Reduce component stress, improve safety and lower operating costs with Multotec’s filter press systems!


Over 40 years’ experience in the mining, mineral processing, petrochemical and power generation industries has allowed Multotec to optimise their operations by developing and manufacturing high-quality, application-specific filter presses.

Rapid separation times increase processing efficiency

Separation cycles are completed within 15 - 20 minutes – a 10-minute decrease in processing time when compared to conventional hydraulic presses.

Reduced component stress, improved safety and lower operating costs

Just 8% of the pressure that powers conventional hydraulic presses is required for rapid filter press clamping force, contributing to a saver process environment.

Automate your press’ internal cleaning

Excessive build-up of material residue is eliminated by internal travelling spray bars that wash the entire filter cloth array simultaneously between each cycle. The process takes only 40 seconds.
