Biocrack Sludge Treatment & Reduction

The BioCrack Product Line

The BioCrack is a highly configurable device that can be worked into countless configurations to maximize
space savings and minimize retrofitting. The BioCrack can be installed on a frame as shown below or mounted
to an existing structure.

Typical Results
Adding a BioCrack affects each plant differently
depending on the properties of the sludge or slurry.
Average Results include:
•Increased Biogas yields up to 18%.
•Increased energy production.
•Enhanced digestion with less material
•Reduced process energy consumed by mixing.
• Shorter and more stable digestion cycles.
•Reduced dry solids content with better
dewatering up to 21%.
•Reduced polymer consumption up to 18%.

How the BioCrack Works

The sludge flows through a pipe system with an internal electrical high voltage field. The electric force creates a pulsing effect on the cells causing them to deform and finally rupture. As a result, the raw material inside the cell is exposed to the bacteria. The enhanced exposure produces more methane gas. The process also stimulates the bacteria which allows it to perform at higher efficiency.

Where to add a BioCrack?

The BioCrack is primarily designed to enhance the digestion process. It is typically placed between the digester and the heat exchanger or on a digester feed line.
Sludge is cycled through the BioCrack at predetermined intervals depending the characteristics of the sludge as well as the digester and related components.

Feeding the BioCrack

The BioCrack must be fed the sludge by means of a pump.
The sludge must also be mechanically conditioned to remove
or separate hard solids while also homogenizing the liquid. For
best results, we require a Vogelsang VX Rotary Lobe pump and
a RotaCut Inline Grinder to feed sludge into the BioCrack
System. This ensures the system is fed at the optimum flow
rate and damaging solids are reduced or removed from the liquid.

Components of a BioCrack Module

The BioCrack is made up of three major components. The Internal electrode disperses the electric field within the tube housing. The tube housing contains the electric field while also containing and feeding the liquid throughout the processes_
The electrodes are controlled either by individual panels or can be wired together into a common control panel. The panel can also be configured to control the RotaCut and Pump as well.
The BioCrack requires a feed pump and a RotaCut inline grinder. Solids must be reduced in order for the process to work effectively.
