Our vacuum pan end seals are made from engineered plastics, primarily PTFE, EPDM, and UHMW-PE which offer exceptional slip and adequate hardness to provide a long service life for minimal seal maintenance. On Compositech's horizontal belt filters, end seals are installed with slide strips to reduce the frictional drag of the drainage belts over the vacuum pan.
We manufacture horizontal belt filter vacuum pans with internal separation baffles with end seals, full contact UHMW-PE wear strips, and Compositech Tri-wrap wear belts. Typically these vacuum pans are fitted with a drive-end end seal and a feed-end end seal which are both 1 ½" thick engineered plastic. The seal joints are manufactured for a tight fit with minimal gap space and each end seal includes water fittings.
