Because of its simplicity and flexibility, the chamber Filter Press has been widely applied in clarification and dewatering applications. Membrane Filter Press technology is gaining increased acceptance because it reduces subsequent processing or disposal costs for filter cake. In many applications the membrane Filter Press significantly reduces residual moisture content, making this technology attractive for new plants and for upgrading existing facilities. In both cases the careful selection of plate and membrane materials is essential to the successful performance of the process.
Membrane Filter Press Plates have a chamber below the drainage surface that can be inflated. The common method used is water pressure, which is generated by pumping into the squeeze cavity to inflate the face of the plate against the filter cake. Membrane Plates are used to reduce the cake moisture content & shorten the filtration cycle time.
