New self-cleaning Belt FilterThe latest innovation from SC Costruzioni Meccaniche is called Belt Filter, a self-cleaning belt filter made of AISI 304 stainless steel, composed of two lateral frames and longitudinal reinforcements.
The continuous belt filter comes complete with self-cleaning teeth (a patented system) made of durable, acid and wear-resistant plastic, assembled on a stainless-steel frame with a pitch of 100mm. The sides are composed of steel sheets which are crossed over to form a constant barrier against the outflow material. The base, which consists of a nylon sweeper, prevents solid bodies from crossing the area around the rotating teeth.
The belt separates the suspended solids from the slurry and channels it to the top of the machine. Thanks to the special shape of the teeth, the inversion of the belt motor activates the self-cleaning mechanism, which is made even more efficient by the counter-rotating, brushes installed in the discharge section of the machine. Due to the force of gravity, the solids fall into the designated area. The counter-rotating, nylon brush is powered by its own gear motor and mounted on a steel frame, composed of lubricated supports and cushions.
