What is the Difference Between Alum, Dry Cake, and Leachate Sludge Hauling?
Kaiser-Battistone provides a wide variety of common waste services like septic pumping and drain cleaning, but we also take care of the less conventional services. This includes sludge hauling, where we go and remove waste byproducts and properly dispose of them. For those of you unfamiliar with this service, read on to learn about 3 types of sludge hauling performed by the Kaiser-Battistone team.
Alum Sludge Hauling
Alum Sludge is a by-product of water treatment plants, created during the filtration process. It’s usually kept in large alum lagoons or is spread on drying beds. To remove alum sludge, we use high-tech lagoon pumps that can handle up to 500,000 gallons. We also have a cable dredge capable of handling million-gallon projects.
Dry Cake Sludge Hauling
You don’t want to eat this cake! Dry cake sludge is basically waste from sewer plants that has had all the water and fluid extracted from it. Because of its tendency to be hard and sticky, it’s difficult to remove and must be disposed of properly. Kaiser-Battistone has the equipment and skills needed to get the job done, and thanks to our relationships with landfills and beneficial reuse facilities, we have plenty of disposal options.
Leachate is the by-product produced at landfills, and like other sludge, it must be transported and disposed of appropriately. Not only do we handle the hauling service, we also keep methane collection lines beneath the landfill working correctly. With state-of-the-art jetting and camera equipment, we’re prepared for all aspects of leachate removal.
