VT series

Sludge Thickener VOLUTE™

Thickener VT series thickens sludge with concentration of 1% or less to that with a concentration of 4 to 6%.
This mechanical thickening will constantly produce stable thickened sludge, which is difficult with gravity thickening.
It is possible to install as pre-thickener for your existing belt press or centrifuge to improve their dewatering performance.
Furthermore, even in some facilities where the dewatered cakes are not easily transported, the volume of sludge to be disposed of can be reduced by thickening and yet it is still easily transported (pumped) as it is still in liquid form.
