solidBLOX™ SiC Sludge Thickening
The solidBLOX process is a controlled and optimised aerobic process that integrates a silicon carbide (SiC) membranes for sludge thickening that is ideal for plants with tight nutrient limits. This process is designed to meet Class B solids in a smaller footprint and with less energy.
The solidBLOX process utilises SiC membranes for sludge thickening up to 3 percent solids, which significantly reduces aerobic digestion volume and footprint by up to three times compared to those of conventional systems while consuming 25 percent less energy.
SolidBLOX SiC Sludge Thickening is a membrane system that does not require polymers to thicken waste activated sludge and can be operated with the flexibility of a continuous wasting schedule.
This process can also be retrofitted into existing tanks which can provide substantial savings for capital and installation project costs by not having to build additional or minimal infrastructure.
SolidBLOX also has the unique and innovative feature of producing reuse quality permeate, which contains minimal amounts of total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) which compliments a BNR process.
