The Drypress Screw Press provides a unique, cost effective solution for dewatering of municipal and industrial sludge. The equipment is designed to dewater the Primary Sludge and/or Secondary Sludge dewater sludge from a dry content of 0.8-6% to 15-25%.
The sludge is fed to the machine via pump or inlet hopper into a cylindrical progressive three stage wedgewire or perforated drum.
The flocculated sludge enters the the Drypress, the liquid fraction drains immediately
A progressive and gentle compression of the sludge against the drum thickens the sludge.
Sludge is pressed against counter pressure cone, reaching high results in dryness.
On the tip of the screw flight there is an elastometer to create a seal between drum and screw and to generate pressure.
The Drum is washed by a Motorized washing ring moving up and down the drum.
The cone pressure is pneumatically regulated to generate more or less pressure on the sludge
Our centrifuges were designed with ease of maintenance in mind. It is one of our greatest strengths.
The Drypress produces has a quality filtrate.
Drum is made in split section to provide access without complete drum removal.
The Drypess is available as a skid, complete with control panel, conveyor, sludge pump, and polymer system.
