The feed sludge is subject to a pressure drop where liquids pass through the filter openings and solids advance within the channel. Sludge continues to dewater as the feed pump supplies more sludge, slowly moving the solids through the channels toward the outlet of the press, forming a cake. Units can be expanded up to four channels with capacities of 260 gpm. Skid-mounted systems include central operator control panel, feed pump, chemical prep, inline mixing and the availability of plant-integrated controls.
