GRAVITY BELT THICKENER

The OMEGA Gravity Belt Thickener is designed for the continuous mechanical thickening of municipal or industrial sludge. This simple and efficient technology aims at reducing the sludge volume at least 4 times with following characteristics:

  • low energy consumption,
  • stainless steel construction,
  • easy and low maintenance and supervision

The gravity belt thickener can be used :

  • As a final step to increase the sludge DS concentration to 6–8%. Therefore, replacing conventional gravity static thickener, flotation system
  • As a pre-dewatering stage when combined in-line with a Belt Filter Press to optimize the Belt Filter Press operation and performances
  • As a pre-dewatering stage before a Plate Filter Press or centrifuge to downsize the dewatering equipment
  • For sludge volume reduction before anaerobic digestion process to reduce digester size
