Filtration technology serving the chemical, mining, food & beverage, metal processing, oil refining, and petrochemicals. We design and manufacture filter presses, pressure leaf filters, pressure nutsche filters, sludge dryers and tubular backwash filters.
Durco Filters Filter Presses are ideal for batch filtration of liquids and slurries with high solids loading (3-30 wt%). Individual, cloth-covered filter plates are pressed together with hydraulic rams forming a filter vessel with internal cavities. The feed pump sends the slurry into the filter press where the clean filtrate passes through the filter cloth leaving behind the solids in the form of a filter cake.The filter plates are separated at the end of the filtration cycle and the solid cake is discharged by gravity.
