VOLUTE Dewatering Press without Sludge Conditioning Tank

p_flow_2

1Flow Control Tank

Sludge feed is regulated with the overflow pipe, returning excess volume to the sludge storage tank.

p_flow_11

2Thickening Flocculation Tank

Polymer flocculant and sludge are stirred and mixed, forming floccs suitable for VOLUTE. Then, the built-in thickener in the tank instantly thicken the sludge.

p_flow_4

3Cylinder Unit

Sludge is instantly thickened at the thickening zone in the precedent stage, and dewatered at the dewatering zone in the subsequent stage under increasing inner pressure.
*Thickener contains no dewatering zone.

4Discharge Outlet for Dewatered Cake /
Discharge Outlet for the Thickened Sludge

Further pressure is applied from the outlet side with the End Plate, discharging dewatered cake with 15% or higher solid content.
With a thickener, thickened sludge is discharged.
*Thickener is not equipped with End Plate.
