Sludge dewatering | AQS Environmental Solutions

Mobile Dewatering

On our fleet we have two main types of sludge dewatering units:


Through the course of our growth and our commitment to utilising the best available technology we have developed a comprehensive fleet of specialised sludge dewatering units. These are our Maskoflex units.(see image below)

The Maskoflex mobile sludge dewatering system is developed to reduce the amount of waste taken from a site and thereby the expense of transporting and treating various sludge products is significantly reduced. The mobile dewatering system removes water from the sludge at the reception site and returns the reject water to the treatment plant. This process retains the natural micro organisms in the treatment plant.

The Maskoflex unit is suitable for dewatering water and waste water treatment plants, septic tanks and grease traps. The Maskoflex units have an onboard polymer dosing system and our trained operators can dewater any type of organic material that they encounter. The dewatered sludge remains on board the Maskoflex unit and the dewatered sludge is eventually delivered to a licensed waste disposal facility.

Mobile Centrifuge units

Mobile centrifuge units  – these are larger units designed for more long term dewatering projects such as lagoon dewatering, or general consistent sludge volume dewatering.  The machines that we operate are designed and built to the highest possible specification, and are supplied with chopper pumps, sludge pumps, generators and poly dosing systems ( liquid and solid ) if required.

Vacuum Excavation | AQS Environmental Solutions

The process of vacuum excavation essentially means that heavily compacted material such as sludge, filter media and other solid products such as cement, ask and dust can be excavated by suction. The main advantage with using this process is that the risk of damaging sub surface utilities with conventional excavation machinery is completely eliminated.
