The Sludge Dewatering Equipment of Choice for Industrial Facilities Worldwide – Hy-Pack® Filter Presses from Beckart Environmental

Sludge dewatering equipment from Beckart Environmental makes it as easy as possible to remove water from sludge so waste can be disposed of in a cost-efficient manner. Our Hy-Pack® filter presses work as follows: A feed line moves sludge into the filter press, where it is dispersed into a series of gasketed plates. Pressure is applied to the plates, causing the water in the sludge to drain out through the equipment’s discharge ports. What is left in the filters is a dry cake that is ready to be removed and sent to the landfill for disposal.

Reasons to Choose a Hy-Pack Filter Press

Thousands of our Hy-Pack® filter presses have been installed worldwide, and for good reason. The benefits of our sludge dewatering equipment includes:

  • High solids retention – Our filter presses retain 35-50 percent solids in the filter cake, producing dense sludge cakes that minimize disposal costs.
  • Extensive automation – Because our sludge dewatering equipment can be highly automated and will only require labor for setting up the equipment, removing the filter cake, and performing routine maintenance on the machine, a filter press from Beckart Environmental can help contain labor costs at your facility.
  • Compatibility with other equipment – We’ve designed our sludge dewatering presses so they can be added to many different types of wastewater treatment systems. That way, you can install a filter press without also having to replace other equipment in your facility.
