# How to calculate the percentage of Sludge?

## How to calculate the percentage of Sludge?

(OP)
Hi, fellows.

I want to calculate the amount of sluge after my hifh fuel oil treatment.

data:
I have 12 Alfa Laval purifiers;
Each one discharges maximum 11,1 liters of sludge / hour and 13,8 liter os water by discharge;
I set each purifier to discharge each 1 hour;
I have an average 1,7% as asphalten, 0,002% as ashes, 0,1% as water and 0,5% as sulfur for each 1 "liter" of high fuel oil.

Can you guys help me out to figure how much sludge I discharge?

Purifier does discharge 26,3 liters each discharge.
