City of Stuart Dewatering Belt Press

Wastewater is 98% recyclable water. To produce a high clarity liquid effluent, the City of Stuart utilizes a state of the art dual belt technology belt press which removes the 2% of solids found in wastewater. This unique design provides maximum solids removal combined with low maintenance costs. The 2% solids removed by the belt press are taken to the landfill by a dump truck and the water removed from the solids, known as filtrate, is recycled back into the process.
