Elastomer Belt

NFM developed the 3 wheel Edge Tracker for maximum contact with the edge track guide on the filter belt. Spring tension allows for cloth adjustments to be made without constant operator attention.
NFM supplies the shower bar to keep the filter cloth clean after each discharge cycle the shower bar cleans the filter cloth to keep production from declining as the belt blinds (plugs) with solids.
The NFM Elastomer belt is the “heart” of the Horizontal Vacuum Belt Filter. With the filter cloth on top to capture the solids, the liquid passes through the filter cloth into the drainage grooves of the belt and through the vacuum holes in the belt into the vacuum pan and the piping to the vacuum receiver and filtrate pump for a continuous operation.
Some drainage belts required a guide system and NFM can provide the rollers, etc. that are required.
NFM can custom build an entire belt filter or just the component parts as shown in these belt take-up assemblies.
