Matec Filter Presses

Perfect Dehydration

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.

MATEC filter presses are perfect for all applications in many different industries, thanks to our four ranges: Acquae, Ignis, Terrae, Magnum.

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.

ACQUAE

Acquae is named after the Latin word for Water, because it was created as a project designed for the recovery of water even in case of minimum flow rates. Because water is life!

IGNIS

Ignis is named after the Latin word for Fire, because it is created from materials welded with fire. The Ignis is our medium range. It includes the technical specifications of the bigger machines for uses in many fields.

TERRAE

Terrae is named after the Latin word for Earth, because it is specially created for and completely dedicated to every kind of applications in quarries and mines, that is to say for areas where men use the Earth for progress.

MAGNUM

Magnum is named after the Latin word for Magnificent, because it is our top-of-the-range machine, created for and completely dedicated to every kind of applications in quarries and mines, that is to say for areas where men use the Earth for progress.
