A dewatering screw press is a screw press that separates liquids from solids. A screw press can be used instead of a belt press, centrifuge or filter paper. It is a simple, slow-moving piece of equipment that accomplishes dewatering by continuous gravity drainage. Screw presses are typically used for materials that are difficult to compact, such as those that tend to pile together. The screw press squeezes the material onto a sieve or filter and the liquid is collected through the sieve for collection and use.

An example of a dehydrating is a wine press. These machines date back to Roman times and work in a similar manner to modern screw presses, but have some disadvantages that have been corrected and improved upon in modern presses. Ancient wine presses only allowed the grapes to be juiced in batches, usually forming a thick cake on the sieve, making it difficult for the juice to flow through the sieve and be collected for use as wine. Most modern screw presses provide a continuous flow of material by surrounding the screw with a screen, which also helps to avoid a build-up of a layer of solid material on the screen. A modern approach even removes the screens in favor of a fixed and moving ring system, which often eliminates solids buildup entirely.

The most common screw press of this design is said to have been invented by the famous Greek mathematician Archimedes and is known as the screw conveyor. A screw conveyor consists of a shaft surrounded by a helical steel plate, similar in design and appearance to a corkscrew. This design is used in a variety of screw presses. There are some machines of this or similar design that aren't screw presses at all - they don't separate solids from liquids, but rather fuse them together. An example of this is a mold filling machine. The plastic inserts one end of the pellet and heats it, melting the pellet and discharging it into the mold. Another example is a cookware extruder used to produce snack foods such as pretzels.

Most screw presses can pump diluted material directly into the screw press, although pre-thickening can sometimes improve press performance. This is usually done using static or side slope screens, rotary drum screens, belt presses or gravity tables.

Valerius Anderson's intermittent flight design, patented in 1900, is the most commonly used as opposed to the continuous flight design. Anderson, while working on continuous flight designs, noticed that it caused co-rotation and resulted in less efficient dehydration, especially when using softer materials for dehydration. He solved this problem by breaking the threads of the screw. Breaks allow the material to stop forward movement between breaks along the shaft and also allow the material to build up sufficiently before being pushed through the screw press into a container where the material is captured. This allows for better dehydration and releases a stable cake material.

The use of interrupted flight design screw presses extends from soft or mushy materials to include screw presses for most materials because, unlike continuous design screw presses, interrupted flight designs do not require a constant feed or consistency of the material . If either of these were reduced in a continuous flight design, the production of dehydrated product would also be reduced, and to avoid this while maintaining a continuous flight design, larger and heavier presses would have to be added at variable speed settings; the press also An operator is required.

As mentioned above, the interrupted flight design eliminates the need for consistency because the compression of the screw does not change as the material does not advance through the screw until a sufficient amount of material is formed. This also eliminates the need to change speeds and operators. The design enables self-correction and efficiencies not possible with continuous designs. It allows for a more cost-effective screw press not only for sticky-slippery materials. Over time and with its original patent, resistor teeth were added to presses without scratches to increase the agitation of the material, thereby limiting the tendency to co-rotate within the press.

The accumulation of moisture in the press cake is controlled by a discharge gate or cone. Screw presses are available with different options including perforated/grooved screens, rotating cones, hard surfaces on the screw and supplementary screen surfaces in the inlet feed hopper on the cone face. Standard construction on screw presses is stainless steel, with carbon steel frames on larger presses. However, the exact details of screw press design depend on the material. Configurations of various materials, screw speeds, and screen sizes allow for excellent outlet consistency, including excellent capture rates. Most screw presses are designed to convey materials with a moisture content of 40-60%. The aspect ratio of the screw press also depends on the material. Capacity range of screw presses.

Compression is created within a screw press by increasing the inner shaft diameter of the screw. For example, if a 16 inch screw press starts with a 6 inch shaft, the pitch on the screw will be 5 inches high. If you increase the 6" shaft diameter to 12" at the discharge port, the fight will only be 2" taller at this point. So, apply compression as you press the material from the 5 inch opening through the 2 inch space.

This compression can also be achieved, thereby tightening the threads of the screw. If the pitch is 16 inches at the inlet, the material will move 16 inches per revolution. If it is then lowered to 8" at the discharge point, the material will move 8" per revolution. This results in more material being pressed into the press than can be forced out of the press at one time. This creates the required compression and pushes the liquid through the screen.

Another way to achieve compression is to place a cone at the discharge point. This can also be called a choke, plug or gate. In many designs it is bolted into a fixed position, creating a small fixed opening through which it must pass. More commonly, however, screw presses use hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders to push the cone into the discharge point.
