Benefits Of Using A Membrane Filter Press In Palm Oil
Filter Press is used to dewater effluent, slurry and sludge. Sludge dewatering reduces its water content to be disposed of in landfills and reduces the volume of the residue for more stable and economical operation of the effluent plant. Palm oil milling generates large volumes of effluent with 3%-4% suspended solids. Discharging all the undigested solids into the treatment pond can overwhelm the bacterial activity, making it difficult to reduce the BOD content of the discharge water to permissible limits.
Benefits Of Using A Membrane Filter Press
The benefits of solids removal from sludge using a membrane filter press include:
• high solids removal;
• production of drier cakes of less volume and reducing the volume of the final sludge;
• remove 50% of the BOD constituents in the waste water;
• high value solids cake produced suitable for compost fertilizer and animal feed;
• low maintenance;
• possibility of recycling the filtrate after treatment with UF and RO filters as process water.
