Trident recently expanded their line of sludge dewatering equipment with a high capacity MD Press 454. The MD 454 is Trident’s largest dewatering press. A single unit can process 250,000 gpd with up to 4,000 lbs ds/min throughput. The press features four dewatering cylinders, each powered by a 1.5KW motor. The cylinders are strategically designed to allow efficient thickening and dewatering in a single operation. Maintenance requirements are drastically reduced due to its self-cleaning design. Trident recommends a 10,000 hr service interval.
Trident’s MD Presses are a critical component in municipal or industrial sludge treatment applications. The equipment can accept highly dilute sludge and, depending on the requirements, produce cake with 20%- 30% TS. The press operates fully automated, requiring little operator attendance and simple maintenance procedures. Like Trident’s smaller units, the MD 454 is available with an optional flocculation tank and mixer unit.
