Horizontal Belt Filters Market: Introduction
Belt press filters or belt filters are industrial machines used to dewater sludge in the mining, chemical, food processing, and power industries. Horizontal belt filters or horizontal belt press filters are a type of belt filters which provide high extraction efficiency. Horizontal belt filters help in achieving low cake moisture, reduced operating costs, increased production as well as maximum filtration area, as compared to other types of press filters. At a very low cost, horizontal belt filters achieve maximum cake purity. Horizontal belt filters consist of tensioned porous belts and rollers with decreasing diameter which apply mechanical pressure on the slurry. The dewatering operation produces a slurry cake, a non-liquid, dewatered slurry mix. Dewatering results in reduced weight and volume of the slurry, which, in turn, reduces transportation and storage costs. Horizontal belt filters are widely used in chemical, food processing, pharmaceuticals, and petrochemical industries to treat industrial and chemical slurries such as biological sludge, wood pulp, mixed slurry, and various other types.
Horizontal Belt Filters Market: Dynamics
Horizontal belt filters are used across various industries like chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing, and petrochemicals for dewatering of slurries or sludge. They are widely used in fruit juice extraction, sewage treatment, wastewater treatment, mining, metallurgy, breweries, dyeing, chemical factories, and paper industries. Even though other industrial equipment like centrifuges, vacuum-disc filters, and frame filter presses are used for dewatering, horizontal belt filters are more efficient, cost saving, and low maintenance with a long lifespan. These are expected to be the major drivers for the market during the forecast period. The growth in food, pharmaceutical, and petrochemical industries is also expected to drive the horizontal belt filters market in the coming years.
Horizontal belt filters are ineffective at processing high grease feeds and slurry with high oil content. However, given their various advantages over conventional sludge treatment systems, the horizontal belt filters market is expected to register a significant growth rate during the forecast period.
