The BHS Rubber Belt Filter is a continuously operating filter for vacuum filtration, cake washing and drying of high solids slurries. The technology is based upon a filter cloth supported by a drainage belt made of rubber, EPDM and other synthetic materials. Individual filtrate tubes separate the filtrates into specific receivers for recovering of mother liquor, wash filtrates, counter-current washing and drying gas. The drainage belt travels on specially-coated rollers eliminating air and water sliding systems.
The roller-supported drainage belt allows for fast filtration and large filter areas up to 200 m² for heavy cakes. Steaming as well as counter-current washing are able to be integrated into the design.
