Sugar Cane Mud Processing Filter Equipment

sugar cane processing equipmentCompositech’s vacuum belt filters are highly efficient and provide a low maintenance solution for our sugar cane mud processing customers. The Vacuum Belt Filter is capable of washing soluble substances from the cane mud reducing residual sugar content. This continual filtration process in-corporates constant filter cloth washing to provide a clean cloth belt each cycle. Depending on the application, mud washing can be achieved on the filter with the use of hot water imbibtion bars.
