Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission ("PVSC") recently closed on a $22,214,031 loan with the NJ Water Bank to purchase and install a fifth centrifuge. Centrifugal thickening and dewatering of sewage sludge is a high speed process that uses the force from rapid rotation of a cylindrical bowl to separate wastewater solids from liquid to produce a non-liquid material referred to as "cake." Dewatering wastewater solids reduces the volume of residuals, improves operation, and reduces costs for subsequent storage, processing, transfer, end use, or disposal among other benefits. PVSC uses thickening centrifuges to thicken its primary and waste activated sludges before feeding it into the wet air oxidation process for stabilization.
