Vertical Screw Thickener VST
The vertical design of this screw thickener provides additional dewatering effect by gravity. Since the device is always completely filled, the dewatering area is maximized. Thus, specific output is higher compared to a horizontal screw press of the same size, or the output dryness is higher at the same specific output. Outlet consistencies from 20-35% can be achieved with this modern concept, at low feed consistencies down to 4%. Due to the vertical arrangement and the compact design, the equipment has a very small footprint.
