved in a variety of ways. Maxitool Dredging has considerable experience in this field and offer geo-fabric dewatering tubes as a cost effective means of retrieving your solids.
A constant slurry mixture flow through flocculent screening process which provides optimal separation and dose rates, achieving dewatered solids density up to 70%.
Filtrates with minimal solids are recovered through the process and can be reused in the process therefore minimising the requirements of additional make up water.
We use our specially designed cutter suction dredge for use in HDPE lined dams. The dredge has variable speed pump therefore allowing us to control the rate of feed to geo bags. We can achieve a dewatering rate of between 20 and 80 m3 per hour.
