How does a filter press work?
Filtering is an important process when trying to purify substances, as many contaminants may be easily removed through filtration. Filter presses can be used for a variety of applications such as in the oil industry, large scale vehicle washing, wastewater treatment and much more.
The saturated solution can be pumped into the filter plates that are stacked inline with each other. This initiates the filtration process, and the liquid will be pushed through the plates, leaving behind any solid materials such as carbon, waxes, fats and plant biomass.
This leaves a much cleaner product (at a much faster pace) than regular filtration normally would, due to the pressure applied within these units.
The unit’s connections are stainless steel with tri-clamp fittings, ensuring the tight fit needed for handling high pressures, while also allowing the machine to be disassembled for quick cleaning.
