Signs of Wear in Wastewater Treatment Equipment

High-quality filtration equipment is essential to a wide range of industries, from hydraulic fracturing (produced water) to industrial laundry. And while filter presses are ordinarily built to last, everyday use is sure to take a toll on even the toughest machines. That’s why it’s important to look out for signs of wear in wastewater equipment, such as filter presses and clarifiers.

What Are Some Signs of Wear in Wastewater Treatment Equipment?

When it comes to industrial filtration equipment, general wear and tear can manifest in many ways. Here are a few essential issues to look out for when trying to identify whether or not your filter press requires maintenance or repairs:

Premature Component Failure

Filter presses are designed for long-term use. If certain parts are malfunctioning early, this could be a sign that an oil change or other maintenance service is required.

Oil Leaks

Frequently examine your press’s hydraulic parts to ensure there are no leaks. Leaks can be a sign of several underlying troubles, such as damaged cylinders or damaged cylinder seals.

Overactive Pump

Is your pump still running even after the press reaches clamp pressure? You could be dealing with an oil leak or a failing relief valve.

Sidebar Corrosion

If you’re noticing corrosion on your filter press’s sidebars, it’s probably a sign of an inadequate filter press plate cleaning process. Be sure to clean your filter plates thoroughly to prevent irreparable damage.
