Vogman Technologies - Filter Press
A filter press is a pressure filter which uses different plates to separate solids and liquids. There are different types of automatic filter presses which include an automated control system. These operate via hydraulic pressure; however, there are also manual models operated by turning a screw which causes pressure on the filter’s plates.
Filter presses have many advantages
The use of filter presses leads to a savings in water costs because the liquid extracted by the filter can be recycled in the manufacturing processes. This also results in a reduction in the high cost of transporting sludge and water to the chemical waste treatment plant. In the long term, a filter press pays for itself. There are many types of filter presses, from small, inexpensive models intended for use in small factories to huge filters used in large-scale production units.
