Tema Engineers are providers of belt filter presses and gravity drainage decks that have proven to be economical and low maintenance options for dewatering underflow in a range of applications.
Tema Engineers' belt filter presses and gravity drainage decks are thickening and dewatering solutions that have a small footprint, require few structural needs, and are both low in capital and operating costs.
Tema Engineers have their own unique and innovative belt filter press design, which stems from over two decades of experience with dewatering solutions. Boasting one of the smallest footprints on the market, Tema Engineers' own belt filter press is a light weight machine that can still process the large tonnages that the older, antiquated belt filter presses could. Standing at under 6ft tall, the current Tema Engineers belt filter press offers superior dewatering performance thanks to its small diameter rolls and tight wrap angles, which induce high pressure and shear.
Similarly to the belt filter press, Tema Engineers have their own Gravity Drainage Deck as well. This machine is a cost effective and energy efficient way to thicken sludge, working by draining most of the free water in sludge through a moving screen, while retaining the thickened sludge. These gravity drainage decks are fitted with wear resistant ploughs to turn the sludge over in order to maximise free water release.
Perhaps an even more cost effective dewatering solution is the combined gravity drainage deck and belt filter press that both thickens and dewaters through just one sludge conditioning process.
The gravity drainage deck is built specifically to handle high hydraulic loads with low solids content, which then discharges the prethickened sludge directly to the belt filter press where the final dewatering occurs and generally leaves a spadable cake.
