Using the Belt Blaster belt-thickening dynamic needle spray rotating spray bar from on belt or fabric thickening machines can improve the dewatering ability of the fabric. By spraying the roller side of the belt, the weave porosities are flushed back out the top of the belt. This keeps the back of the belt clean, maintains the rollers and allows for better tracking. Additional belt cleaning is greatly reduced or possibly eliminated and belt life can be extended by years with one application. Water pressure and volume can be reduced, and additional booster pumps can be eliminated due to the increased impingement force. Gravity and press thickening machines can be retrofitted in hours. 866/447-2496;
