Hydrotech Belt Filter

The Hydrotech Belt filter is made for efficient filtration and drainage of sludge and wastewater. It is an automatic, self-cleaning filter specially designed to achieve optimal performance in systems where high solids content in the dewatered sludge is essential.

How it Works

Sludge or wastewater is led into the filter (1) and passes by gravity through the filter belt (2). The belt is designed as a slowly moving conveyer installed in a stainless steel tank. As the water passes through the filter, the filtering process ensures the efficient removal of particles. These particles are drained on the belt to a high dry matter content. The dewatered sludge is removed at the top of the filter (3) and discharged through a hopper (4) for final treatment. Dewatered sludge is scraped off the belt which is cleaned by a high-pressure backwash system* (5) and the rinse water is led either back to the process or to further treatment. (*Backwash unit retracted for visibility.)

The Belt filter is typically operated intermittently, controlled by a level switch.
