FILTER PRESS

WASTE SLUDGE PROCESSING

Filter presses are one of the first equipment used for sludge dewatering and filtration. It works on the principle that the solid phase accumulates in the spaces between the filter press plates and the liquid phase is filtered off. Many models such as manual, full automatic drying etc. are available depending on the usage area. It provides the highest dewatering efficiency among the equivalent technologies with its solid content reaching 30-35%. It is widely used thanks to its low investment and operating costs and easy operation.

Application Examples: 

  • WASTE SLUDGES formed in wastewater treatment facilities are dewatered in filter press. The storage, transport and disposal of sewage sludge is facilitated; expenses relate to these operations are reduced.
  • The waste water lime formed as a result of production activities is dewatered in the filter press in the ACETYLENE PRODUCTION FACILITY.
  • High amounts of water are used in vehicle and floor washing in CONCRETE FACILITIES. The recovery of these waters is possible by filtration. Filtration is preferred because of its high purification efficiency and ease of operation. This reduces transport and storage costs. The facilities become cleaner and greener.
  • Sludge extracted from COAL WASHING FACILITIES is dewatered and the water is reused. The sludge from the filter press is stored more regularly in solid form.
  • It is used for filtration in the production of various chemical compounds (sodium bisulphite, zinc sulphate, copper sulphate, zinc oxide etc.) in the CHEMICAL INDUSTRY.
  • Filter press is used in Cold Press FILTRATION OF VEGETABLE OILS. Filtration is required to ensure that the resulting oil is bright and free of deposits.
  • The pollutants in the oil are filtered using filter press in the PRODUCTION OF BIODIESEL.
  • Filter press is used for filtration of marble cutting waters.
  • Filter press is used for dewatering and shaping the dough in CERAMIC PRODUCTION.
  • It is used for filtration of coating baths in METAL COATING facilities.
  • It is used for the filtration of gypsum waters and recovery of precious metal from castor oil in JEWELLERY industry.
  • There are also many dewatering and filtration applications.
