Sludge recovery and de-watering projects

Z-Filter operates a fleet of portable mini-dredge pontoons and Z-Filters skids. From recovery of the sludge right through to discharge of the de-watered cake and filtrate, our services division can supply all components required to undertake specific projects or ongoing service contracts. Our offering includes highly skilled staff, specialised equipment, project management and comprehensive safety systems. We also offer a pre-engagement testing and feasibility evaluation service to ensure a fully tailored solution that meets or exceeds our client’s requirements.

Technical and Testing Services

Our highly capable and qualified staff are available to analyse, operate and optimise your filtration equipment or requirement. We are available to attend your site and get a thorough understanding of your sludge management requirement followed by testing services and further consultation.
