The Filter Press excels at material from drinking water plants, mining applications, Alum sludge, quarry waste and sand filter backwash.
The unique and fully automatic filter press. Simple, robust and reliable for high preformance cake dryness.
Integration into continuous automatic processes. Runs 24/7 without operator intervention during the cake release and wash cycles. Numerous areas of application. Over 1000 installations.
A filter press is a well-known dewatering technology and is also called plate and frame. The principle of operation is simple, like a static cartridge. The filter press is closed to guarantee the sealing of all the plates together. Then, the sludge, flocculated or not depending of the application, is fed into the press. Suspended solids are captured inside the press, the filtrate passes through the cloths and it builds up cakes until a specific pressure is generated inside the filter press.
The dewatering process is performed by the sludge pump which increases its discharge pressure as the liquid/solid separation gets harder. The distinction between any filter press is at the step when cakes are released. The Fournier FullAuto filter press does not require any human intervention during this stage. A weighing system controls the discharge of every cake and if necessary a shaking system will make the cake drop.
For sticky material, plates are automatically weighed during the cake discharge cycle. A plate over weight detection will generate a shaking cycle.
Plates will be shaken automatically if required by the nature of the sludge or by the command of the plate weighing device.
Robot may also be equipped with a core cleaning mechanism.
Robot can be equipped with a mobile wash manifold to be used with high pressure water or in some specific applications, acid solution.
