What is a Filter Press


A filter press is a piece of equipment designed for batch process filtration intended to separate solids and liquids using pressure filtration driven by slurry feed pumps. Filter presses have been widely used since the mid-1800s in many industries including Waste-water, Metals and Mining, Chemicals, Cosmetics, Flavors and Fragrances, Pharmaceutical, Industrial, and Beverage Markets.

Filter presses can be defined by two basic types: Plate and Frame Filter Presses, and Recessed Chamber Filter Presses. Recessed Chamber Filter Presses are a more modern design and can be further classified into three categories: Caulked and Gasketed Recessed Chamber Filter Press, Non-Gasketed Recessed Chamber Filter Press, and Membrane Squeeze Recessed Chamber Filter Press.
