The pressure belt filter (PBF) is used for the filtration of liquids by means of a continuous filter or filter fleece. In comparison to hydrostatic filters, the PBF has the advantage that the filtration is performed at a higher pressure. Therefore a higher throughput and a better drainage of the filter cake can be achieved.
The filtration is done by a filter belt made of plastic, adapted to the individual application. The pressure belt filter is made of stainless steel.
