Reduce Sludge Volume
PONDUS™ Thermal Hydrolysis Process (THP)
PONDUS, a thermal/alkaline hydrolysis process, is designed for solids from 4% to 12% and uses a combination of caustic soda (NaOH) and low grade heated water (140 °F to 160 °F) to break down the cell walls.
No heat exchangers needed to cool sludge after hydrolysis to maintain an optimum digester temperature
No pressure vessel required
Saturated steam option for sludge above 7% total solids (TS) or with high viscosity
Compact, small footprint solution for all sized plants
Typical maintenance includes
