Filtration meshes for FGDP gypsum dewatering

The decisive advantage: high cross-stability, even in large woven widths

Along with black coal, natural gas and nuclear power, one of the most important sources of energy is brown coal. Every year, about 180 million tons are open-cast mined in Germany and used in coal-fired power stations to produce electricity. One method used to clean the flue gas produced during coal firing in an environmentally compatible way is the flue gas desulphurization plant (FGDP). A by-product of this process is the FGDP gypsum resulting from gypsum slurries. Filter belts made by GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG facilitate efficient dewatering of FGDP gypsum on vacuum belt filter plants and thus play a key role in the further processing of FGDP gypsum in the building materials industry.
