Disc Thickener – AKSE
AKSE is a hydrostatic disc thickener to thicken different suspensions. In general, we can offer you different product types for different application fields. For instance: the AKSE F can be used for thickening of fibrous suspensions such as chemical, mechanical pulp and waste paper and fine rejects. The AKSE S is used for thickening of sludges and fine rejects by adding a flocculant.
Downstream dewatering of fibres and sludges represents a fundamental processboth from economical and ecological viewpoint.
Depending on the customer demands, Bellmer offers a combination of dewatering systems including both AKSE disc thickener and AKUPRESS screw press. Here we build on the experiences gained from more than 400 AKSE disc thickeners sold and delivered.

At the beginning, the material enters between two discs which are rotating on a shaft. The hydrostatic dewatering process starts when the material drains through the mesh of the discs into the vat. At the end of the process, the discharge of the thickened medium is on the opposite side of the rotating discs.
