HySludge® – Modular Sludge Systems for Decentralised Treatment Plants

March 14, 2024

Across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific there are hundreds of packaged treatment and decentralised plants that provide sewage treatment for mining operations, camps, communities, towns, villages and resorts.

Managing sludge from these treatment plants presents some challenges – the main being the limited disposal options and the high cost of transporting liquid sludge. HySludge® is a containerised sludge thickening or dewatering system that can process liquid sludge to reduce offsite disposal costs.

  • Options for thickening or dewatering
  • Plug and Play – factory assembly 
  • Easy installation and integration onsite
  • Automatic operation


  • Thickening option – 3 to 20 kL/h
  • Dewatering option – 1 to 6 kL/h

HySludge® is a containerised system that uses mechanical thickening or dewatering technologies to reduce liquid sludge volumes. Typically, a HUBER SDISC or QPRESS is used, although options for other technologies are available depending on the volume.

The system includes feed pumping, polymer makeup and dosing, screw outloading unit, control system and is delivered to site ready for commissioning. All wiring and piping are completed prior to dispatch together with a comprehensive Factory Acceptance Test (FAT).
