What is Membrane Filter Press?

The slurry is pumped and fills the chambers at a low pressure which gradually builds-up the cake inside. After that, the membranes, of empty chamber type plates, are pressed back to allow cake formation/cake squeezing by pumping water to the backside of the membranes.

Few big most advantages of the membrane system are as below:

  1. Cakes are obtained with low moisture content compared to normal chamber press.
  2. Cakes may be disposed of and flattened in layers and sufficiently stable to support a tractor/transport.
  3. Intensive soluble recovery or removal of contaminants from the cake may be achieved.
  4. high filtrate clarity may be produced.
  5. It saves the cake drying cost/energy cost for further processing.
  6. It reduces the process cycle time by reducing the drying time cycle.
  7. Helps in decreasing utility consumption by reducing water consumption for cake washing.
  8. Reduce the filtration process time by reducing drying time & cake washing time which leads to an increase in productivity.
  9. Compact design helps in installation as well as saves the land cost.
  10. Reduced pump wear on abrasive media due to low feed pressure
