As industrial waste water treatment requirements become more stringent, effective filtration increases in importance. Waste water slurry are pumped into the chambers of the filter press. Filtrate passes through the filter cloth and solids are retained. Solids collect on the cloth, forming an excellent filter cake, as if one were to intentionally pre-coat the cloth. As additional solids are pumped into the chamber, the cake continues to build until the entire chamber is full of dewatered solids. The press is then cleaned and recycled.
With plate sizes ranging from 400 to 2500 mm, these presses offer a simple, reliable method of compressing and dewatering solids down to 15% moisture. This in turn provides clearer filtrate solutions than other systems.
Our Filter Press systems are available with Recessed Chamber, or Diaphragm Squeeze Plates and able to accommodate a wide variety of cloths.
