When flocculated feed is fed onto the gravity drainage deck, most of the free water in the sludge simply drains through the screen while thickened sludge is retained on the moving screen.
Our gravity drainage decks are fitted with wear resistant ploughs to turn the sludge over in order to maximise the release of free water.
