The HUBER range of screw presses offer industry leading dewatering performance with the flexibility to deal with varying sludge consistency. As a pressurised treatment unit with variable main drive and pneumatically actuated backpressure cone, the HUBER Screw Press Q-PRESS® provides the operator with complete control of the dewatering process. Automated cleaning means that even fatty/oily sludge is no problem for HUBER machines.
Sludge treatment by thickening and dewatering offers reduced volumes and alternative, cheaper disposal routes. In some cases, thickening or dewatering sludge with HUBER equipment has resulted in zero cost disposal options becoming available. Since there is still value in the sludge, it can be sent for further treatment at an Anaerobic Digester, often free of charge.
By choosing equipment with low operational and maintenance requirements, clients spend less time and money on the equipment over its lifetime. They also get the benefit of a more efficient and reliable piece of equipment, meaning less chance of unplanned downtime and the associated costs.
HUBER are able to offer on-site trials using our containerised trial units. These allow sites to confidently assess not only the performance of the machine but the ease of operation and minimal amount of time required from site operatives. Following a trial, we issue a detailed report so that capital and operating costs can be evaluated.
