Horizontal Vacuum Belt Filters for Dewatering
DELKOR’s technology and know-how is founded in the horizontal vacuum belt filter and we remain the supplier of the world’s largest individual machine, with a number of installations across various commodities around the world.
DELKOR filters are efficient and reliable machines suitable for dewatering a wide range of commodities. Utilizing vacuum filtration, DELKOR filters boast low capital, running and maintenance costs, thereby outperforming traditional rotary drum, disc, tilting pan and table filters in all situations where capacity, efficient cake washing and minimum liquor dilution are required.
DELKOR Horizontal Vacuum Belt Filters
The horizontal belt filter is an efficient and reliable liquid/solid separation machine suitable for dewatering a wide range of commodities such as iron ore, mineral sands, lead zinc concentrates, fine coal flotation concentrates, phosphoric acid filtration and others.
Furthermore, horizontal belt filters are being well accepted for tailings filtration – the dewatering of various process plant tailings. They can be employed as stand-alone machines or in combination with other filtration processes.
Dewatered tailings can either be used as mine backfill or sent straight to the Dry Stack Tailings (DST) impoundment. This results in a technically viable and economically feasible solution to handle process plant tailings in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
Customer Project Name Uranium Corporation of India (UCIL) India 2010
Fabrication, supply and installation of horizontal belt filters
The horizontal belt filters were supplied for UCIL's Tumalapalle Uranium Processing Plant, consisting of eleven 110 m² and one 5 m² filters. The twelve belt filters filter leached slurry from the alkali pressure leach autoclave (110 m² filters) and one to filter yellow cake (5 m² filter).
Customer Project Name Hope Downs Mine Australia 2013
Belt filter assemblies with vacuum filtrate systems
DELKOR supplied two 85 m² horizontal belt filters for Rio Tinto Iron Ore’s Hope Downs 4 Iron Ore Fines Processing Plant. The filters were manufactured in China, South Korea and Australia and were assembled in Perth, Australia before being trucked to site 1,200 km away.
