In the wastewater treatment sector, dewatering technology is essential for efficient solids management. Belt filter and rotary presses stand out for their capability to effectively separate water from solids, resulting in significant volume reduction and cost savings in waste handling. These systems are designed with features that address key concerns like odor control, operational efficiency, and space utilization. With configurations ranging from compact, skid-mounted units to mechanical solutions with minimal maintenance needs, technologies like those below offer a range of options to meet various operational demands.

BDP Industries 3DP Belt Press
The skid-mounted 3DP Belt Press from BDP Industries is a turnkey dewatering solution with all components integrated on a hot dip galvanized skid for easy semi-permanent installation. This skid includes a booster pump, sludge pump, emulsion polymer system, hydraulic unit, controls and a 20-foot stainless steel screw conveyor. The press includes an independent gravity section, vertical pressure section and paddlewheel distributor. Features addressing odor control concerns include odor hoods, enclosed gravity sections, piped away filtrate and noise-reducing shower boxes. 518-695-6851; www.bdpindustries.com

Bright Technologies, Division of Sebright Products, 0.6-meter skid-mounted belt filter press
The compact 0.6-meter skid-mounted belt filter press from Bright Technologies, Division of Sebright Products, has stainless steel frame and roller construction as well as radius wedge zone and wing roller for sludge dewatering. Components include a sludge pump, polymer system and wash-water booster pump. Options include a sludge flowmeter, air compressor and discharge conveyors. With a compact, walk-around skid design, it can be utilized in as little as a 10-by-20-foot floor area. The Boerger rotary lobe sludge pump has a maintain-in-place design offering ease of maintenance. Cake solids of up to 35% can be achieved. Rates of 25 to 50 gpm make it ideal for small applications or when a processor has outgrown dewatering containers. 800-253-0532; www.sebrightproducts.com

Prime Solution Rotary Fan Press 
Prime Solution’s Rotary Fan Press is a simple mechanical dewatering solution that provides effective results and eliminates the need to apply for waivers. It addresses the concern of space constraints and limited operator time available, with twice the throughput in a smaller footprint.  Having the ability to start the machine up and schedule automatic shut-down by volume or time allows plant personnel the freedom to focus on other key responsibilities during the day. It offers low maintenance and wear parts, along with low energy and water use. 269-694-6666; www.psirotary.com
