Wastewater Unit Process Inspection: Vacuum Filtration Mobile App
Vacuum filtration is the process of removing water and other fluid from sludge during wastewater treatment prior to removal.
How does it work?
These processes allow the sludge to dry before it is incinerated, used as fertilizer or disposed of as industrial waste products. Processes in wastewater treatment are heavily regulated to ensure that contaminants are not released into freshwater during wastewater discharge. The Wastewater Inspection Unit Process Vacuum Filtration app should be used during inspections to confirm the equipment is in working operation and preventive maintenance is conducted. The app will guide an inspector by examining the equipment at a facility, including flow distribution, amount of cake produced, chemical feed, sludge pumping, and efficiency of processes in general.
