Drying pans are used during wastewater treatment (WWT) to store, stabilise and dry residual solids. The pans are filled with sludge that dries via exposure to sunshine and wind. We propose that drying pans be operated based on dry stacking principles, a technique with proven success in the mineral processing industry. The implementation of the dry stacking technique requires very little in the way of additional engineering beyond a conventional drying pan. By applying the sludge in thin layers… CONTINUE READING
