WEAVEinMotion process belts are effective and robust cores for belt presses which are particularly efficiently acting systems for dewatering sludges and fruit mashes. A decrease in transport, disposal and recycling costs is obtained thanks to the reduction in volume achieved.
Belt Filter Press is often applied in wastewater treatment plant sludge dewatering process and it is one of the most cost effective options regardless of the type of sludge feed into the systems. There are several combined processes added into one unit and it involves different applications such as chemical conditioning, gravity drainage and mechanical shearing and compression effect to remove water and dry up the sludge. Today, belt filter presses are widely used and it has become a standard for general wastewater...
In the areas of chemicals, pharmaceuticals and foodstuffs, there are numerous possible applications for Flottweg Tricanter, Sedicanter and Sorticanter machines as well as decanters, belt presses and separators: Manufacturing lactose and casein in the dairy industry, separating plastics - plastics recycling, algae harvest, manufacturing soya milk and soya proteins, drying okara, manufacturing wheat starch, dewatering PVC, dewatering suspension polymers.
Value in Municipal Wastewater Treatment
WILSA® technology can benefit municipal wastewater treatment by altering the physical properties of water-based slurries entering the separation process to decrease chemicals, drop suspended solids, and allow solids to more readily separate from water.
Installation of WILSA® ElectroWave Conditioner upstream of a belt press at a wastewater treatment plant resulted in polymer usage dropping by >50% while achieving much dryer solids .
IMPROVED BIOSOLIDS/ BIO SLUDGE DEWATERING WITH WILSA® CONDITIONING
The WILSA ElectroWave™ effect can be used to condition polar fluids to alter their physical
properties, improving several chemical and physical processes.
- Reducing surface tension to improve the ability of water to repel solids - break physical / chemical emulsions
- Increasing the contact angle of water - improve coalescing of solid particulate toaccelerate phase separation
- Lowering the viscosity of water - reduce friction of flocculated...
