HORIZONTAL VACUUM BELT FILTER
One type (HVBF – Horizontal Vacuum Belt Filter) is equipped with a special reinforced rubber belt with draining grooves supporting the filtration cloth.
The belt and the cloth are simultaneously driven continuously.
HVBF is normally used with high capacities, heavy solids and large filtration surfaces.
HORIZONTAL VACUUM CLOTH FILTER
The other type (HVCF – Horizontal Vacuum Cloth Filter) is generally used for smaller filtration surfaces and only requires the filtration cloth without any rubber support. The cloth is driven intermittently.
HVCF is generally used for smaller flow rates and surfaces with lighter solids content.
