SRT Solar Dryer Uses The Sun To Reliably Produce Biosolids


A water reclamation facility needed to improve their biosolids handling process in their planned expansion. The solution needed to reduce sludge volume, produce reusable material, be simple to maintain, and provide cost effective operation. In the evaluation of drying processes they considered:

  • Composting
  • Thermal Drying
  • Solar Drying

The Huber Technology SRT Solar Dryer was determined to be a technology fit to achieve Tooele’s goals of simple and cost effective volume reduction while producing a reusable biosolid product. The linear feed design of the SRT Solar Dryer provided the ability to feed dewatered sludge to the dryer as it was produced.
