Industrial filter press with 38 filter plates, expandable to 48 filter plates designed for 20 to 25 cubic feet of sludge dewatering. Recessed chamber filter press utilizes gasketed polypropylene filter elements (Polypropylene multi-filament PPL-#7103) which are good for treating general purpose, metal hydroxide and polymerized sludge. Cake thickness is 32mm.
The press only requires air to operate the hydraulic press motor and the plate shifter mechanism. The plate shifter is semi-automatic in that the operator must engage the device and walk with it along the press as it operates to slide plates apart for cake removal. This filter press does include an air back pulse option to help remove filter cake material. There is no cake collection hopper included.
Client would need to supply filtered air, sludge pump and final plumbing connections. Client should confirm compatibility with chemical constituents of the sludge.
