Wastewater from the textile and leather industry is renowned for its high pollution levels. It contains an array of organic impurities, including remnants of flesh, wool, blood, and dung, as well as decomposition products of proteins and fats. Additionally, it contains surfactants and a multitude of mineral components, some of which are toxic and carcinogenic. The textile industry contributes significantly to this pollution, as it employs a plethora of dyes and chemical components daily, making their removal challenging due to their complex organic structures. Wastewater from textile processes contains fats, waxes, bleaches, dextrins, dyes, and detergents, arising from steps such as washing, bleaching, fermenting, softening, dyeing, and more.

Focus on Sludge Dewatering:

In the context of wastewater treatment for textile and leather facilities, the emphasis on sludge dewatering is paramount. By effectively reducing sludge volume, the process enhances waste management, making it more cost-effective and environmentally responsible.

Typically high demand of fresh water in the industries and subsequent high flow rate of wastewater leads to generation of a huge amount of sludge. Treatment of the leather sludge requires accurate flocculant selection; the sludge can be highly corrosive so requires application of appropriate materials and protection of applied equipment; high concentrations of inorganic matter and solids determine the technologies which can be used for dewatering. 

Treatment of textile sludge may require its advanced chemical conditioning; the same as for leather industry, the sludge can be highly corrosive.

In addressing the complexities of sludge treatment, Esmil Group offers a range of advanced sludge dewatering equipment that proves instrumental in optimizing waste management within these sectors.

Esmil Group’s Sludge Dewatering Equipment for Textile and Leather Industries:

  • Multi-Disk Screw Press MDQ: Our MDQ system efficiently tackles the challenge of sludge dewatering by providing high corrosive protection and combining it with advanced chemical conditioning process to meet requirements for sludge treatment in textile and leather industries.
  • Multi-Roller Disk Press JD: Designed to meet the high-throughput demands of the textile and leather industry, the JD Disc Press excels in separating solids from liquids, even those containing high inorganic load and abrasive materials. High quality of stainless steel (AISI 316/316L grade) used for its fabrication protects it from high chlorides, sulphates and sulphides content which can be met in leather industry.
  • Multi-Disk Sludge Thickener MDQ-T: The MDQ-T Sludge Thickener plays a crucial role as a preliminary treatment step. It effectively thickens sludge, reducing volume and streamlining downstream processes for more cost-effective disposal providing high corrosion resistance at the same time.
  • Containerized Unit Module-D: Our Module-D offers adaptability and convenience, making it an ideal choice for handling wastewater treatment in textile and leather processes. Its modular design simplifies implementation, catering to a variety of treatment requirements.
