How to reduce the life cycle cost of your decanter

The three main factors that make up the majority of the operational expenses for wastewater decanters are:

  • Sludge transportation and disposal costs
  • Polymer costs
  • Energy costs

For example, sludge transportation and disposal can represent up to 80% of the life cycle cost of your decanter. The diagram below shows your cost increases with a 1% (nominal) drop in cake dryness (for a large capacity decanter).
