Filterpresses were introduced at the turn of the century and have been around for many years mainly dewatering waste sludges. They were considered labor intensive machines hence they did not find much acceptance in the sophisticated and highly automated process industries. It was not until sometime in the 60's that this image has changed by the introduction of advanced mechanisms that were oriented towards obtaining low moisture cakes that discharge automatically and enable the washing of the cloth at the end of the filtration cycle.
The Filterpress consists of a head and follower that contain in between a pack of vertical rectangular plates.Each plate is dressed with filter cloth on both sides and, once pressed together, they form a series of chambers that depend on the number of plates. The entire pack of plates is supported by side or overhead beams.
