Advantages of Filter Press Pilot Testing

The MicroPress is supplied with several filter cloth styles, hand-selected for your application and pilot testing needs. The unique design allows for chamber thicknesses ranging from 15 mm up to 60 mm.

There are many goals of filter press pilot testing. Test presses may be used for:

  • Testing feasibility of a new process
  • Determining if slurry can be effectively and efficiently filtered
  • Vetting potential enhancements to an existing process
  • Testing different treatment chemistries such as flocculants and coagulants and their effect on filter cake consistency
  • Optimizing cycle time
  • Optimizing filter cloth selection
  • Determining improvements to filter cake dryness that may be achievable with minor process changes
  • Testing Membrane Squeeze in a bench-scale unit
  • Determining sizing and scalability for full-scale filter press system
