Rocker® Screw Press

OR-TEC Rocker®:
An enclosed, high performance sludge dewatering system

The OR-TEC Rocker® Screw Press utilizes a central screw, a rocking multi-disc filter and variable back pressure plate to increase pressure on flocculated sludge and produce an exceptionally dry cake. There is no physical contact between the screw and the multi-disc filter or between each disc in the filter which prevents unnecessary wear and tear. With low electrical, water and polymer usage, and high solids cake and capture rates the system is very cost effective, easy to install, operate and maintain. An excellent solution for small to medium size plants where babysitting equipment is not an option and reliable, high quality equipment is a must.

The OR-TEC Rocker® Screw Press can be provided with all equipment required for dewatering, factory mounted, piped and wired on a single stainless steel skid. This equipment includes the sludge pump, polymer dosing system and control panel. The system features fully automated one push button startup and shutdown. Once started up the system can run unattended and can be set to shutdown automatically with no operator intervention.
