This report summarizes the findings of a study performed to identify and concisely document improved design and operation procedures for belt filter presses for municipal sludge that have been developed from field experience. The study included extensive telephone discussions with belt press operators, visits to nine operating belt filter press installations, contacts with belt press manufacturers, and an extensive literature review. This report discusses application of belt press, as well as selection and application of ancillary equipment associated with the belt filter press.
