Filter Presses

Waste Water Filter Presses

When it comes to separating solids from fluids, a filter press is a preferred method among many. In fact, utilizing a filter press is a very popular method for mud extraction. What is the role of the filter press in the water treatment process? What sizes are available? These questions and more are discusses here.

What Is a Filter Press

Filter Press’s Role in Water Treatment

Water treatment is required in a number of industries. In fact, food, pharmaceutical, and chemical are a few examples of industries that benefit from water treatment systems. The stone fabrication industry is also a beneficiary of water treatment technology. How so?

Many fabrication shops use water during the fabrication, cutting, and smoothing of various natural and other fabricated materials such as:

  • Granite
  • Marble
  • Quartzite
  • Limestone
  • Onyx
  • Soapstone
  • Slate
  • Travertine
  • Quartz
  • Cultured Marble
  • Ceramics
  • Porcelains
  • Concrete

During some fabrication processes, water is used to keep the temperature from getting too high on certain materials. For example, The polishing process on quartz surfaces can burn the resin that is often used as a binding material. The result of using water during fabrication is the presence of a mixture of stone dust and water. This “slurry” is separated into reusable water and mud. Separating the stone dust from the water is often performed by using a filter press.
