“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 a 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.” By Mr. Jean Meunier, operator at CSR.
