Filter Press

Filter press is a pressure filters designed to de-water chemically conditioned sludge on a batch basis using mechanically applied pressure to achieve high solid content sludge cakes. The filter press consists of a series of parallel plates each dressed with a filter cloth and rigidly held together in a structure frame. The filter plate is placed between the stationary and moving platens.

Advantages of filter presses:

  • High performance in terms of dryness (30 to 80%)
  • Simplicity, robustness, reliability
  • Low operating costs
  • Very low consumption of energy and reagents
  • Greatly reduced labor requirements
  • Adaptable to changes in production, concentration, conditioning requirements.
  • Standardization of automatic filter presses. Automatic operation up to 24 h
  • Adaptable to different effluent treatment methods: physical-chemical, biological, electro flocculation, etc.
  • Excellent capture rate for suspended matter
  • Low maintenance costs
  • High level of flexibility in operation
