Valmet Sludge Dewatering Optimizer - Valmet SDO
Valmet Sludge Dewatering Optimizer (Valmet SDO) allows wastewater treatment plants to improve the control of its sludge dewatering process. With Valmet SDO the operators can minimize the solids amount in the centrate, while maximizing the solids content in the dry cake. With Valmet SDO a great deal of savings in the polymer usage and energy spending can be obtained, while continuously providing real time data. The transportation costs are lower when the dry cake solids are higher, as well as needing less support fuel at the incineration plant.

Customer success stories
Optimized sludge dewatering saves costs
By investing in a Valmet Sludge Dewatering Optimizer (Valmet SDO) and online solids measurement units, Lappeenrannan Lämpövoima’s Toikansuo wastewater treatment plant has been able to boost sludge dewatering efficiency and lower costs in further sludge treatment, among others.
Valmet Sludge Dewatering Optimizer improves dewatering at Norske Skog
Norske Skog in Bruck an der Mur, Austria decided to purchase a Valmet Sludge Dewatering Optimizer (Valmet SDO) solution to stabilize the process and improve boiler operation. Integrated to the existing Valmet DNA distributed control system, the software package was accompanied by a Valmet Total Solids Measurement (Valmet TS) microwave transmitter to measure the total solids amount to sludge dewatering.
Valmet wastewater solutions save energy and chemicals
Tampere Water recently installed several Valmet total solids measurement devices and a sludge dewatering control package at its Viinikanlahti wastewater treatment plant in Tampere, Finland.
