Sustainable and cost-efficient separation solutions for your sediment

Sediment originating from your production process or water purification system may not always be the first thing on your mind, but it can seriously disrupt your primary process, resulting in high costs.  To avoid this, a customised separation solution is needed.

Full service provider

You can subcontract all aspects of the separation of your lagoon or tank sediment. Indaver is the no. 1 expert, offering a total solution for the treatment of your residues.  Your dregs are separated from water, sand, dredge spoil and tissue using permanent systems or mobile units.  By separating the residues on your site, we substantially reduce the volume to be transported away.  This saves you transport and treatment costs. Our size, capacity and in-house expertise ensure that we can step in rapidly.

Innovative technology, dedicated staff and the correct chemical conditioning guarantee optimal separation services. 

Thorough sample analysis in our own laboratory

In order to offer you a customised solution, we map out your process thoroughly in advance, including sample-taking.  In our own laboratory, we subject your sediment samples to a comprehensive test programme in order to determine the best formula and separation technique.  To improve the separation and dewatering efficiency, additives such as ‘INDAFLOC’, from our own line of flocculants, may be used.  We translate test results for you into a specific, practical solution, after which we can get to work on your site.

The best solution for your sediment

Indaver possesses all available separation and dewatering techniques and associated equipment to implement your projects successfully.

TOTAL & FLEX: Mobile solutions customized to fit your needs

With our mobile fleet and its innovative technologies, we can dewater the sediment on your site.  If needed, our experienced and trained operators can run the separation installation and ensure maximum efficiency. Depending on the composition of the sediment, various separation and dewatering technologies are possible. 

BOOST: a permanent solution for your sediment

As well as mobile solutions, Indaver offers Built-Own-Operate (BOO) separation technologies and solutions for separating the residue on your site.  In close consultation and with full transparency, we design and build a customised system in line with your budget.  Our own maintenance department and back-up systems guarantee you maximum operational reliability.  Indaver takes care of everything for you thanks to guaranteed continuous separation, dewatering, including operation and maintenance. 

24/7 call-out service

The last thing industrial companies or water boards want is their production coming to a halt or causing environmental incidents as a result of problems with the processing of sludge or waste water.  Indaver has a 24/7 call-out service to help here.  With our mobile units, we can take over the separation of your dregs at short notice. 

European growth

Indaver's separation technologies business unit provides its services throughout Europe and is market leader in the Benelux.  With over 30 years’ experience, Indaver has built up a large portfolio of satisfied customers. We have implemented successful sediment separation projects for a wide variety of industries such as the chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, steel, construction and food industries and water boards.  And we always do so with the closest attention to safety and the environment. 

In the Netherlands, we designed and built a sediment separation and dewatering facility at Tata Steel in IJmuiden that treats dregs originating from a gas washing process.  Tata Steel re-uses the compressed sediment cake in its production process.

For a company in the food industry, we designed and built a system on site that removes the sulphur from the sediment cake so that the cake can be re-used by the fertiliser industry.

Indaver works in this field for:

  • district water boards and drinking water companies
  • industries such as the chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, construction, steel and waste treatment industries.
