As with so many things, the solution to expanding the capacity of your filter press lies in advance planning: Anticipating growing needs of your operation.
When planning for your new filter press, we highly encourage you to plan for production growth by specifying and purchasing an expandable press right at the get-go.
Did you know that not all filter presses are expandable? In fact, the vast majority of them are not inherently designed for expansion. By purchasing a filter press with a frame that is large enough to accommodate more plates in the future and purchasing an “expansion piece,” you are wisely anticipating your operation’s growth trajectory. Plus, you can save money now by not purchasing all of the plates and filter cloth upfront.
