About Filter Presses

Filter presses are used for coarse filtration, filtering the thickener underflow in processing plants is an example of filter press application. A single filter press can only be operated in batch process. For continuous processing, two or more units are required.

How Filter Press Works

Plates are compressed using a hydraulic pump. The slurry is then pumped into the plates, as the slurry passes through the filter media cake starts to form in the void between the plates.

The filtrate discharges out through the side of the plates. As the feed pump builds up pressure, the cake formation continues until the maximum pressure or maximum/desired cake thickness is reached.
