What is Dewatering Equipment?

2013/7/23 11:13:22      view:

  Dewatering equipment is designed to separate water from solids using force, including vacuum and centrifugal motion. Used widely in waste management, dewatering equipment can save money by reducing solids handling or disposal expenses that are charged on a unit weight basis. The weight percentage of water in landfill-bound solids and raw wastewater sludge can effectively double or triple the cost of removal or treatment services.

  Depending on the type of solid and the size of the operation, dewatering can be more cost effective than heat drying systems for water removal because the energy cost to power an oven or microwave can be much higher than to power a motor or pump. It may also be easier to streamline dewatering methods into a process line. In applications demanding very high levels of water removal, dewatering is used generally as the preliminary method, and is followed by stages of heat drying or digestion.


Carbon steel with hot dip galvanized or completely stainless steel frame. Open design or optionally stainless steel or Plexiglas protection panels for side covering. High quality filter belt for high cake dryness. Polypropylene belts provide long life. Precise belt tracking and tensioning systems for belt safety and clean, reliable operation. Heavy duty bearings to ensure minimum maintenance requirement and long life. Large diameter stainless steel perforated drums for efficient dewatering and pressure boosting. Rubber covered drive and tensioning rollers, polyamide rilsan covered compression and shearing rollers.
