Dewatering Presses Prove to Be the Right Fit


The Brunswick (Maine) Sewer District sought a continuous dewatering solution to replace two existing 2-meter belt filter presses.


The district chose two six-channel rotary sludge dewatering presses from Fournier Industries. They were installed without process interruption and fit the existing footprint, avoiding a costly building expansion.


Operations staff members are satisfied with the presses due to energy efficiency, reduced corrosive conditions, automated controls and less operator oversight. Since the dewatering process is contained within each machine, the ambient room conditions are exceptionally clean and dry, requiring fewer air changes per hour. 

“The chemical usage and polymer efficiency have exceeded expectations,” says Jennifer Nicholson, treatment supervisor. “This is likely due to the compact design of the polymer conditioning arrangement that is part of the overall package.”
