Mobile Dewatering

Future Industrial Services Ltd operates a large range of specialist equipment with the site services division focusing on providing onsite services at customer locations. Within this we operate our mobile dewatering service.

Mobile dewatering; over a number of years Future have developed a significant amount of experience in the following range of applications;

  • Settlement Lagoons
  • Scale and Mill Scale
  • Settling Ponds
  • Sludge tanks
  • Interceptors
  • Effluent settlement lagoons
  • Dredged sediments
  • Water treatment plants
  • Drilling and excavation mud’s


Disposing of liquid sludge can be very expensive, FIS can offer Mobile Processing Solutions or Fixed Installations to reduce the volume of these wastes to a dry filter cake and aqueous stream which may be recycled back through the production process. This system of waste minimisation can be used in projects of all sizes, and is suitable for organic & inorganic sludges.


Typical uses include;

  • Cleaning of settlement tanks and Lagoons
  • Dewatering of sludge tanks for recovery/disposal
  • Recovery of raw materials from high volume sludges

FIS can carry out a sample filtration press of the products using our mobile filtration unit to which we can illustrate the quality of filter cake that can be achieved.

FIS mobile processing solutions offer mobile centrifuges and filter-press capacities ranging from 5m³ to 125m³ per hour and the additional application of multiple units can further increase this capacity. These machines can be mobilised at short notice and be operational on site within a matter of hours and come complete with polymer batching tanks and or pre-treatment conditioning and reaction tanks. FIS also have mobile membrane filter-press plant capable of delivering 15 bar (double the usual operating pressures offered by standard filter-presses) resulting in filter-cakes of exceptionally high dry solids content.

FIS can design, build and operate a fixed processing plant and equipment to customers exact requirements and also provide a range of integrated essential services, such as skips or bins for waste collection.

FIS also offer mobile carbon adsorption units that can be bolted on to filtrate lines to remove residual organics from aqueous effluents.


The site services operation benefits from having direct access to both the industrial services and waste management facilities operated by Future in Knowsley, Newport, Honiton and Berwick.

This development continues as Future invests heavily in new equipment and technology to drive the market in recovery and recycling.
