Filter Press

Multotec filter press systems increase cake dryness and reduce processing times by up to 10 minutes per cycle. Used globally by international mineral processing companies, they are designed to isolate solids and liquids in fully automated, energy-efficient press-separation cycles.

Automated injection, material dispatch, pressing and self-cleaning are features across this range. Brand names include the well-known Micronics and Seprotech filter presses, which all deliver to specified press requirements.

Multotec’s experience in all aspects of the mineral processing industry and solid/liquid separation has allowed the mineral processing equipment manufacturer to design a range of filter press systems that enhance production and efficiency.

Multotec Filter Presses:

  • Produce a low moisture content product
  • Reclaim discharged minerals through unique filter press designs
  • Offer fast, automated sludge separation

Filter Press advantages:

  • Improved safety and lower operating costs:
    The clamping force on Multotec’s press filters is drastically lower than conventional hydraulic filter presses. This makes the process environment safer, while the reduced stress on components means your filter press equipment lasts longer.

  • Rapid separation times increase processing efficiency:
    The rapid filter press’ separation cycle times are completed within 15 to 20 minutes – a decrease in processing time of up to 10 minutes, compared to conventional hydraulic presses – allowing maximum processing capability.

  • Reduced component stress, improved safety and lower operating costs: 
    The rapid filter press’ clamping force is produced by just 8% of the pressure powering conventional hydraulic filter presses, meaning the process environment is safer, while the reduced stress on components ensures longer equipment lifespan.

  • Automate your press’ internal cleaning:
    The rapid filter press contains internal travelling spray bars that wash the entire filter cloth array simultaneously between each cycle in just 40 seconds, eliminating excessive build-up of material residue and removing the need for manual intervention and unnecessary downtime.

  • After sales services:
    All of Multotec’s solutions are supported by an extensive after sales service that includes inspections and maintenance agreements.

  • Holistic service and maintenance support:
    Multotec offers strategic stockholdings and sustained, comprehensive field service and maintenance support with a team of specially trained engineers – ensuring that your rapid filter press operates at maximum productivity efficiency through total component maintenance and fast resolutions of service downtime.

World leader in custom, application-specific mineral processing technology.

Custom-designed Filter Press:

Sludge Filter Press

Our range of sludge filter press is designed to reduce waste while effectively reclaiming discharged minerals. These presses have lower drive pressures to prolong apparatus life, improve safety, and lower operating costs.

Plate and Frame Filter Press

Currently called industrial filter press, Multotec’s plate and frame filter presses have enhanced design to lower your overall cost per ton processed. Filter cloth is strong and highly durable, providing high performance. 

Recessed Plate Filter Press

High filtration capacity ensures a stable and disinfected product when you use recessed plate filter presses from Multotec. In addition, they minimise both storage and disposal costs, contributing to an increase in your bottom line.

Design innovations driving greater performance:

Plate Clamping

This Seprotech Rapid Filter Press plate pack is clamped in position by a rubber encapsulated chamber or hydraulic cylinders. This means rapid, efficient operation due to the low volumes of water and improved safety thanks to low-pressure water to a max. of 16 bar.

Plate Tilting

The cake discharge system on the Seprotech Rapid Filter Press is the only filter press that has a plate tilt function incorporated into the design. Once the press is opened, an air operated actuator tilts the plates of the entire plate pack discharge the cakes simultaneously.

Plate Pack

The Seprotech Rapid Filter Press opens and closes in less than 1 second per plate in a concertina-type movement. The bomb-bay doors are designed with steep angles and a sealing lip that hooks into position. This removes any drippage beneath the press and accommodates the full flow during the wash cycle.

Filter Cloths

Filter cloths form part of Multotec’s filter press range of accessories. The range is made of lightweight to heavy-duty filter cloths, allowing you to optimise your filtering operation. All our filter cloths are available in a range of synthetic and natural fibres and are either felted or woven.


Seprotech Rapid Filter Process Opens and closes in less than 1 second per plate. It is hydraulically or electrically driven and filtrate quality monitoring is enabled.
