ADEQUATEC has designed and developed the ADEQUAPRESS, a high efficiency screw press. It is a self-contained sludge thickening and dewatering unit that operates in the same way as the ADEQUAPRESS…
This modular technology, the most economical on the market (energy, water, reagents), can be adapted to all types of biological, urban and industrial sludge, digested or not, as well as to digestates from methanization. 

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

“The only technology that respects the four natural stages of dehydration,

(Flocculation > Dewatering > Thickening > Dewatering), the ADEQUAPRESS

screw press produces sludge with a consistency close to the mechanical dryness limit while ensuring a clear filtrate. 

On the latest generation, the ADEQUAPRESS electrical cabinet is equipped with a touch panel

(HMI) and an Ethernet router for remote communication with the PLC, speed controllers or any other speed controllers or any other electronic equipment or intelligent sensor in the dehydration workshop. dehydration plant. This makes it possible to monitor operation remotely, optimize settings or schedule a service or schedule a preventive maintenance visit.

1

Flocculation

1

This step is essential for the flocculation of the sludge. It allows to deliver the optimum quantity of polymer and to ensure its mixing with the sludge.

2

Drainage

2

Gravity separation of pore water in the first drum.

3

Thickening

3

Soft mechanical separation of pore water

4

Pressing

4

Strong mechanical compression to extract the last fraction of pore water present
