Filter presses are discontinuous working pressure filter for the separation of slurries. Their effective separation and high solid content in the filter cake give them an advantage over other filter systems.
The separation process of Chamber / Membrane Filter Presses includes the following steps:
Chamber Filter Press:
Membrane Filter Press:
Theoretical approaches can not reflect real filtration processes , as they are not predictable. Well established calculation formula such as the Darcy equation can only form a design approach. Generally test work are necessary to proof the calculation result. OFS has a broad experience of a multitude of applications for sizing of the equipment. References and industry comprehensive know-how form a solid basis for best available support.
If required we would be pleased to support you with filtration test!
