Live Bottom Screws: Dewatered Biosolids

The dewatered material is retrieved from storage by utilizing a hydraulically driven sliding frame mechanism which covers the entire bottom of a silo. The layers of material are discharged in the order in which they were introduced into the silo through openings located along the silo bottom. The material is then transported via a screw conveyor to discharge points located outside the silo for final truck loading or other downstream processes.
