Gravity Sludge Thickener™

Tonka Water, a U.S. Water Brand’s Gravity Sludge Thickener is used to condense solids and conserve water in the treatment process, often in lime softening applications. The Gravity Sludge Thickener can be used to recover additional water downstream to Tonka Water’s TriClear™ solids contact clarifier. This is a great addition to a solids removal treatment system, maximizing water recovery through an integrated solution. The Gravity Sludge Thickener can be used in conjunction with a filter press as part of a Zero Liquid Discharge System (ZLD).
