What are vacuum belt filters used for?

A vacuum belt filter is used for the filtration of liquids and dewatering of sludges. They utilize a vacuum pump to facilitate the process. They employ a mobile filter cloth that rests on a supporting belt or conveyor. Unlike conventional filters, the action of gravity is enhanced by the vacuum applied to the underside of the filter medium. As a result, higher yields and effective cake dehydration are achieved.

It is a continuous process where the suspension is introduced at one end of the platform, and the mobile filter belt moves, allowing the drainage of the filtered product. Solid washing is also performed on the belt. At the end of the journey, the product cake is discharged and recovered using a scraper blade. Depending on the process type and desired separation degree, the vacuum level, belt speed, and feed flow rate can be adjusted in belt filters. These factors determine the cake thickness and system efficiency. At Foeth you will find different brands and types of high-Performance and efficient vacuum belt filters for the Chemical, Pharmaceutical or Food industry.

Types of Vacuum Belt Filters and Applications

Belt filters are typically constructed using continuous rubber belts or sliding metal plates. Based on this, we can distinguish two types of systems:

  • Tray-type filter: They use a continuously moving filter cloth on vacuum trays, which are appropriately slotted to allow the filtration process.

  • Rubber belt filter: The filter cloth support moves on a rubber surface, which may have grooves to facilitate the circulation of the filtrate to a main drain. The main applications of belt filters are found in the food industry, mining, chemical industry, pharmaceuticals, and industrial waste treatment, primarily for sludge dewatering.
