The different capacities of each Thune screw press with varying discharge stock consistencies ensure excellent dewatering performance for many different operating conditions, thanks to a special screw geometry to meet various raw material requirements and applications. The structure ensures a high and uniform discharge consistency. The screen hole pattern and the narrow tolerance between the screw flight and screens prevent from blocking. An additional screen (for non-pressurized screw presses) on the screw shaft leads to a higher and more uniform discharge stock consistency.
The screw press is used for various dewatering applications and is also suitable as a washer in mechanical, secondary fiber and pulping processes.
