The replacement parts for VOLUTE™
Thanks to every one using our unique VOLUTE™ Dewatering Press, Amcon has reached over 3000 installations in 67 countries, 6 continents across the globe.
In order to ensure that the VOLUTE™ dewatering press operates to the best possible standard, we would like to advise you about the consumable parts.
VOLUTE™ dewatering press has two consumable parts that in time will need to be replaced 1. Moving Rings in dewatering zone(s) and 2. V-screw(s). When you feel that the throughput has dropped or the dry solid content has decreased, please check the hours displayed on the cumulative operation timer.
※This life span is just a reference. The life span will be based on the sludge type and setting of the operation.
There is another way to check if it is time to replace the parts.
You only have to look at the dewatering zone and see whether the rings are moving or not.
|Moving Rings in Dewatering zone||Screw|
|Model 100～130||5000 hours||10000 hours|
|Model 200～400||10000 hours||30000 hours|
Please check it out!!
If you feel it is time to replace the parts please contact our partner who you have bought our VOLUTE™ dewatering press and advise them of the operating hours on the cumulative operation timer.
An example of replacement
Amcon will present a case of parts replacement that was done recently.
A Japanese domestic model, an MS-203 installed in a sewage treatment plant in Yamagata prefecture of Japan, had been operating longer than our recommended time of replacement.
After Amcon checked the operation, the end-user decided to exchange the Moving Rings in the dewatering zone.
|Replacement parts||Moving Rings|
|Working time for Replacement||8～10 h|
|Solid content before Replacement||16%|
|Solid content after Replacement||18%|
The unit is working 8 hours every day under auto operation at this plant and there are no operators.
The end-user commented that sludge management became very easy as VOLUTE™ causes no trouble.
