Vertical Tubular Filter

The Technology is a process for the dewatering of mining sludges, industrial sludge and water works sludge.APPLICATIONS OF TUBULAR FILTER PRESS (PRESS-EX®)

  • Dewatering or thickening of inorganic sludge types, particularly water works, mining and mineral processing sludges.
  • Pre-treatment for the incineration of noxious or toxic sludge.
  • As micro-filter for feed clarification.

ADVANTAGES OF TUBULAR FILTER PRESS (PRESS-EX®)

  • The system produces higher cake solids concentration than conventional systems.
  • The system provides for automatic handling of the cake.
  • Make obsolete the use of poly-electrolytes for sludge dewatering.
  • The operation of the system is simple and requires little supervision or maintenance.
  • The system is compact and therefore ideally suited where space is a limiting factor.

BEST SUITED TO THE FOLLOWING APPLICATIONS

  • Chrome Mining
  • Precious Metal Mining
  • Water Works
  • Industrial Sludge
