The best technology to get dry cake solids up to 40% and solids capture over 99%.
The Alfa Laval Plate Press is ideal for sludge dewatering applications where very high dry cake solids are a key priority. This press can achieve dry solids up to 40%, and is easily customized to suit all dewatering and solids capture requirements. At the same time, operating costs are minimized due to very low consumption of both polymer and energy. The result is an extremely cost-efficient output of solids with dryness up to 40% and a solids capture rate greater than 99%, the highest of any dewatering technology.
The Alfa Laval range of plate presses offers unrivalled quality, integrity and engineering excellence in a robust design that also includes full operator safety protection systems. An assisted cake-discharge mechanism and automatic cloth washing facilities are available on all mechanised units.
The plate press is available in recessed, membrane and plate/frame versions, and the range features sidebar and overhead designs. Frames are manufactured from carbon steel, and full automation is also available. Standard feed pressures are 7, 10 and 16 bar(g), and higher-pressure units for industrial and mineral applications can be provided.
