There are more than 1500 HUBER QPRESS Rotary Screw Press units in operation around the world. Specifically, in Australia and New Zealand there are some 60 HUBER units in operation, around half of which are in industrial applications.
HUBER QPRESS Rotary Screw Press
The main reasons for their popularity is their excellent performance, low energy usage and low maintenance.
“HUBER’s sizing is based on achieving a >95% capture without the need for any further downstream treatment of the filtrate to increase capture. We have verified this in our own research via numerous trials and operating sites across Australia and New Zealand.”
HUBER’s Rotary Screw Press was specifically developed for the dewatering of primary and secondary sludges and to meet customer needs for a low energy, high performance sludge dewatering technology.
The reliability and performance of the Q Press has been proven over many years in the Municipal marketplace and the Industrial segment has really caught on to this. We are able to achieve results equivalent to centrifuge dry solids with equal or better capture rates. In addition to this, these units have significantly reduced cost of ownership with regards to operation and maintenance” said James Hall of Hydroflux Industrial Pty Ltd.
