Filter press is used for clarifying intermediate products. Such as suspension water. A suspension water is prepared in a feed tank. A stirrer ensures that the solid remains suspended and does not settle. The pump delivers the suspension water into the individual separating chambers of the filter press. The filtrate passes through the filter cloth and flows into the filtrate tank.

The flow rate through the filter press is controlled by a pump. The pressure occurring during filtration is indicated on a pressure gauge.

The unit is painted steel frame with adjustable footings.
