Screw press sludge dewatering/ thickening/ thickener also called
Multi-Disc Screw Press, it's clog-free and can reduce the alleviation tank and sludge thickening
tank, saving the cost of sewage plant construction. reducing the Minimized waste water and saving the
cost of transportation.
Screw press uses the screw and the moving rings to clean for itself as
clog-free structure and controlled by the PLC controller automatically, and it is based upon a new
technology that can replace the old/traditional filter press as like belt press and frame press, and
the main thing is that screw speed is very low, so that’s reason cost low power and water
consumption in contrast to the separator.
Sludge Dewatering Press is gives high performance sludge dewatering
system. It used the main central screw auger and a slowly oscillatory multi-disk filter to give the
gradually increase the pressure on flocculated sludge to produce an exceptionally dry sludge cake.
With electrical, water and polymer usage, and high capture rates of the system is very cost
Sludge Dewatering Press can be provided with all instrumentality needed
for dewatering enclosed and industrial plant/factory mounted, piped and wired on one stainless-steel
skid. This instrumentality includes the sludge pump, wash pump, chemical compound dosing system and
control panel. The system features are fully automated one push button startup and ending. Once
started up the system will run unattended and may be set to shutdown automatically with no operator
Sludge Dewatering Press is builded in stainless steel 304/316.

1.Uniform and accurate dispensing savings running cost.
2.Unique flocculating agent to make sludge dewatering easier.
3.System can be programmed to make the operation more convenient and accurate.
4.Simple process, low system investment, highly efficient and energy-saving dewatering.
Exclusive pre-concentration design , applicable sludge concentration of
2000mg/L~50000mg/L Due to innovation of the structure design .Highly suitable to various high and low
concentration sludge most especially the oily ones. Widely application range including municipal
sewage ,food wastewater, slaughter house ,printing and dyeing, oil chemical industry, paper making
,leather ,pharmacy and other different kinds of sludge dewatering.
Due to the moving of the fixed rings and moving rings self -cleaning.
The ubiquitous clogging is avoided. Handing oily sludge while not bother whereas separating the water
from the sludge simply. Above all, no want giant quantiry of flushing water and no odor, not required
secondary pollution for the sludge dewatering method.
Operation Cost Saving
Screw Press relles on the inner pressure of the filter chamber and also the rotating speed is as slow
as 2~4rpm. the average unit power consumption is 0.1~0.01kwh/kg-DS (1/8 of Belt Filter Press and 1/20
of Centrifuge) . Greatly minimize the running value of waste water treatment system.
Capacity and Scalability:-
Envista tech system multi disc screw press is designed to cater to
various capacities. Systems are available from 0.2m3/h – 133.5m3/h. Due to its modular design
and compact construction, the capacities can be easily scaled up by running system in parallel to
cater to almost any capacity as required and as when required. We can also optimize the designed for
cost and efficiency based on your customer requirement using the standard model.
The System can be fully automatic with PLC Controls. Option of variable
frequency drive(VFD) is Available to control the dosing and the screw speed to automatically adjust to
the varying loads of the effluent. The system can run continuously unmanned.
Handles oily sludge
The self-cleaning mechanism and stainless steel structure unable multi
disk screw pre to be ideal to dewater oily sludge. Due to the rotation of the helical axis, the moving
rings detach from the fixed rings while continuously cleaning itself. As a result clogging is avoided.
Therefore it can easily handle oily sludge.
The Dewatering Process
The Multi-Disc Screw Press is a robust Machine designed for reliability,
Consistency and continuous operation. The machine can be fed with sludge directly from the dewatering
and oxidation pit eliminating the thickening tank and the sludge storage tank. The machine
incorporates multiple processes all in one single continuous operation. The brief process is as below;
1.Flocculant preparation:- The flocculant is prepared in the flocculant
preparation tank at the recommended concentration.
2.Flocculation:- Polymer flocculant is added in the flocculation tank
filled with sludge. Efficient agitation ensures fast agglomeration and flocculation of the suspended
particles into the large flocks that can be separated
3.Sludge Thickening:- The flocks are transported through the thickening
zone onto the dewatering zone. A series of fixed and moving rings filters the water as the sludge
moves to the dewatering zone. The filtered water flows down through the rings to be filtered water
4.Dewatering:- The Sludge is transported from the thickening zone to the
dewatering zone by the screw conveyor. The spiral conveyor in the screw cylinder is specially designed
to move the sludge forward efficiently while gradually compressing them by the pushing the sludge
against the black plate. As the sludge is compressed, most of the water is squeezed out of the sludge.
The squeezed out water from the sludge is filtered by the series of fixed and moving rings. Clear
water flows to be filtered water tank below. The dewatering sludge exist from the outlet at the top
and falls down. The constant rotation of the screw ensures the sludge is pushed forward, thickened,
dewatered and existed while filtering the water, all at the same time.
5.Dryness and discharge control:- the sludge cake dryness can be
adjusted by the adjustable end plate. The end plate adjustment enables control of the cake dryness and
the rate of output from the sludge exit port. This is provided to handle sludge with varying
Our multi Disc screw press relies on advanced as compare to ancient
dewatering systems which might be simply blocked by low targeted sludge. The Envista screw press
permits for the automated continuous sludge action, thickening, dewatering and filtrate discharging.
The thickening zone permits the system to method each extremely targeted sludge furthermore as sludge
with a high-water content.

How it Works?
The conditioned sludge flows into the filter chamber from the
flocculation tank and is pushed to the discharging end. The thread on the shaft gets progressively
tighter as the waste water flows through the system, this causes the pressure on the sludge to
increase. The water is then separated from the sludge. The movement of the moving and fixed rings
cleans the gaps between them and prevents blockage traditionally experienced in similar systems. The
filtered sludge cakes is pushed forward by using the shaft and finally discharged from the end.
