APPLICATION OF FILTER PRESS

SIGNIFICANT INDUSTRIES IN WHICH FILTER PRESSES ARE USED EXTENSIVELY

PIGMENTS & DYE MANUFACTURING

Corrosive environment, elevated temperatures and often volatile atmospheres demand suitable Filtration and Separation method. Over last few decades, Conventional devices such as drum Filters & Centrifuges have been successfully replaced by Filter Presses.

Typical Applications are:-
  • Titan Dioxide (TIO2) {finishing/ desalting & waste/ neutralization }
  • Caustic Solutions
  • Acids
  • Coatings

FOOD & AGRICULTURE

Filter Presses are the standard for applications in the sugar industry as a Juice Purification Systems. The robust and high performance design as well as the high degree of automation makes these filters the ideal choice for many applications in this market.

Typical Applications are:-
  • Wine and Juices
  • Beer
  • Edible oils
  • “Green Energies” (Bio- ethanol)
  • Animal waste
  • Sugar & sweeteners processes

CHEMICAL / PETROCHEMICAL

The presence of contaminants in the petrochemical manufacturing process can have a direct impact on the quality of the material produced. Therefore, Chemical/ Petrochemical Industries require large capacities filter presses with fully automatic operation.

Typical Applications are:-
  • Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3)
  • Barium sulphate (Completion fluid)
  • Silicates (product & waste)
  • Polymers (Fibers)
  • Brine Solutions (Coolant recovery)

RECYCLING & ENVIRONMENT

A major environmental problem, issues arises due to hazardous waste released by numerous industries all across the world. Due to current strict Global environmental Policies, filter presses are also contributing significantly in this segment.

Typical Applications are:-
  • Stone processing (cutting, polishing & gravel washing applications)
  • Plastic fibers (Carpet recycling)
  • Power plants (Flue Gas Desulphurization, FGD)
  • Industrial waste
  • Chemical waste

PHARMACEUTICAL & BIOTECH

Demand for precisely controlled processes and clean environments in Pharmaceutical & Biotech industries can be met with Filter Press Systems.

Typical Applications are:-
  • Yeast
  • Bio solids
  • Seaweed
  • Blood plasma
  • Enzymes

PULP & PAPER

Although centrifuges are the preferred choice of dewatering equipment in this industry, Filter Press Systems have proven to provide superior results in regard to solid capture rate, final moisture content and salt removal (cake washing).

Typical Applications are:-
  • Green liquor (Soda Recovery)
  • Coatings waste treatment

MINING & MINERALS

Large capacity Filter Presses for harsh environments with their innovative cake discharge system is an economic choice for this industry. There is a huge demand for large capacity filter presses.

Typical Applications are:-
  • Mineral concentrates
  • Flotation slurries
  • Coal
  • Clays (Kaolin, Bentonite, Ceramics)
