Intech Environmental Ltd
A filter press de-watering system is a liquid-solid separation device used to reduce the volume and weight of slurry waste or process stream by separating liquid(Filtrate) and solid (Filter cake). This process is often referrred to as de-watering. the operation of the filter preee de-watering system is therefore a batch process. Depending on the particular application, the filter press de-watering system may be used to recover the solid particulate, the liquid waste steam, or both.
The filter press de-watering system accomplishes de-watering within a series of chambers into which slurry is pumped, Filtered liquid (filtrate) passes through filter cloths and exits the filter press de-watering system leaving behinde filtered solids(Filter cake).
The filter press de-watering system is then opened anf the filter cake is discharged by gravity as each plate is shifted
