Dewatering in AD Plants
With the UK AD & Biogas exhibition just days away, we are getting excited about the show and the equipment that we will be displaying. Our regular Runi expert Tony will be on the stand to discuss the Dewatering Runi and answer any questions you may have about the equipment.
Runi SK370 for Dewatering
Are you looking to increase feedstock to your Bio Digester? And reduce bin lift costs?
The Runi SK370 dewatering has become one of our most popular machines, and recent trials have proven it to be ideal for use in AD plants, as it is highly effective at separating food waste from packaging. Trials have typically demonstrated a reduction in weight by 50%!
It works by using a high movement screw to separate the liquids from the dry matter, meaning it uses less energy and is far more efficient than traditional methods such as centrifuging or heat drying. The liquid is pressed out through a matrix that is specially adapted to the material and application. Full or half empty containers with liquid are compacted and emptied easily and effectively. Faulty production and returned goods with water, beer, juice, paint etc are destroyed immediately and the liquid is collected and led away. The remaining waste takes up less space and is remarkably dry. This often results in lower waste costs and increase the option of selling on the materials for recycling.
The Runi is most suited to packaged materials including: packaged food waste; PET bottles; cans; PE film; cosmetics.
Vincent Screw Press
If you are looking to dewater organic fibrous material such as: raw food waste; fruits & vegetables; tobacco; manure; crops or paper & pulp, then the Vincent screw press is likely to be the solution for you.
Pressing is controlled by a discharge cone that provides easy adjustment of moisture content. Stainless steel construction and NEMA motors are standard. The graduated pitch and interrupted flight screw design prevents jamming, while Class II gearbox selection assures long life. The rotating cone feature eliminates purging conditions.
