Construction mud treatment process flow

Construction mud treatment is an inevitable part of construction projects. Its purpose is to remove solid particles and organic matter in the mud and purify the water quality. Construction mud contains high concentrations of suspended particulate matter and organic matter, which will cause environmental pollution if not treated. Therefore, the construction mud treatment process is very important.

Process flow

01 Preprocessing

First, the construction mud is collected into a specific pool. Use a mixer to stir the mud evenly and add a certain amount of water to make it fluid. It is then sieved and settled to separate the solid and liquid parts.

02 Precipitation

Drain the mud into a pool deep enough and allow it to settle naturally, depending on the viscosity of the mud and the concentration of solid particles. During this process, gravity causes the solid particles to gradually sink while the water floats on top.

03 Separation

After the second step is completed, the separated water is pumped out, leaving solid particles at the bottom, often called mud cake, which are then further separated using a centrifuge to reduce the moisture content.

04 Wastewater treatment

A large amount of wastewater is generated during the slurry treatment process. These wastewaters may contain high concentrations of suspended particulates and organic matter and require further treatment to meet discharge standards. Polyacrylamide can be used to treat these wastewater. As a polymer organic matter, polyacrylamide can effectively flocculate suspended particles in the water and form larger flocs, thereby effectively removing impurities in the wastewater, improving transparency, and making the effluent water quality finally meet the discharge standards.


Wastewater can be recycled after treatment. Through techniques such as filtration and distillation, the treated water can be reused to formulate construction mud, thereby reducing the need for water resources.

In construction projects, the successful implementation of slurry treatment processes not only protects the environment but also saves time and costs. By adopting efficient and environmentally friendly mud treatment processes, construction companies can effectively control the processing and cost of construction mud and improve efficiency.
