Screw Presses

The HUBER Q-PRESS® RoS3Q Inclined Sludge Press is a unique sludge dewatering machine developed by HUBER over 20 years ago and now over 1200 machines have been installed globally in many applications.

Screw press 16The screw press provides a simple, high performance system that offers an attractive life cycle value compared to centrifuges or belt presses.

One of the key features of the screw press is its slow operational speed. The basket and screw rotates at <1.5rpm thus minimising wear and prolonging life and service intervals.

Several RoS3Q models are available with capacities ranging from 20 to 540Kg DS per hour to suit most industrial applications for dewatering of primary or secondary sludge.

All machines are fully enclosed and manufactured in stainless steel

How the Screw Press Works

Dalby screw press 3Sludge is firstly flocculated in-line with a polyelectrolyte and enters the machine.

The machine consists of a main case, internal screw (rotating at <1.5rpm), spray bar and cylindrical wedgewire/mesh drum. As the sludge enters the unit the sludge is conveyed by the screw through the drum length whilst the filtrate is drained through the mesh. The drum consists of variable apertures and profiles, and together with a reducing screw pitch and increased shaft diameter, pressure is gradually applied to the sludge mass.

The ultimate high pressure zone is at the outlet section where an adjustable pneumatic cone is configured to achieve maximum sludge dryness. The cake is discharged through the cone into a bin or conveyor system and the filtrate collects within the main case and is discharged via gravity to the filtrate outlet flange.

Our Services

DESIGN CONSTRUCTION OPERATION

Engaging a professional wastewater treatment company to look after the entire wastewater project is a convenient, economical and hassle free option for industry.

Hydroflux Industrial can provide all process design works, manufacture and fabrication, construction and even complete operation of your wastewater treatment plant.

When Hydroflux Industrial provides complete solutions, we can either undertake a contract on a turnkey basis or work together with building services engineers and other construction professionals to ensure that the project is delivered smoothly, without interruption and on time.

BUILD OPERATE TRANSFER (BOT) FINANCING

The Hydroflux Group is able to offer a Build Operate & Transfer (BOT) option for water and wastewater assets in Australia and New Zealand. This innovative partnership arrangement strengthens existing strong bonds between Hydroflux and their customers for the long term.

Hydroflux, represented by a special purpose vehicle dedicated to the project, supplies the design, construction, financing, and operation of the water or wastewater plant. The plant is transferred to the client at the end of the contract, which is generally around 10 years.

Hydroflux also purchase existing water and wastewater plants on a similar basis, which releases cash to our clients for either returning or distributing to investors or for funding other investments in their core business.

The multidisciplinary structure of the Hydroflux group including design, construction, equipment supply and operation makes Hydroflux the ideal BOT water and wastewater partner.

Please contact Hydroflux if would like to explore the option of either acquiring a new water or wastewater facility without capital outlay or would like to free up cash by selling your existing water or wastewater assets.

  • 1 x storage compartment (approx. 1L x 2.5W x 1H)
  • Sludge is firstly flocculated in-line with a polyelectrolyte and enters the machine.

Dimensions and Installation requirements

General
A lowerable container truck with twistlocks for ISO containers is ideal for transportation. The container must be lifted at the four upper corner fittings only.

The installation place must meet the following requirements:

  • Plain, paved area
  • Sufficient space for access, installation, safe operation of the plant and regular removal of compacted sludge.
  • As short as possible distance to the thin sludge intermediate storage unit.
  • Gravity discharge of filtrate
  • Power supply
  • Fresh water supply
  • Sufficient exterior lighting

Dimensions and weight
Length: 6100mm
Width: 2500mm
Height: 2800mm
Weight: 7000 kg

Control system
The panel contains a 6” HMI whereby full control is provided for the entire dewatering system, including the polymer plant.

Service requirements
Power Supply: 415V/50 Hz – 20 AMP
Washwater requirement: At least 2.6 L/s at 5 bar (Please note that this is an instantaneous demand. The hourly consumption is approx. 800L. )
