Screw Press Sludge Dewatering Machine

Screw Press Sludge Dewatering Machine.
The Multi Disc Screw Press is a sludge dewatering equipment that works on the filtration mechanism after the coagulation-flocculation of sludge.
The screw press is built with a stack of alternating moving and fixed discs with varying diameters depending on the capacity.

Sludge enters on the feed side and moves forward using a helical screw and exits from the other side in the form of cake.
The primary feature of the multi discs screw press is the stack of alternating moving and fixed discs which ensure self-cleaning as the moving discs are displaced by the screw profile in a reciprocating circular profile

The screw press is modular and can be provided in 1, 2, 3, and up to 4 screws in a single machine.
Dynamic Equipment’s Multi Disc Screw Press differentiates from contemporary dewatering equipment like centrifuges or filter press by the following features:
6-10 times lower power consumption
5-year maintenance-free operation proven in the field
Low speed of <4-6RPM ensures negligible wear and tear
Lower polyelectrolyte consumption

There are 4 primary Stages of Sludge Dewatering in a multi-disc screw press:

Flocculation
Thickening
Dewatering
Filtrate recycling

Parameter of Multi Disc Screw Press

Power Consumption- 1KW
Maintenance Mechanical- Operated at only 4 RPM with almost zero wear & tear Complete built is in SS 304/316
Solid Content of Sludge Dewatered- 20-25% w/w (75-80% moisture)
CAPEX- 10% higher than owning a centrifuge or filter press
Recurring CAPEX- Almost zero
Chemical Cost- 50% of that from centrifuge when processing biological sludge
Noise & Vibrations- No noise and vibrations as all moving parts are at low RPM
Labor Cost- No labor cost of manual handling of sludge as it is in continuous application
