A KDS separator that offers a compact and cost-efficient alternative to conventional sludge dewatering technologies has been introduced in Australia.

 

KDS technology is used for thickening of dissolved air flotation (DAF) sludge and can achieve solids capture of 97 per cent thickened sludge at a dryness of 17 per cent. Waste activated sludge dryness levels achieved typically range from 15-18 per cent dryness.

 

The solution, which has been successfully applied worldwide, makes DAF waste handling safer, according to its exclusive distributor CST Wastewater Solutions.

 

It does this by eliminating the OH&S hazards associated with damper and heavier output from treatment plants.

 

The KDS Multidisc Roller system requires no washwater, while capturing 90-99 per cent of solids.

 

It has been built using Japanese technology and engineered in Australasia to overcome the limitations of technologies such as screw presses, belt presses and centrifuges typically employed in small-to-medium applications.
