With FKC Screw press dewatering systems we can provide a cost effective solution for dewatering of municipal and industrial biosolids.

FKC screw presses can be used in an extremely wide variety of liquid-solid separation, or dewatering applications. A FKC screw press can be used in the same applications where belt presses, centrifuges, and filter presses have traditionally been used, as well as in more traditional screw press applications such as those in the pulp & paper industry. FKC custom designs and manufactures screw presses from 100 mm (4") to 1500 mm (59") in diameter, with wetted lengths up to 9 meters (30').

FKC Screw press dewatering systems are very simple, slow moving mechanical device. Dewatering is continuous and is accomplished by gravity drainage at the inlet end of the screw and then by reducing the volume as the material being dewatered is conveyed from the inlet to the discharge end of the screw press. Proper screw design is critical, as different materials require different screw speeds, screw configurations, and screens in order to dewater to a high outlet consistency while maintaining an excellent capture rate.

FKC can work with any sludge pump and grinder as part of a package.  If you would like more information on dewatering, screw presses, or thickeners, please contact us and we will connect you with our in-house dewatering specialist servicing your area.
