SludgeJudgeDigester Thickerer

The thickener is used to seperated the sludge from the clean water. Essentually a clarifier, the sludge settles to the bottom of the Thickener and is then pumped to the Digester. As the sludge settles it creates a thick layer (blanket) on the bottom of the thickener. Using a Sludge Judge, you can measure the depth of the blanket layer and adjust the pump to maintain the blanket depth that works best to send thickened sludge to the Digester.
