AF-BELT - Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies
Aquaflow’s AF-Belt twin wire press is specifically designed for pulp & paper mill sludge dewatering applications. AF-Belt is ideally suited for applications, where sludge inlet consistency and quality vary and for sludge mixtures with significant biosludge content. AF-Belt is designed to operate at low wire speeds in order to reach the highest possible dewatered sludge cake dryness (30 - 50 %) depending on ash and biosludge content. AF-BELT TWIN WIRE PRESS Aquaflow Sludge Dewatering Technology AF-Belt twin wire press dewaters sludge mixtures by pressing the sludge between two continuous wires. The dewatering is arranged in three dewatering sections. The chemically conditioned sludge flows across the gravity and wedge section through the S-curve section, where pressing begins and finally, through the pressure nip rolls, where the sludge is squeezed. Aquaflow can provide complete sludge dewatering systems including chemical conditioning, predewatering (thickening drum or gravity table) and dewatered cake handling equipment.
