Sludge Dewatering Systems > Filter Press - FP Series

Filter presses are a highly efficient device used for removal of sludge from a wastewater source. Filter presses work on feed pressure and can be used for high volume separation of solids from slurries using recessed or membrane plates. When the wastewater passes through the filter plates with the liquid being discharged through the discharge system and the filter medium retain the solid particulates. The wastewater or slurry source is continually fed under pressure into the system until the removed solids are compressed together like a cake, at which point the sludge can be removed usually via gravity into a disposal tank.
