A successful day one is wrapped up at World Pork Expo in Des Moines. Many hog farmers have connected with us to learn about ways to improve lagoon management and reduce their operational costs. Truck washout application is also a topic in many conversations and the Trident Rotary Screen is proven to be an excellent system for this kind of solid-liquid separation.
The Trident multi-disc dewatering press MD202 is featured in a case study in the June issue of Pumper Magazine. Action Environmental of Fort Wayne, Indiana, specializes in the treatment of wastewater from industrial cleaning, machinery maintenance and remediation. Ed Black, president of Action Environmental, was looking for a solution that would allow further dewatering of the oily sludge produced during their main treatment process. For years, the company has been hauling the sludge to a landfill. Read the case study here.
Trident recently expanded their line of sludge dewatering equipment with a high capacity MD Press 454. The MD 454 is Trident’s largest dewatering press. A single unit can process 250,000 gpd with up to 4,000 lbs ds/min throughput. The press features four dewatering cylinders, each powered by a 1.5KW motor. The cylinders are strategically designed to allow efficient thickening and dewatering in a single operation. Maintenance requirements are drastically reduced due to its self-cleaning design. Trident recommends a 10,000 hr service interval.
