Solids Dewatering and Compaction

Filquip offers a range of Solids-Liquids Seperators for Industrial Solids Dewatering and Compaction. Our equipment has been used for dewatering Animal Manure, Kava, Tapioca, Paper Pulp, Winery grape waste, Plastics, Rubber, Cattle Rumen, Offal, Brewery Wastes, Sludge, Sewage, Vegetables, Fruit and most other wastes that have fiber in them.

Sepcom animal waste compactionAnimal Waste Dewatering and CompactionSEPCOM Solids Dewatering Separator

The Vertical and Horizontal versions of the  SEPCOM Liquid Separator can be used to Dewater almost any slurry mix that has some fibrous material in it.

The special design of the machine ensures there is no clogging and no loss of the solids plug during operation. The unit performs separation by both gravity and mechanical compression, the machine is designed to separate the liquid phase from the solid phase of a wide range of materials such as sludge, sewage, manure, vegetable and fruit processing waste and, in general, solids-liquid mixtures in which the percentage of liquid inside the solids may differ considerably. The separated solid phase and liquid phase can both be easily and cheaply handled.

  • Up to 30% dry matter in the form of separated solids.
  • Never loses its solid plug,
  • Self adjusting solids outlet pressure for safe continuous operation.
  • Includes a balance tank for stable feeding.
  • The special shape of the screen chamber facilitates self cleaning.
  • Available in 3 sizes: DN150 for 20m3/hr throughput , DN200 for 45 m3/hr throughtput and DN250 for up to 65 m3/hr throughput.
  • Available in screen sizes down to 250 microns.
  • The vertical SEPCOM has a small footprint for simple integration into an existing facility.

Biogas water filtration systemMicrofilter unit for biogas digestateSolids-Liquids Separator SPECO Microfilter MFT

The MFT Microfilter is designed to be integrated into a filtration system to allow filtration of the liquid phase down to a micro level.

The unit consists of a micro-filtering system used for pretreatment upstream of the centrifuge or for some processes as an alternative system to the centrifuge.
The micro-screened liquid can be used for fertigation or in systems that reuse the liquid for diluting the dry matter fed into anaerobic digesters in biogas plants.

  • Available in screen sizes of 0.015, 0.025 & 0.05mm.
  • Self Cleaning Design.
  • Throughput capacity of 10m³ / hour with fluids containing less than 10% dry material.
  • SEPCOM Submersible Chopper Pumps and Agitators are also available.

Wastecom CPS Solids Dewatering Screw CompactionSPECO CPS Solids Dewatering Screw CompactorWastecom CPS Solids Dewatering Screw Compactor

The CPS Wastecom is a Dewatering Screw Compactor built for use in industrial applications.

The unit consists of a conveyor trough manufactured from stainless steel with a heavy duty screw spiral feeding the solids into the dewatering compaction module.

The Speco CPS Screw Compactor provides three functions in the one unit: conveying, de-watering and compacting. They can be employed in various de-watering applications and in combination with different types of solids-liquid separators or conveyors.  They are generally used in industrial applications for compacting various solids from different processes (Municipal/Industrial waste water treatment, Food processing, Slaughterhouses/Abattoirs, Rock wool industries, Plastics recycling processes and many more).

  • Available in Stainless Steel 304 or Stainless Steel 316 constructions.
  • Includes a replaceable trough liner from from Low Friction HDPE Polymer.
  • Special design for not intermediate or outlet bearings.
  • Up to a 40% reduction in screenings volume.
  • Low noise levels and low energy consumption.
