Advantages of Innovation

Horizontal Belt Filters provide high extraction efficiency, low cake moisture, increased production and reduced operating costs while achieving maximum filtration area in comparison to other filter options. Horizontal belt filters maximize cake purity at minimum specific cost. Our filters are especially suited for applications requiring low cake moisture and multi-stage washing. Low energy consumption and high filtration rate make Horizontal Belt Filters an excellent choice for a wide range of processes.

Sizes are available up to 257m2 filtration area.



  • Horizontal Belt Filters should be used when: 
  • Thorough cake washing is required with
  • Free settling solids
  • Complete processing of feed materials
  • Maximum product recovery
  • Minimum operating cost 
  • A flexible range of operating conditions is required 
  • Simplicity of operation and maintenance are required 
  • Process contact requires exotic construction materials


Low energy consumption and high filtration rate make the Horizontal Belt Flter an excellent choice for many processes like: 

  • Minerals processes 
  • Metallurgical ores 
  • Power wastes 
  • Chemical processing 
  • Food processing
