Dewatering & Thickening

Wisconsin Industrial Customer

Facility: Industrial, Meat Processing Facility
Technology: PWTech Volute Dewatering Press, pilot model ES-201

In the Fall of 2023, PWTech piloted the Volute Dewatering Press at the customer's facility. The industrial facility has two plants that have similar treatment processes, except for the DAF sludge processing. The current belt press was producing 25.3% cake solids, but the press was reaching its life of operation and would need to be replaced in the future. 

Main Objective:

  • Demonstrate PWTech Dewatering Press' ability to yield dry cake solids and meet the plants dewatering objectives of 35% cake solids and highest solids capture rate possible.

Project Goals:

  • Effective dewatering technology to exceed belt press cake solids results.

  • Customer requested technology that required less maintenance and manpower to operate, automation.

  • Lower polymer usage. 

The ICS Group worked with the industrial facility and PWTech to demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of the Volute Dewatering Press with digested activated sludge. Request the results in our full report below.
