Because early models of belt filter presses (developed from technology associated with the manufacture of paper) performed poorly, improved design and operation procedures for these presses were studied. Belt filter presses form part of a sludge dewatering system, and in terms of integration within the overall treatment process, their performance varies directly with the solids concentration of the feed sludge. Overall performance can be improved if fluctuations in the quality and character of the feed sludge are minimized.
