    Plant Uses Sludge Thickening Centrifuge to Eliminate 50% Transportation Surcharge

    CaseStudy-UofFlorida-Gainesville-FL-THK200

    Location: University of Florida  |  Gainesville, Florida
    Plant Size: 3.1 MGD
    Installation: 2018 (1) THK200 Sludge Thickener

    OPERATING DATA
    • Feed @ 1.1% TS
    • 100 gpm
    • 97% capture
    • No polymer
    • 0.1 kW/gpm
    • 3.8-4.2% TS TWAS

    PROBLEM

    University of Florida’s Water Reclamation Facility gravity thickened WAS to 2% TS and then trucked the TWAS off-site. The plant could not exceed 4.5% TS TWAS or a 50% transportation surcharge was added to the transportation fees. The Centrisys THK reliably doubled the TWAS concentration.

    RESULTS

    • TWAS concentration doubled from 2% to 4%; resulted in half the truckload amounts
      • Eliminated the 50% transportation surcharge
    • Maintained a narrow 3.8-4.2% TS TWAS
      • Adjustable nozzles and the hydro-pneumatic air adjustment controls allowed consistent output even with seasonal fluctuation
    • No polymer used
      • Eliminated need for an installed dosing system
      • Minimal operator supervision
    • High recovery reduced the downstream of the sand filters
