THICKENING AND DEWATERING: A RADICAL NEW DESIGN ON THE HORIZON
Abstract:Paul Cornay has created a new approach to centrifuge design. His prototype centrifuge was basically a bottle-type centrifuge made to operate continuously. This new design is believed to be a significant improvement on existing solid-bowl centrifuge designs. A full-scale centrifuge was designed and constructed by ERTH Technologies, Inc. and is currently being tested in Lyons, Colorado. Initial performance shows remarkable thickening capability on waste activated sludges with little to no polymer. Although work is still required to fully understand and develop this new centrifuge, there is now demonstrated success with this new radical design.
