Belt filter presses, from Tema Engineers , are used to dewater any type of sludge. Tema Engineers’ engineers can customise its standard models for specific requirements.
Typical applications for the belt filter presses:
- Municipal and industrial sludge
- Production by-products – e.g. chemical, food and paper processing
- Mineral processing industries
The new 7000 belt filter press series design is more space efficient than conventional belt filter presses.
Smaller diameter rollers exert higher pressures, increasing dewatering performance. Other benefits include that its economic to set up, minimal power requirements and automatic operation lowers the running costs.
It also delivers good dewatering results.
The dewatering process takes place in these stages:
- Flocculation – the sludge is combined with a dilute polymer solution in the flocculation tank to form floccs
- Drainage – free water drains away from the floccs on an inclined belt and ploughs turn the sludge to remove more water
- Dewatering – the sludge is compressed between two belts which pass around a perforated roll, followed by 8 solid rolls. Water is squeezed out of sludge throughout
- Cleaning – discharge rolls remove sludge from the belts prior to high pressure spray cleaning
Tema Engineers has 4 different belt filter press 7000 models:
- Belt Filter Press 7000 – Tema Engineers’ compact multi-purpose unit with belt width from 0.5m to 1.5m. Integrated flocculation tank
- Belt Filter Press 7100 – Tema Engineers’ standard multipurpose unit with belt size from 1.75m to 3.00m with separate flocculation tank
- Belt Filter Press 7500 – Designed for sewerage sludge treatment with belt size from 1.75m to 3.00m, with separate flocculation tank
- Belt Filter Press 7600 – Designed for mineral processing with belt size 1.75m to 3.00m with separate flocculation tank
