Volume of Digested Sludge Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use the simple aerobic digester calculator tool to calculate the digested sludge volume for your wastewater problems.

Digested Sludge Volume Calculation

Weight of sludge [Ws] (lb) (kg) :
Density of water [?] (62.4 lb/ft3) (994.6 kg/m3) :
Specific gravity of digested sludge [s.g.] (assume s.g. = 1.03) :
Percent solids expressed as a decimal (%) :
Sludge volume [V] (ft3) (m3) :

Formula:

V = (Ws) / ((?) × (s.g.) × (% solids))

where,
  • Ws = weight of sludge
  • ? = density of water
  • s.g. = specific gravity of digested sludge
  • % solids = percent solids expressed as a decimal
  • V = sludge volume
