If you have slurry that needs dewatering, then slurry bags are a must-have product. Small stone fabrication shops that utilize a clarifier to dewater their sludge typically have a sludge skid with a sludge bag underneath the clarifier. The sludge bag helps rid the sludge of any excess water.



The sludge skid is designed to hold the slurry bags. At Full Circle Water, it is manufactured to last, so it is galvanized and dipped. The corners of the slurry bag clip onto the sludge skid. Once dirty slurry water passes through the clarifier, remaining sludge drops into the slurry bag where the sludge can dry out even further. The clarifier always dumps a little bit of water with its sludge. A removable top rack allows for efficient disposal of the sludge bags. The skids are easy to forklift for easy disposal.


Full Circle Water sludge slurry bags are designed to assist with the final steps of the dewatering process. The slurry bags are carefully designed so that they do not let out too much water or too little water. Much like a tea bag, the bags are porous, meaning that they are covered in miniscule holes. The spacing in the weave is precise; there is a small gap so that water can move through effectively. At the same time, the bag must be strong enough to withstand the weight of the sludge. Here at Full Circle Water, we have spent years perfecting our slurry bag to offer our customers the best solution. The propylene bags have the perfect weave, allowing them to weep.
