Filtration Products: Pressure Filters

About Pressure Filters

Pressure filters rely on a porous media to retain solids from high concentration slurries and use the feed pressure of the pump to "squeeze" the free water from the resulting sludge cake. The cloth retains the solids and the cake removes more and finer solids, resulting in a better, more efficient filter.

These filters come in a variety of configurations including flat bed, plate and frame, recessed plate, pressure leaf and tubular back-pulse designs. They are used for solids removal, solids recovery, fluid recycling and solids dewatering.

Pressure filters clarify process fluids, clean wastewater and reduce the cost of hauling fluids or wet slurries off-site for disposal.
