IFT - Internally-fed - rotary thickener

Sludge thickening, municpal primary
and secondary.

IFT Series of Internally-fed Rotary Drum Sludge
Thickeners have cylindrical
drums with progressive
series of screen elements that are mounted
horizontally on four shaft-mounted wheels and
supported in a structural
housing. The smallest
openings are used to screen the influent sludge,
followed by
coarser elements as the sludge thickens.
The screening element is either
woven mesh or
wedgewire. The screens are used to remove free
liquids from
a variety of sludges, including those
with appreciable amounts of microbial
Sludge containing 0.5%-3% solids can be thickened
to 5%-15%,
depending on the type of sludge.
