DEFINITION filter used to separate solids from liquids that can be operated with gravity, vacuum, or pressure (via presses), or a combination thereof REFERENCE European Commission. JRC. Correspondence dated 16.10.2015

DEFINITION biosolids/sludge dewatering device that applies mechanical pressure to a chemically conditioned slurry sandwiched between two tensioned belts by passing the belts through a serpentine-like series of rollers with decreasing diameters REFERENCE Komline-Sanderson, <i>Komline-Sanderson Kompress® Series III Belt Filter Press</i>, [22.6.2016]
COMMENT The machine can actually be divided into three zones: gravity zone, where free draining water is drained by gravity through a porous belt; wedge zone, where the solids are prepared for pressure application; and pressure zone, where medium, then high pressure is applied to the conditioned solids.<BR>Typically, a belt filter press receives a slurry ranging from 1-4% feed solids and produces a final product of 12-35% cake solids. Performance depends on the nature of the solids being processed.<HR>See also:<BR><LI><I>screw press</I> (Related) [ IATE:3565645 ]</LI><LI><I>gravity belt</I> (Related) [ IATE:3566947 ]</LI><LI><I>belt filter</I> (Broader) [ IATE:1651675 ]</LI>
