The Sumi Engineering Belt Filter Press dewaters slurries of pre-thickened solids from a pumpable liquid phase to a solid, conveyable, and stackable cake. Over 2 years ago, Sumi belt presses were applied for dewatering thickened tailings resulting from mineral washing processes. Today, belt filter press dewatering remains a preferred technology in the construction aggregate, mining, industrial and municipal markets.
The Sumi Engineering belt filter press is available in several different configurations, each suited to the specific application. The model WX is designed for rugged industrial applications and include features such as a fully welded mainframe, oversized bearings, unique corrosion protection, and multiple compression zone configurations. The model LC is a compact model that provides a lower cost dewatering solution for smaller applications.
