Micronics Engineered Filtration offers a full range of standard and custom filter presses for your applications, large and small.

Rollbar Filter Press

This 19 cubic foot Rollbar Filter Press provides reliable, automatic, low-maintenance operation for filtration of high solids-content slurries where quick cycle time is required.

For smaller-scale applications (1-20 cubic feet) that need to run without significant operator assistance, the Micronics Rollbar Filter Press may be just what you are looking for. The Rollbar filter is fully automatic and provides for a low-maintenance operation with PLC control. With the Rollbar, the operator is not required to be at the press nearly as often as with a conventional filter press. Did you know…the Rollbar provides quick opening/closing. On completion of its filtration cycle, the filter press automatically opens all of the filter chambers and mechanically discharges the filter cakes, all at once.

Another plus with our Rollbar design…our bump quickly bumps each plate individually so as not to create a large dynamic load on the floor structure. The competition actually bumps all the plates at once and when the plates all drop, the floor shakes. We truly take pride in our designs, giving you one less thing to have to worry about.

The Rollbar is outfitted with a complete safety system – not just safety guards – to fully enclose the machine and ensure the safety of workers who may be in proximity.

Some markets and applications that are successfully using Micronics’ Rollbar filter press design include chemicals, industrial sludge, mining, wastewater, and the filtering of high solids content slurries requiring quick cycle times. While smaller-scale operations are certainly enjoying the benefits of the Rollbar design, sizes range from 630mm up to 1200mm.
