Sludge and slurries can easily be transferred to the AZ Dewatering Self-Dumping Hopper for instant solids separation and dewatering by gravity drainage. Solids/liquid separation can be accelerated utilizing an air diaphragm pump. The air diaphragm pump can be connected to the hopper drainage port located below the safety latch. A strong vacuum is generated as the sludge level covers the drainage port resulting in rapid dewatering. The air diaphragm pump serves two purposes;

  1. Accelerates the separation and dewatering process and
  2. Delivers the clean liquid to a desired disposal location. Dewatered sludge is mobilized with a fork lift truck for dumping in a large roll-off container, designated dumping station or land farm location.
