Nippoh Chemicals Co., Ltd.
Operators had to make frequent check-ups and maintenance with the existing belt filter press before introducing the VOLUTE Dewatering Press. Sludge conditions changed time to time so that diluted sludge often spilled over from the side of the filter cloth, making operators have to clean up the machine every three hours.
Management recognized the inefficiency of frequent operator work with the existing machine and decided to improve the sludge management process. The VOLUTE Dewatering Press proved its advantages soon after installation. The self-cleaning system required much less operator attendance and maintenance work compared to the belt filter press. The VOLUTE Dewatering Press operates automatically so that operators only need to check sludge condition and operation once a week. The company is now able to reallocate time and labor to more productive work.
