ANDRITZ Horizontal vacuum belt filter

Effective continuous solid/liquid separation


Horizontal vacuum belt filter 
The ANDRITZ horizontal vacuum belt
filter is a continuous vacuum filter that
makes use of the most modern design
capabilities to make it an efficient and
reliable solid/liquid separation unit
able to operate under the most ardu-
ous conditions. The filter has been
simplified for easy operation, yet all
the wearing parts remain easily acces-
sible for routine maintenance pur-

■ Gold and silver recovery in cyanide ANDRITZ are able to manufacture wetted
processes parts of the horizontal vacuum belt filter from
■ Washing of Phosphate rock a variety of materials to accommodate
■ Recovery of Manganese process conditions.
■ Copper Cement
■ Tailings washing as final stage after CCD The belt filter has numerous advantages
over rotary type filtes:
Dewatering of heavy and coarse ma-
terials including: ■ High filtration rates
Ilmenite Rutile ■ Flexibility of operation
Zircon Chromite ■ Excellent washing efficiency

long life by preventing contact between the
carcass and corrosive filtrates.

■ Vacuum boxes are made from:

• a selection of stainless steels or
duplex steels
• Glass reinforced plastic,
The vacuum box is designed so that any ex-
cess lubricating, cooling and seal water is
collected and drained away immediately, via
an integral spillage launder.

■ Wear strips
These are made from highly wear resistant,
low friction material and are attached to the
vacuum box shoulders to locate the loose
wear belt system.

High extraction efficiencies are the key to
profitability in most washing applications,
whether Gold, Uranium, Phosphoric acid,
Copper or Alumina.

Washing efficiencies greater than 99,8% can

be achieved when a flooded level of solution
is maintained in the wash zone, allowing for
plug flow displacement.
