Filter Presses

The FILTER PRESS  has numerous versions. The illustration shows a press with caulked-in metal septa with recessed cake space.

Other types have flush plates dressed with paper or cloth separated by open frames where the cake is formed.

The presses may be automated. Some operate up to 250 psi. (18 atm.).

The filter is used where dry cake discharge is required and in systems where no dangerous or toxic fumes exist.
