Solid Waste Separation | Filter Bed Systems | Sludge Dewatering

Gravity Flow Systems began in Carbondale, PA in the early 1980’s with the simple idea of using gravity and other natural forces to separate solids from liquids. Our first product was the Wedgewater™ filter bed system, using stainless steel wedgewire for sludge dewatering and drying. It worked extremely well, and the company flourished by providing this equipment for simple, effective dewatering of sludge.
