Industrial Wastewater Treatment Equipment increases in importance as waste water treatment requirements become more stringent. Waste water slurry are pumped into the chambers of the filter press. Filtrate passes through the filter cloth and solids are retained. Solids collect on the cloth, forming an excellent filter cake, as if one were to intentionally pre-coat the cloth. As additional solids are pumped into the chamber, the cake continues to build until the entire chamber is full of dewatered solids. The press is then cleaned and recycled.
Wastewater generated by manufacturing processes can contain a variety of suspended solids, dissolved solids, and other contaminants. Dewatering is the process of removing water from wastewater to reduce its volume and weight, making it easier and more cost-effective to handle, transport, and dispose of.
With plate sizes ranging from 400 to 2500 mm, these presses offer a simple, reliable method of compressing and dewatering solids down to 15% moisture. This in turn provides clearer filtrate solutions than other systems.
Our Filter Press systems are available with Recessed Chamber, or Diaphragm Squeeze Plates and able to accommodate a wide variety of cloths.
There are a variety of dewatering methods that can be used in manufacturing, depending on the characteristics of the wastewater and the desired outcome. Some of the most common dewatering methods include:
The choice of dewatering method will depend on a variety of factors, including the following:
Dewatering wastewater in manufacturing has a number of benefits, including:
Here are some specific examples of how dewatering wastewater is used in different manufacturing industries:
Overall, dewatering wastewater is an important part of many manufacturing processes. It can help to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and protect the environment.
