Vacom Systems specializes in the design of mechanical vapor recompression evaporators. However, Vacom has redesigned its proprietary technology and applied it to the processing of waste activated sludge (WAS).
As an example: A 20 MGD Wastewater Treatment Plant may:
- Dispose of the sludge solids at a landfill after dewatering through a belt press.
- Use the Vacom system to create a Class A product that can dewater to approx. 50%
- Recover ammonia as a valuable biproduct.
