Filter Press applications

A Filter Press is most commonly used to dewater sludge generated from industrial wastewater treatment plants.

The Hydroflux chamber filter press is a batch system and is ideally suited to small to medium volumes of sludge. One of the key benefits to the filter press is the dry solids concentration that is unmatched by other dewatering technologies.

The nature of the pressurised dewatering processes lend the filter press to non-greasy applications such as the metal industry where dry solids concentrations in excess of 60% are possible

Hydroflux Industrial can supply various types of presses including standard plate and frame, membrane systems and semi automated in capacities up to 5000L.

The Filter Press offers several advantages over other dewatering systems:

  • Very dry filter cake
  • Operational requirements are very low
  • Capital cost is low
  • Maintenance is relatively simple and can usually be undertaken by a non- specialised maintenance team
  • Start up and shut down is quick and simple
  • A Filter Press can be used for dewatering primary or biological sludge from many applicaiton including:
    • Metal Processing
    • Ground Water Treatment
    • Site Remediation
    • Breweries & Wineries
    • General Industry
    • Heavy Industry
    • Pulp & Paper
    • Vegetable Industry
