Dewatering is an industrial process that is used for eradicating water from the solid material. It is also used to remove soil by the means of wet classification. Filtration, centrifugation, or similar solid-liquid separation procedure such as removal of residual liquid from a filter cake by a filter press are some tat falls under the process of dewatering. Sludge dewatering is to remove water content from sludge by the process of dewatering such as filtration, centrifugation, and evaporation in order to reduce the costs of transportation and disposal, or to enhance the suitability for composting.
Some of the major technologies that are being used widely for the process of sludge dewatering include centrifuges, screw press, belt filter press, and rotator disc press. Sludge treatment and strict disposal rules and regulations, industrialization, urbanization, and tremendous rise in the production of sludge owing to the high increase in population are some of the major reasons that are expected to boost the demand for sludge dewatering market in the next few years across the globe.
Some of the technological advancements including use of rotator disc press and screw press for the purpose of sludge dewatering, helps in reducing the overall cost of the process as well as it also increases the dry cake output. Enhanced water purification, improved sludge management, low sludge transportation cost, decrease in hazardous gases, and energy management are the major advantages that are expected to help in deployment of sludge dewatering equipment and in overall growth of the global sludge dewatering equipment market.
Europe has been witnessing high growth in the sludge dewatering equipment market, especially in the western and eastern parts of the region. The high growth in this region is due to increase the production of sludge and developing wastewater treatment technology. Apart from Europe, North America has also observed high growth in sludge production in recent years, thanks to the rising number of wastewater management units and escalating population. Industrialization and urbanization have also contributed tremendously in boosting the demand for sludge dewatering equipment for the purpose of wastewater and sewage treatment in Asia Pacific. Apart from these regions, developing nations such as South Africa and Brazil are considered as potential markets for the next few years.
