The Filter Press is a tool used in separation processes, specifically to separate solids and liquids. The machine stacks many filter elements and allows the filter to be easily opened to remove the filtered solids, and allows easy cleaning or replacement of the filter media. It is a piece of equipment used in liquid/solid separation. It separates the liquids and solids using pressure filtration, where in slurry is pumped into the filter press and is dewatered under pressure. The filter press is designed based on the volume and type of slurry that needs to be dewatered.
