Sludge Processing, Dewatering and Wastewater Treatment

Belt Filter Presses & Transfer Station

Spectraserv's waste management services are not limited to just trucking, barging, mobile dewatering, and site clean-outs. At its facility in Kearny, N.J., Spectraserv operates two belt filter presses, a bioscrubber, and a transfer station under the New Jersey Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NJPDES) permit number NJ0079570 as regulated by the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).

Liquid residuals are pumped into the five residual storage tanks. From these tanks, the residuals are pumped into the the belt filter press building where operators add water and polymer at a variable dosing rate, and then process the sludge through one of the two belt filter presses. The dewatered sludge product is transported on a conveyor to a container, which is then transported to an approved off-site disposal location.

Spectraserv's site also handles hundreds of tons of grit and screenings per month. Both the grit and screenings and dewatered municipal sludge brought to Spectaserv's facility are transported to Spectraserv's transfer station - one of the largest residuals transfer stations in New Jersey. Trucks are loaded with the residuals at this location, and then transported to off-site disposal locations all over the United States.

If you have a vacuum truck or jet vac with grit and residual water, Spectraserv is an optimal location for clean outs, transportation, treatment and disposal. If you have residual dewatered sludge from a municipal plant and need a nearby location for disposal, Spectraserv is right for you. All sludge that is accepted by Spectraserv must first be approved by our staff engineers. Call us today!
