Our filter presses are made of single-block steel from thick slabs, realized through plasma, laser or water-jet manufacturing process and using only first choice components by major manufacturers. Thanks to hi-tech accessories, such as HPT pumps or TT2 Fast, Matec filter presses guarantee a perfect dehydration for any kind of wastewater and slurry.
What is a Filter Press and How Does it Work?
A filter press is one of the oldest and most trusted pieces of dewatering equipment. It’s used for wastewater treatment across a variety of industries and applications. A filter press works by separating out solids from liquids, removing impurities, and suspended solids from industrial wastewater. This allows plant managers to easily handle and dispose of waste while returning clean water to their systems.
Filter presses separate liquids and solids. Specifically, the filter press separates the liquids and solids using pressure filtration across a filter media. Afterward, the slurry is pumped into the filter press and then dewaters under pressure.
