The filter press works with the logic of filtering the solid-liquid mixed sludge fed by high pressure pumps through filter cloths dressed on the filter press plates, collecting the solid particles between the filter plates and taking the liquid phase out of the equipment.
Depending on the physico-chemical properties of the solid-liquid mixture to be filtered, the cloths used in the filter press equipment; It can be produced from polypropylene, cotton, staple fiber or other raw materials.
High-pressure pumps feeding the product to the filter press can be selected from air diaphragm pumps, monopomps, gear oil pumps or lobe pumps. Pumps working with centrifugal logic are generally not preferred in filter press systems.
Compared to the decanter and belt press equipment used as equivalents, the dewatering rate to be obtained from the filter press is higher.
It is fed by pressure pumps in the form of plates compressed with high hydraulic pressure.
Solid materials accumulating in the volume between the plates are removed by opening the plates.
Cake discharge is designed manually or automatically depending on system requirement and customer preference.
Filter presses are used not only in treatment plants, but also in many different industries such as mining, oil filtration, marble, chemistry, silicate, coating (zinc-phosphate) baths, acid filtration and food.
