Sludge Holding Tanks

Sludge holding tanks provide storage of biosolids and can serve as a location for thickening before further processing or disposal. Mixing in sludge holding tanks provides uniform sludge concentration, prevents sludge stratification, and ensures a homogeneous feed to dewatering equipment.

A BioMix Compressed Gas Mixing System provides non-clog performance, eliminates in-tank maintenance, and allows mixing intensity to be adjusted based on sludge concentration and depth. Additionally, BioMix uses a fraction of the energy needed to mix the tank contents versus mechanical mixers, jet or pump mixing systems, or diffused aeration.

Additionally, an AquaBlend Potable Water Mixing System provides energy-efficient, low-maintenance mixing in water treatment plant sludge tanks to maintain homogeneity.

Advantages

Energy Efficiency
  • Significant reduction in operating power
Straightforward Operation
  • Non-clogging, self-cleaning components in tank
  • No mechanical or electrical components in the sludge
  • Zero wall penetrations below the water line, eliminating the risk of leaking
Process Optimization
  • Mixing suitable for concentrations up to 8% solids
  • Integration with any tank geometry or configuration
  • Variable mixing intensity based on operating depth
Unparalleled Flexibility
  • Guaranteed uniform mixing with onsite performance testing
  • Circular header that conforms to the slope of the floor, eliminating “dead spots”
  • No low water level limitations — able to mix at any depth
