The Belt Filter Press is a broadly applicable product for dewateringmunicipal and industrial sludge
ABelt Filter Press is a biosolids/sludge dewatering device that appliesmechanical pressure to a chemically conditioned slurry, which is sandwichedbetween two tensioned belts, by passing those belts through a serpentine ofdecreasing diameter rollers. The machine can actually be divided into three zones:
（1）gravityzone, where free draining water is drained by gravity through a porous belt;
（2）wedgezone, where the solids are prepared for pressure application;
（3） pressure zone, where medium, thenhigh pressure is applied to the conditioned solids.
Typically,a belt filter press receives a slurry ranging from 1-4% feed solids andproduces a final product of 12-35% cake solids. Performance depends on thenature of the solids being processed.
