Dewatering and Sludge Removal Process
A belt press is designed to removal liquid – usually water – from a slurry mixture. By using a number of porous belts, a filter press will utilize both pressure and gravity to separate the water from the liquid-solid suspension. During the gravity stage, sludge is allowed to thicken as the filtrate, or water, is removed. Adding pressure further exposes the sludge to increased forces, further removing water and increasing filtration.
The filtrate is removed and often piped to the base of the machine. It can also be used as belt wash water. The solids are discharged as a high solid content friable cake.
At Aspen, we offer a line of diverse belt press filters that includes mobile belt filter presses, skid mounted belt presses, plate and frame presses and gravity belt thickeners.
Our mobile belt press rental units have been completely rebuilt and customized to ensure operator safety and easy of use. We’ve widened our trailers to accommodate 16 feet of space, allowing more room for a safe work space. The units’ motors and pumps have also been placed on variable frequency drives, allowing full operator control throughout the entire dewatering process.
