The vacuum box is located under the rubber belt on the outside edge. For larger width machines (3 m and 4.25 m wide) a box can be mounted on each side of the belt. This offers a number of advantages over the conventional rubber belt concept.
The vacuum box is easily accessible as it is on the outside of the filter.
The box is stationary as access for maintenance and cleaning is via removable panels on the box.
The vacuum box acts as the gas-liquid separator eliminating the need for separate vessels. Piping can also be fixed.
The overall height of the fi lter is reduced as there is no requirement for space under the belt for lowering of the vacuum box.
There are no holes in the centre of the rubber belt so it can be reinforced across its total width thus increasing belt life.
