Every operating environment is different but some major reasons to specify a filter press clad in stainless steel include corrosion-resistance and preventing any paint or potential corrosion from getting into the filter cake itself. Did you know that while some suppliers may use 304 stainless steel, use of 316 stainless steel is a superior choice for corrosion resistance, particularly against chlorides or chlorinated solutions?
Applications for our stainless steel filter press solutions are broad-ranging and include many food-grade applications, chemical additives, water treatment, pharmaceutical, and many more applications across a range of sizes and styles.
Pictured here is a small stainless steel sidebar filter press with manual shifting. It is fabricated from grade 316 Stainless steel and satin-polished. The drip tray is similarly fabricated from grade 316 SS and satin-polished. Micronics pays attention to all the details, depending upon each customer’s precise requirement, and this may also include use of a hygienic stainless steel air-operated diaphragm pump. Innovation is at the core of Micronics’ filter press designs.
In addition, as part of its broad-based liquid-solid filtration expertise, Micronics may also provide customers with special food-grade filter cloth and food-grade filter plate packs, expertly selected for the customer’s application.
