Chamber filter press
A chamber filter press consists of a number of square plates in which 2 plates each form one chamber. The depth of the chambers ultimately determines the thickness of the press cake and is on average 2 to 3 cm. The capacity of the filter press, expressed in liters, is determined by the number of chambers, the depth of the chambers and the dimensions of the plates. A filter cloth is placed over each plate, so that the sludge is filtered. The sludge is supplied to the rooms. The plates are pressed mechanically or hydraulically against each other, so that the pressurized water is pressed out through the filter cloth. This compressed water is collected in a collection tube and then sent back to the water treatment plant.
