When a saturated slurry or sludge must be dehydrated in a continuous process municipal waste water treatment facilities and industrial waste processing plants often turn to belt press filtration. Customers in these industries need automatic equipment that does not demand constant attention from operators, the peace of mind that comes with robust and industry proven design, and low investment and operating costs.
Tefsa has been providing belt press filters that meet these needs for more than 30 years. Over 2,000 belt filter press models are installed in over 1,000 customer facilities worldwide. The belt filter press distinguishes itself from competitors’belt filter presses by an effective pre-dehydration phase that includes a turning of the filtrate bed to enhance initial water extraction, as well as overall robustness and reliability. Careful attention has been paid to the gradual application of pressure between the belts and shearing action caused by forcing the filtrate material through rollers of varying sized to optimize the efficiency of the filtration and dehydration process. Several variants are available to most efficiently meet the needs of your process and the belt width of any model can be selected to achieve capacities from 10 to 35 cubic meters per hour.
