WATROPUR based in Switzerland manufactures the WATROMAT® sludge dryer. The equipment works on the principle that if you pass dry air through a moist or wet cake it will remove moisture. The resulting moist air can then be dryed again by same principle that air conditioning equipment uses to remove humidity from the air in a building.
Sludge dryers are available from small batch systems all the way up to large continuous belt systems capable of removing of up to 24,000 kg of water in 24 hours in a single unit. The equipment is easy to maintain and operate. Below are some examples of small and large WATROMAT systems available from WATROPUR.
