Rapid separation times increase processing efficiency: The rapid filter press’ separation cycles are completed within 15 - 20 minutes, a 10-minute processing time decrease compared to conventional hydraulic presses.
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.
Automate your press’ internal cleaning: Internal travelling spray bars wash the entire filter cloth array simultaneously between each cycle in 40 seconds, eliminating excessive build-up of material residue.
