Sludge Dewatering, WEFTEC and the Industrial Internet of Wisdom

WEFTEC should be bigger and better than ever this year and maybe even exceed the record attendance in Chicago last year. Here are the details.

91st Annual Technical Exhibition & Conference
Conference: September 29 - October 3
Exhibition: October 1 - 3
Core Hours: 8:30 am - 5:00 pm daily
New Orleans Morial Convention Center


At the 2013 WEFTEC McIlvaine prepared a Global Decisions Positioning Guide (GDPS) informing visitors all the WEFTEC resources with insights on sludge dewatering. Here is that link.

This guide provided locations and times of relevant speeches as well as booth location of exhibitors who could impact sludge dryness. It starts with simple adjustments to dewatering equipment, change in quantity and type of treatment chemicals, as well as monitoring, automation and addition of new dewatering devices.

This is all part of the Industrial Internet of Wisdom which is a McIlvaine initiative to connect people and knowledge. One of the services included is Municipal Wastewater Decisions.

We will be preparing a new guide form the 2018 show. This guide will be posted on September 13th. In the meantime we are encouraging exhibitors, speakers and others to help us prepare the Sludge Dewatering GDPS.
