Manure Series KP Screw Presses (older brochure)
The Model KP Screw Presses are machines in which a screw of progressively reducing pitch rotates inside a cylindrical perforated screen. Material entering the hopper is subjected to gradually increasing pressure as it moves toward the exit end of the press, forcing the liquid phase to extrude through the screen. Dewatering of manure has proven successful over a wide range of applications: scrape, flush, digester, paunch; cow, hog, horse; mixed beddings. Final pressing is controlled by a discharge cone that provides easy adjustment of moisture content. The rotating cone feature eliminates purging conditions. All stainless steel construction and NEMA motors are standard. The graduated pitch and interrupted flight screw design prevents jamming, while Class II gearbox selection assures long life. Screen sleeve inserts of 3/32" and 0.033" perforation are standard; 0.015" slotted screens are optional.
