DEWATERING TEST KITS
Use Compression for Effective Dewatering
Unlike the pressure filters and vacuum filters that use pressure and vacuum for dewatering, belt press filtration uses compression to squeeze out the water under a pressure profile. The first step is the gravity drain deck where flocculated solids are introduced on to a belt filter media and allowed to drain freely. As the free water leaves the sludge, the next step is the introduction into the pressure rolls where the sludge compresses the pressure rolls. The cake between the belts is removed and the cake thickness is measured.
Included with the Belt Press Filtration Test Kit is the pressure rolls, filter media top and bottom, two filter media samples and a gravity drain funnel. A hard-shell case is portable equipped with rollers for ease of mobility.
