Types of Industrial Water Treatment Equipment

Industrial water treatment equipment comes in a variety of systems all designed to fit your specific operating needs.

Filter presses, bed filters, cartridge filters, and bag filters all shine in their intended applications.

Filter Presses

Where most industrial water treatment equipment is designed to remove solid material from water, filter presses are designed to remove water from the solids.

Filter presses are ideal for any filtration application where enough material needs to be removed so that more conventional filtration methods would be ineffective.

A filter press operates, by exerting physical pressure usually in the form of either air or a water-filled diaphragm on a slurry mixture and extracting the moisture. The remaining cake of material is then disposed of.

Bed Filters

Bed Filters are filters with a bed of material (typically crushed walnut shell, sand, anthracite or activated carbon) that removes contaminants.

Material is collected throughout the depth of the bed, allowing large amounts of material to be collected before a backwash cycle is initiated.

Inlet water pumps through the filtration medium, which collects and suspends contaminants. Once the medium is saturated with contaminants, a backwash cycle is initiated. The filtration medium is fluidized and washed.

This industrial water filtration method cleans the medium and readies the filter for use. This reuse of the filtration medium minimizes waste associated with the process.

Cartridge Filters

Cartridge filters are disposable, replaceable, self-contained filtration units.

They consist of a central perforated core wrapped in layers of filtration material.

Inlet water is pumped in through the top of the filter core and passes through the walls of the filter.

Contaminants can be caught throughout the depth of the filter cartridge, which allows individual cartridges to achieve very high filtration efficiencies.

Cartridge filters are typically used where high purity water is required.

Bag Filters

Bag filters are similar to cartridge filters because they are also disposable and replaceable.

Bag filters are shaped like a large sock and are sometimes called sock filters, filter pods or filter pots.

They catch contaminants on the surface of the bag and are typically used as a low-cost option to remove particulate from wastewater streams.

Reducing Your Operating Costs With An Automatic Filter Press

The automatic filter press is a very specialized tool and it excels at its designed task. Removing moisture from slurry is a difficult but essential part of many industrial processes.

There are many ways to accomplish this, and the automatic filter press requires the least maintenance and operator attention of any of the available options.

Operational Benefits

The Verti-Press automatic filter press offers many benefits over comparable technologies. The largest advantage is in its automation.

The entire process from slurry to cake is handled completely automatically, and the results are discharged out to a single location at the end of every cycle (eliminating the need for redundant processing equipment).

The process is handled by a programmable controller (PLC), which eliminates the need for a full-time operator. These benefits result in a significantly shorter cycle time than competing technologies.

The fact that the Verti-Press chambers themselves are compact and stacked vertically saves floor space. Each chamber can be isolated for individual operation.

The cakes produced can have a moisture content that is far less than those produced by vacuum filtration, plate and frame filters, or belt presses.
