Sludge Weight Flow Rate Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use the simple wastewater calculator to calculate the sludge weight flow rate for the dewatering facility.

Weight Flow Rate of Sludge Feed Calculation

Volume flow rate of sludge feed [V] ( gal/min (L/s) ) :
Density of water [?] :
Specific gravity of sludge :
Percent solids expressed as a decimal :
Ws (lb/h (kg/h)):

Formula:

Ws = [ (V) × (?) × (s.g.) × (% solids) × (60 min/h) ] / 7.48 gal/ft3

where,
  • V = volume flow rate of sludge feed
  • s.g. = specific gravity of sludge
  • % solids = percent solids expressed as a decimal
  • ? = density of water, 62.4 lb/ft3 (994.6 kg/m3)
  • Ws = weight flow rate of sludge feed
