Sludge Dewatering Chemicals

Why Sludge Dewatering Matters

Sludge, the byproduct of wastewater treatment, poses a significant challenge for industry and municipalities. Efficient sludge management is crucial for meeting environmental regulations, reducing disposal costs and promoting sustainability. Dewatering, the process of removing water from solids suspended in a sludge, is a key step in sludge management, and the right chemical treatments make all the difference.

Dewatering Chemical Treatments

At Water Treatment Services, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all. Our team of water treatment experts has developed a suite of chemical treatments tailored to address the needs of diverse sludge dewatering applications. Whether you’re dealing with industrial sludge or municipal wastewater residuals, our dewatering aids (chemicals) are designed to optimise dewatering efficiency while minimising environmental impact.

Innovative Polymers

Our range of polymers is engineered to enhance flocculation and improve solid-liquid separation, facilitating easier dewatering.

High molecular weight ensures effective bridging and binding of sludge particles, resulting in improved settling and filtration.

pH Control Agents

Maintaining the optimal pH range is critical for dewatering chemicals. Our pH control agents ensure that your sludge remains in the ideal range for maximum efficiency.

Precise pH control also prevents corrosion in dewatering equipment, extending its lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.


Tailored coagulant formulations enhance the aggregation of sludge particles, promoting rapid settling and improved water release.

Our coagulants are designed to be effective across a wide range of sludge types, ensuring versatility in application.

Dewatering Aids

Specially formulated dewatering aids improve the drainage properties of sludge, resulting in faster and more efficient dewatering processes.

Reduced moisture content in the dewatered sludge translates to lower transportation and disposal costs.

Waste Water

Biodegradable Formulations

We prioritise sustainability in our formulations. Our dewatering aids (chemicals) are developed with a focus on biodegradability, minimising the environmental impact of the dewatering process.

Eco-friendly options are available without compromising on performance, aligning with modern environmental standards.
