Belt Press Sludge Dewatering
Sludge dewatering is done with a belt filter press, which compresses the sludge to force water through a porous material. By running the belts through a serpentine of decreasing diameter rolls, a belt press sludge dewatering apparatus exerts mechanical pressure to a chemically conditioned slurry sandwiched between two tensioned belts.
Each BioChem press sludge dewatering system incorporates proprietary technologies that maximise solids recovery while reducing chemical usage. The type of belt press system to use is determined by the sludge solids characteristics encountered.
To satisfy our client’s unique solids requirements, BioChem products offer a variety of belt press sludge dewatering options. Each belt filter press is capable of handling a wide variety of solids loading. In fact, they are adaptable to future plant operational processes, increased throughput, or cake dryness requirements. For both small and big sludge dewatering process applications, we provide solutions and designs for a variety of sizes.
Our belt press sludge dewatering systems are meticulously designed and manufactured under stringent quality control. Belt press sludge dewatering systems are the ideal choice for dewatering secondary sludge due to their capacity to their economical operation and lower energy consumption as opposed to centrifuges and vacuum filtration systems.
The product range of BioChem belt press sludge dewatering machines find application in both municipal and industrial sectors. The features of our belt press systems make them a suitable choice for dewatering on any scale. The machines have a compact footprint and provide ease of maintenance. The sustainable solid feed rates and high solids capture maximise their performance.
BioChem uses structural frame materials of the highest quality for long-lasting operations with zero troubles. Indeed, all our standard belt press systems ensure cake consistency. When it comes to the number of belts, we have a variety of choices to meet various dewatering specifications.
