PCI AFRICA ENTERS PARTNERSHIP WITH DEWACO FOR
SLUDGE DEWATERING EQUIPMENT
DEWACO LTD are a Finnish company established in 1986 to provide economical solutions in sludge handling based on combined experience and innovative technical know-how to produce high-end technology equipment designed for long and reliable working life at minimal operational and maintenance costs.
As a leading player at the forefront of deploying the latest dewatering technology to the municipal and industrial water and wastewater applications, DEWA are represented in over 20 countries with installations in over 70 countries, and are now represented in Africa by PCI Africa.
The DEWA product range includes an extensive range of Belt Filter Presses for dewatering and Chain & Flight Collector systems. As sludge treatment specialists, the DEWA range of equipment includes development of a number of concepts to provide equipment offering superior performance, mechanical reliability, long life durability and user-friendly features.
Sludge dewatering systems generally include a pre-dewatering section for thin sludge suspensions. It not only reduces the sludge volume, but also increases enormously the capacity of subsequent dewatering units.
The DEWA belt filter press can handle very thick sludges and for this an independent gravity drainage deck is provided to pre-thicken the sludge before it enters the main wedge and pressing sections for dewatering. The sludge dewatering is achieved by means of bringing the sludge between two belts which are maintained under tension through a pneumatic (or hydraulic) cylinder system which results in squeezing out the liquid trapped between the solids.
