water removal



P2techers:
I'm looking for a cheap way to de-water sludge from a wet 
plasma cutting process. The process generates about 2 (55gal) 
drums of solids per week. When the material is removed from 
the machines it's about 50% water. Can anyone recommend a 
low-tech (passive) way to de-water this sludge for under $5000?
Would it be possible to just make a home-made device (the 
company does metal fabrication) by building a filter device with 
some sort of removable, supported-fabric filtration bucket 
section (suspended inside a containment vessel), which would 
catch the sludge and allow the water to drip through to a liquid 
collection vessel below?
Any help or creative ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Sherry
