Record 2 1981-01-26

English

Subject field(s)
  • Wastewater Treatment
CONT

... the principle of continuous filtration under pressure on a belt has its limits; ... technological factors limit the pressure applied, which is generally no greater than 2 bars, ... owing to the danger of the sludge being squeezed out. Consequently the dryness of the cakes will never reach that attained, ... on batch-operation plate filter-presses designed for operating pressures of 15 bars.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Traitement des eaux usées
CONT

Le principe de la filtration continue sous pression sur bande a cependant ses limites; [...] la pression appliquée [...] ne dépasse généralement pas deux bars, [...] en raison du risque de fluage de la boue. De ce fait, la siccité des gâteaux produits n'atteindra jamais celle atteinte, par exemple, sur des filtres-presses à plateaux à fonctionnement discontinu et prévu pour des pressions de fonctionnement de 15 bars.
