Filters Presses

Achieve a high dryness thanks to its effective process of sludge dewatering.

Filters Presses
Draco®

Toro Equipment´ sludge dewatering equipment, manufactured in our facilities, is a good alternative for the treatment of waste from both urban and industrial wastewater treatment processes.

The high dryness of the cakes achieved allows the waste to be managed as solids, considerably reducing waste management costs.

FILTER PRESS OPERATION

Stages of sludge dewatering

MATERIALS

Extend the life of your equipment with materials manufactured through processes that are careful with the enviroment

All machines, regardless of model and size, are characterized by:

  • Manufactured in stainless steel St 37-2, AISI 304 and GRP.
  • Surface finished in epoxy paint to protect them from possible corrosion.

ADVANTAGE

Maximum dehydration with less use of chemicals.

  • Higher degree of dryness than in other sludge dewatering systems, reaching 40%.
  • Large filtration surface in a small space.
  • Low energy and chemical consumption.
  • Corrosion resistant materials.
  • Ease of operation.
  • Automaton control option.
