Our customers’ process requirements drive the selection process of ANDRITZ technologies. Therefore we offer a wide range of equipment to assure the optimum choice for your needs – screens, filters, presses, decanter centrifuges, thickeners, drying systems, and thermal utilization equipment. ANDRITZ has the ability to test options in our pilot facility to help you develop and tailor the right solution.

Once installed, ANDRITZ equipment comes with the support of a strong global service network for the wastewater and sludge processing industries.

Specifically for the pulp & paper industry, the ANDRITZ sludge dewatering portfolio covers machines for all fibrous and biological sludges. Different types of sludges have different dewatering potential. We offer the services of our pilot plant in Graz, Austria to test and evaluate the dewatering characteristics of your specific sludge. Or, a test-run can be arranged at your mill, utilizing the ANDRITZ mobile container test unit.

Typical sludge sources include: raw water treatment plants, recycled fiber (OCC and DIP) mills, DAF and sedimentation processes, mechanical pulp (TMP and BCTMP) mills, chemical processes, and biological water treatment plants.

Sludge from industrial waste water treatment plants can be an effective source of biosolids. Through innovative mechanical dewatering and thermal drying processes, sludges can be converted into biosolids and used as valuable alternative fuel. ANDRITZ offers a broad range of advanced technologies for the purpose of biosolids drying, enabling our customers to reach ambitious economic and environmental targets.

Our global experience means we can provide solutions quickly and efficiently. Best of all, we bring the power of our services and products right to your mill, no matter where it is located in the world.
