SLUDGE MIXING – Sludge Blending requires agitation to
ensure a homogeneous mixture is obtained from various
sludge sources.

EQUALIZATION / NEUTRALIZATION – Flow Equalization is the
damping of flow rate and concentration variations so that a
constant or near constant stream is achieved to the plant.
Neutralization is the process of blending acid or caustic into
the waste stream to adjust the pH level of the basin.
• Equalization mixers are used to blend influents from
  various sources to provide a uniform consistency.
• Neutralization mixers ensure proper pH levels are achieved                                         Dynamic
