ANDRITZ Sidebar and Overhead Filter Presses

You can expect higher life times from ANDRITZ filter presses: The average life time of an ANDRITZ filter press has proved to be more than 30 years. In order to maintain the high quality standards, finite element method (FEM) analyses are conducted as an integral part of our quality management during the engineering phase. Due to the low mechanical wear, ANDRITZ filter presses require less maintenance, and costs for spare and wear parts can also be kept low.

ANDRITZ Chamber Filter Presses

Less peripheral equipment, resulting in lower investment and OPEX costs: Chamber filter presses are reliable and robust in many different applications.  The plate pack consists of uniform chamber plates with a recess of 15-50 mm to receive the filter cake. The standard material for chamber plates is polypropylene. Possible operating pressures: 6 bar, 15 bar, and 30 bar.

ANDRITZ Membrane Filter Presses

Higher DS content obtained with membrane filter presses: Membrane filter plates are designed in the same way as the chamber plates described above. A flexible membrane is secured to the support body. The membrane is impermeable and compresses the cake within the chamber after the filtration process has been completed. Liquid or gas can be used as the membrane inflation medium. Inflation pressures up to 30 bar are possible, and in special cases even higher.
