The new ANDRITZ C-Press: efficient sludge dewatering with high performance and low operating costs
International technology Group ANDRITZ has launched new sludge dewatering equipment for waste water treatment plants, industrial treatment plants, and food applications.
The ANDRITZ C-Press, a screw press providing high performance combined with compact design, features low operating costs.
With its direct drive system and conical shaft with constant screw pitch, the new press can handle inlets from 1 to 23 m3/h and outlets from 50 to 800 kg DS/h. In addition to a long lifecycle, the press also offers the advantages of easy operation, low maintenance, and – due to bi-sequential cleaning – 30% less water consumption than comparable equipment. The new C-press complies with all European Union regulations on such issues as safety, hygiene, and environmental protection.
