The MOOS VacuDrain system

Dewaters up to 100 m³ sludge before emptying is required. A MOOS VacuDrain system from Simon Moos Maskinfabrik A/S produces results that can be seen directly on the bottom line!

Our specially developed MOOS VacuDrain system is a combined Jet-vac and unit for dewatering, treatment and handling of sludge which is able to reduce sludge water content by up to 90 percent. The VacuDrain system quickly and efficiently performs sludge suction and on-site separation of water and solid waste. Thereafter, the system directs the clean water back so that only the solid waste requires transportation. The unit can be operated easily by one person.

Less transportation
The result is that the system is able to dewater up to 100 m³ sludge before emptying is required, whereas traditional sludge suction units typically require emptying after 10m³. This means high capacity and greatly reduced transportation time; factors that not only increase our customers’ competitiveness, but also produce results which will displayed directly on the bottom line. 

The VacuDrain system can, of course, be combined with our AquaDrain dewatering catchment container for use in larger-scale tasks, such as for tank and basin emptying.

How does it actually work!?

How can adding a small amount of polymer get sludge to shed all the water? Well, it’s not magic, it’s just science 😊 This demo shows exactly what happens when the right amount of polymer is added to a batch of sludge.
