Met-Chem - Standard Filter Press
Filter presses (also known as Plate and Frame) have many benefits. One, in particular, is that for such a large piece of machinery it has few parts to it. The different parts to a filter press include the steel skeleton, the filter plates, the hydraulic pump and cylinder, the plumbing which includes the manifold and center feed pipe, and the filter press cloths. The simplicity of the filter press means there is little maintenance work that is needed to be done to the press.
The filter press skeleton and filter press plates need zero repairs and as long as the press is operated properly they will last a lifetime.
Filter Presses have 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 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 can be expanded for larger future capacity by building it in a larger skeleton with a distance piece. Once you are ready to expand, you can remove the distance piece and add the extra plates.
Met-Chem has the capability to manufacture to your specifications. Our Sales and Engineering team will work together to find the proper solutions to effectively handle your filtration needs. In addition to having a long history of being used for wastewater treatment, Met-Chem filter presses have been successfully used in food grade applications. Aside from our standard polypro plates, we can provide membrane plates for special or food grade applications.
