Aerofloat can assist in sizing and providing a variety of equipment options that are specific to each industry’s needs, including filter press, screw press, wave press, centrifuge or gravity tank dewatering.
Aerofloat’s sludge dewatering designs are applicable to new treatment plants and can also be designed as an addition to existing facilities. A mechanical sludge dewatering device can provide significant financial savings if you have high operating costs due to sludge disposal.
Prior to installing a new wastewater treatment plant, Aerofloat reviews its clients predicted sludge make and the associated costs. Aerofloat’s engineers have expert understanding of the different sludge types and can prepare a net benefit analysis for suitable mechanical dewatering options for its clients.
Using 3D CAD modelling, Aerofloat’s engineers provide each client with a complete virtual design model prior to installation, ensuring the client can visualise how the solution will appear on site.

The filter press can be used to dewater solids from a number of processes via a plate and frame system using high pressure rams. Typically, a very high solids content (up to ~50%) can be achieved with a filter press.
Filter presses are mainly used for treating liquid solids from chemical treatment processes – such as ink wastes and other types of chemical sludges. They can be used for sewage and other biological waste solids if a solid cake with high solids (low moisture) content is required.
Aerofloat has successfully installed filter presses on multiple sites for the VISY group.
