Four WinklePresses WPN-G for Waterval in Johannesburg
Together with our South African partner Tenova Bateman Technologies - a division of the Tenova Mining & Minerals (Pty) Ltd. - Bellmer has equipped the Waterval Water Treatment Works in Johannesburg with four WinklePress WPN-G 3 X units for the treatment of various sludges.
Originally a combination of belt thickeners and belt filter presses had been planned to dewater the mix of various primary and excess sludges.

Instead, Bellmer and Bateman suggested one of the innovative alternative solutions for which Bellmer has developed a reputation over years. This involved replacing the belt thickener with an extended horizontal pre-dewatering zone, as featured on the WPN-G.

This is an economical solution which saves investment costs, and has proved highly successful at Waterval:

1 - 3 % higher dry contents and 5 - 10 % less flocculent due to improved roll configuration

heavy-duty roll bearings with triple sealing

Hydraulic belt guide and belt tension

unique doctor design

safety precision frame and high quality material for a long lifetime upon low maintenance cost

The four WinklePresses were manufactured, assemblAed and tested Bellmer’s works in Niefern.
Once completed, the WinklePresses were shipped to Johannesburg, where they were started up by Bateman specialists.
