MDQ-454C Multi-disc Screw Press

At ESMIL, we’re dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that redefine efficiency and reliability in wastewater management. We’re thrilled to share our success story from a Biogas Plant in Ohio where our MDQ Multi-disc Screw Press has been operating for a year. This achievement speaks volumes about the transformative impact our technology can have on your operations.

The Challenge:

The Biogas Plant in Ohio faced several challenges with their previous dewatering equipment, an old centrifuge:

  • Frequent Failures: The old centrifuge failed too often, resulting in costly repairs and extensive downtime.
  • High Labor and Engineering Costs: Operating and maintaining the centrifuge required significant operator and engineering labor, increasing operational costs.
  • Performance Optimization: The plant needed to achieve high capacity, maintain high dry solids content in the cake, attain a high capture rate with low filtrate TSS, and minimize polymer consumption.
  • Variable Sludge Properties: The continuously changing sludge properties posed a challenge in maintaining a stable dewatering process.
  • Filtrate Reuse: There was a desire to reuse part of the filtrate for polymer solution preparation to reduce freshwater consumption.

Our Solution:

ESMIL provided a comprehensive solution tailored to the plant’s unique needs:

  • MDQ-454C Multi-disc Screw Press: Our state-of-the-art, 4-drum, MDQ system, designed for high-performance dewatering, offered the ideal solution.
  • Filtrate Reuse Feature: We incorporated a filtrate reuse feature, optimizing resource utilization.
  • Polymer Solution Preparation System: An advanced polymer solution preparation system ensures precise dosing and efficiency.
  • Dynamic and Static Mixers: Our polymer injection system featured both dynamic and static mixers for thorough polymer blending.
  • Comprehensive Control System: A fully integrated control system manages the entire dewatering complex, ensuring seamless operation.

The Achievements:

The results speak volumes about the success of our solution:

  • MDQ Design Capacity: 2450 lbsDS/h, 60 gpm.
  • MDQ Nominal Capacity: 2950 lbsDS/h, 90 gpm.
  • Cake Dry Solids: 26 – 32%.
  • Filtrate TSS: 700 – 1200 ppm.
  • Minimal Operator Intervention: The MDQ requires minimal operator time, reducing labor costs.
  • Stability: Our MDQ system operates stably even with continuously changing sludge properties.
  • Reduced Water Consumption: Freshwater consumption decreased significantly due to the use of about 30% filtrate for polymer solution dilution.
