Our biggest models can dewater huge amount of sludge during summer months.

Juice Producer in France

After a successful pilot test has been carried out, AMCON successfully installed one of our biggest models, ES-351 in the Juice factory in France. Although they had been using a belt press until then, they were not satisfied with its performance and they were always looking for an alternative solution for their sludge dewatering until they found Volute Dewatering Press.

Client’s Voice

“Due to a strong seasonality of our production we were struggling to dewater huge amount of sludge during summer months. Our former belt press allowed only 8 hours operation per day as the presence of operator was necessary. Also the water consumption was huge and throughput wasn’t enough for our site. So we decided to replace our belt press with another technology which will allow us to treat conveniently all the sludge during summer months. Since we started using VOLUTE Dewatering Press which can operate 24 hours unmanned we are able to treat all the sludge and also we don’t have problem with overfeeding our storage tank. Water consumption is extremely low and throughput around 85kg-DS/h is much higher than we were achieving with belt press.”

Dewatering low-concentration sludge

Manufacturing Plant of Synthetic Fiber Materials in Indonesia

Problem

Before installation of Volute Dewatering Press, they threw cake into their dryer after dewatering by their belt press . Drain of Synthetic Fibers purified from oil was not suitable for micro-organisms and was low MLSS. In addition , sludge concentration from thickening tank was quite low(6,000mg/L). So, Water content in Sludge cake became 92% by belt press machine. Because of throwing the soft sludge like Tofu, the load was pretty high.

AMCON’s offer for a solution

Since Volute Dewatering Press adopted the unified structure that serves two functions, thickening and dewatering in the single machinery, the low concentration sludge can be dewatered. The drum filter, because of the clog-free, realizes higher speed of filtering phenomena per filtering area as compared to the methods, and the sludge is instantly thickened by gravity. They can constantly throw sludge into the dryer by installation of Volute that can keep 85 % of water content so easily.

Dewatering of oily sludge without clogging

Chicken processing plant in Ukraine

Problem

The chicken processing plant in Ukraine had a big issue on tremendous amount of sludge disposal costs due to direct disposal of the sludge without dewatering. They had tried to look for a suitable sludge dewatering equipment for easy dewatering of the oily sludge, however it was almost impossible to find.

AMCON's offer for a solution

The customer installed ES-303 model understanding of the advantage of Volute Dewatering Press; high resistance to oily sludge.
Customer’s comment: “We used to hesitate to install dewatering equipment due to anxiety for problems such as clogging and frequent maintenance of equipment for dewatering of oily sludge. However we are surprised at the fact that Volute hardly has clogging. The full automatic operation is very helpful for easy management. The water content in sludge cake is as good as 71.5%, which is the performance of the Volute Dewatering Press we are greatly satisfied with. We really realize that the installation of Volute is the best choice we made.”
