Introduction to Tower Press Filter Systems

We at Phoenix Filtration understand the importance of an efficient filtration system in various industrial processes. Our tower press filter systems, also known as tower filter press systems, are conditioned to handle the most demanding of slurry filtration applications. Whether they are serving the mining, chemical processing, or wastewater industries, they effectively and precisely separate solids and liquids.

What is a Tower Press Filter?

A tower press filter is a form of slurry filter system that utilizes high pressure in order to separate solids from liquids. These systems consist of a series of filter plates which are arranged vertically to form a tower-like structure. As slurry is pumped into the filter press, pressure forces the liquid through the filter media to leave the solid particles behind.

This efficient method of filtration is well-known for its high throughput and ability to produce dry filter cakes, ultimately reducing costs and improving the overall efficiency of the process. These slurry filter press systems are designed to handle all sorts of slurry types and are customizable to meet the needs of specific industries, making them versatile and essential in many industrial applications.
