Sludge Dewatering Equipment from Beckart Environmental

Beckart Environmental is a well-known manufacturer of sludge dewatering equipment. Businesses and municipalities trust us because they know that our equipment is produced with superior-quality standards and sold to clients directly, cutting out the middlemen to save you money.

The two main types of sludge dewatering equipment Beckart Environmental offers are Hy-Pack® filter presses and dewatering centrifuges. This equipment works as follows:

Hy-Pack® filter presses

  • Sludge enters the machine through a feed line, filling a filter in each plate.
  • Pressure is applied to the plates, forcing out the water in the sludge.
  • Dry sludge cakes can be removed from the filters, so the waste can be easily transported and discarded.

All of Beckart’s filter presses come with several standard features, including solid steel head and follower plates, all-welded hydraulic cylinders, 100 psi-rated polypropylene filter press plates, polypropylene filters, and 2-speed hydraulic pumps, which all combine to make our filter presses capable of producing filter cakes that are 30-50% solids. What’s more, our presses are designed with a high degree of automation, so all your employees need to do is initiate the sludge pump at the start and clear the cakes at the end. We also offer models for batch loads of any size, from 400 to over 10,000 gallons.

Dewatering centrifuges

  • Sludge enters the centrifuge, where it is rotated at a high speed.
  • The centrifugal force helps separate waste from water, causing each part to move toward an opposite side of the machine.
  • Sludge and water exit in different places, so the waste can be easily collected and discarded.

Our wastewater centrifuges can handle 5 to 150 gallons per minute, so you can use them in facilities that have a large volume flow. Furthermore, they can save you money in labor costs because they require only limited operator intervention. Additionally, they are designed to work easily with other equipment, so you can upgrade your sludge dewatering capabilities without having to replace your existing system. And you’ll be in a good position to trim your electricity bills since our centrifuges use a minimal amount of energy to dewater sludge.

In addition to dewatering equipment, Beckart Environmental offers support services to get your system up and running and ensure that it is operating as efficiently as possible. Our team can recommend equipment for your specific needs, install it, and teach your employees how to use it. Our goal is to provide a single-source solution, so all of your needs will be met.
