Since the nineteenth century belt conveyors have been used as an effective method for transporting bulk materials, and are now one of the most widely used and efficient means of transporting compactable and granular solids. Water and wastewater treatment facilities have made good use of this type of conveyor for transporting dewatered biosolids, sludge, screenings or grit.

Dewatered sludge cake can consist of wastewater plant biological sludge from the treatment of municipal wastewater, or dewatered water treatment plant sludge. Dewatered sludge cake solids content ranges from 10% to 30% solids depending on the dewatering system used. A properly designed conveyance system with the ability to handle the special characteristics of sludge is critical to effective transport of material through the process.

The extensive use of stainless steel in construction, including platforms and structure, of JMS Bio-BELT (Belt Conveyor System) makes them a great choice for any industry conveying corrosive material. JMS can specially design a custom conveyor or full system to meet the needs of your process.

Bio-BELT (Belt Conveyor System) Key Features

Heavy Duty Idlers

• Stainless steel support frames
• Non-stick nonmetallic rolls
• CEMA compliant
• Sealed for life

Troughed Belt

Represent the most cost-effective option available and are ideally suited for straight runs, long conveyors, or conveyors with plows.

Side Wall Belt

Used when transitions from horizontal to incline are needed. Walls act to contain the material throughout and eliminate the need for skirtboards.

Cleated Belt

Cleated belts with sidewalls allow for inclines greater than 30°.
