The Serfilco filter press comprises of a set of 18 x 630mm² vertical, recessed membrane plates, pressed against each other by a hydraulic closing ram at one end of the set.

Sludge dewatering using filter presses has become accepted as a reliable and efficient method of dewatering effluents and sludges from industrial and municipal waste treatment processes.  However, this particular press has not been used for effluent or sludge. It was used to filter Dyes.

Typical Applications

  • Sludge dewatering for wastewater treatment. Such as sand & gravel wastewater, stone cutting wastewater, FGD sludge, physicochemical sludges, dredging slurry, drilling sludge, paint wastewater, acetylene sludge, concrete wastewater, electroplating wastewater, etc...
  • Foodstuff: starch, sugar refinery, vinegar, sauces, oil, etc...
  • Chemicals: calcium carbonate, chemical fertilizer, salty mud, activated carbon, and so on.
  • Medicine: vitamin, oral liquid etc...
  • Mining: various hydrometallurgy, tailings, coal washery, etc...
  • Ceramic slurry. For example, pottery clay, tableware, electrotechnical porcelain, etc...

Filter presses are a popular tool for solid-liquid separation. There are many filter press types. Chamber filter press is the most popular among them. Because it has a simpler structure and can bear higher filtering pressure or high temperature to get perfect filtration results. Chamber filter press also called recessed filter press.

Membrane filter plates are hollow and combined by three layers. But chamber filter plates are solid and integrated. Thus it not only can ensure higher filtering pressure but also has fewer operation processes than membrane type filter press. Additionally, with its unique formula and production technology, our chamber filter press can be designed for high-temperature materials or for high-temperature materials. So it has the widest applications in various industries. Besides that, an automatic filter press can discharge cakes automatically to save labour costs and improve efficiency. SINO chamber filter presses have reached numerous countries, including America, Britain, Hungary, Russia, etc...
