AF-Table™ utilizes a simple gravity action to drain away water or other liquid from the sludge mixture.
The pressure rolls at the discharge end press the final loose water from the sludge mixture and this assures 2 - 4 percentage units higher sludge cake consistency than with conventional pre-dewatering equipment.
Transverse supports under the filter cloth provide a slight downward pressure for improved water removal. The improved pre-dewatering capability allows higher capacities for the existing sludge press equipment or the use of smaller press equipment for new installations.
The innovative construction of AF-Table™ protects even the most fragile sludge flocs and produces high quality filtrate with minimum polymer consumption. Inclined feed end and ploughs on the middle part of the table open and turn the sludge mat assuring efficient performance. AF-Table™'s unique low belt speed allows a lighter weight and simpler construction. Selected machine materials are non-corrosive and wear-resistant.
