Belt Press Services

Magytec Australia Pty Ltd is the agent for Belt Presses from  SernaGiotto Technologies Spa of Italy, and we also have our own belt press designs. 

Ian H Bane our Technical Director, has been responsible for SernaGiotto Belt Presses and associated equipment in Australia over the past 30 years. 

With more than 200 installations, and a large data bank of laboratory and pilot tests, we have extensive experience to offer our clients in belt press technology.   The modular equipment available, from the SernaGiotto 3m belt width Optima design, down to the smallest 1m belt width package dewatering systems, allows us to offer solutions for a wide range of applications.














Getting Your Press Back to Peak Condition

We offer original SernaGiotto spares and some local consumables made to the original designs.

Magytec offers assistance in commissioning, tuning, and problem solving of existing belt press installations, which is particularly useful in older plants where process performance has appeared to deteriorate over time. For more information: Getting the Most Out of Dewatering.

Belt Press Troubleshooting, Optimisation and Recomissioning

We have found that often belt press installations are not running at the maximum efficiency, due to many causes, such as the feed has changed, or personnel turnover has lost the original training, or perhaps the original installation was not set up correctly.  Magytec Australia can help review the complete installation, optimise the settings, check the belt selection, and train the operators. 

In many cases we have found that recommissioning can improve the belt press performance considerably, and also result in savings in consumables such as polymer flocculant.



In mining, the most challenging dewatering task is ultra-fine slimes dewatering, and the SernaGiotto/Magytec experience in both the clarification and dewatering of ultrafine slimes is available.

Most installations in mining incorporate a sedimentation thickener ahead of the belt presses. The thickener and belt press are intimately connected as a system, and our knowledge of both technologies enables us to optimise the complete process, providing reliable operation of the system. Our 3m belt width presses can provide high throughputs.


Magytec International now offers filter belts for standard Sernagiotto sizes from our Sydney store, which ensures minimum delivery time.  We also work closely with leading filter belt manufacturers, and we offer a specialised belt selection and supply service, based on our detailed knowledge of this type of machine.
