A filter press is used anywhere there is a need to separate heavy solids from a liquid. Most times the slurry will be pumped from the bottom of a clarifier cone or a sludge thickening tank into a filter press. The end result of the particulate accumulated from a filter press becomes a filter cake.
The Filter Press has been the focus of Met-Chem manufacturing for many years. We have built a solid reputation for building quality Filter Presses, Clarifiers, Sludge Dryers, Complete Waste Treatment Systems, Filter Cloths and Filter Press Plates. Our filter presses have been used in a variety of industries from plating and metal finishing to chemical and food processing to name a few. Met-Chem Filter Presses feature heavy duty steel construction with polypro gasketed plates. These filter presses can be manufactured with manual or automatic closures, but always with a hydraulic cylinder for sure, high pressure closing. Met-Chem's filter presses are always expandable for larger future capacity by adding longer sidebars and additional plates.
