What Is a Filter Press?
Filter presses are industrial wastewater treatment products designed to dewater a slurry. This equipment features a tried and true design that uses pressure to remove impurities and suspended solids from industrial wastewater.
Most filter presses consist of four primary components. These include a frame, the manifold system (piping and valves), filter plates and filter cloth. They are an efficient and effective solution for controlling waste, helping businesses of all sizes meet environmental obligations and maintain industry compliance.
How Do Filter Presses Work?
Filter presses go through cycles to filter wastewater. Cycle length depends on the equipment size, performance characteristics and water quality. The process most filter presses follow for sludge dewatering involves:
- Filling: During the filling stage, the press fills with slurry and distributes it evenly across the filter plates.
- Filtering: As pressure builds, the mixture presses against the filter cloth, separating the water and solids.
- Completion: When the chamber fills completely with filter cake, the cycle is complete and ready for a reset.
