Applicable to oily sludge! VOLUTE™ Dewatering Press reduces the sludge disposal cost by 75%!

Major meat-process plant in Canada


In the meat-process plant in Canada managed by a world's leading meat-process plant, huge amount of sludge disposal cost had been a longstanding problem. In production process, approximately 96m3 sludge had been generated a day, and the sludge had been disposed by a waste disposal firm.
This sludge disposal cost had reached as much as 93.6 million yen a year. The existing belt press had produced no substantive results in dewatering performance of the oil sludge generated in this plant. Oil sludge dewatering problem had been abandoned as hopeless to solve.

AMCON's offer for a solution

However, VOLUTE™ which excels at dewatering oil sludge resolved this problem at a stretch. VOLUTE™ Dewatering Press succeeded in denatering this oil sludge which is commonly difficult to be denatered and reducing its volume by 85%.
Amazingly, this plant could reduce the sludge disposal cost by 26 million yen which is 75% reduction of the prior cost. This huge cost reduction allowed the company to pay back the cost for the introduction of this equipment in about a year.

Dewatering low-concentration sludge

Manufacturing Plant of Synthetic Fiber Materials in Indonesia


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


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.”
